I just wanted to throw out my prediction. I actually made this prediction about 2 months ago, but officially stating it here. I pick the spurs to repeat as champions in 6 games. Reasons why I pick the spurs and pistons. I like both teams is one reason. Spurs are defending champions, they actually got better with some signings they made, Tony Parker is better, Tim Duncan is better as well, they are the best defensive team in basketball, they are on fire at the moment, 16 straight wins. The pistons have the second best defense in basketball, they have 4 big guys that are great blockers and rebounders, the nets don't have true big men, they have kidd as the play maker, but hamilton and billups are great defenders as well and will keep him in check, pistons are on a great streak since getting rasheed wallace, they have a great bench now. Off/On the topic, how come there is not a sports section on this forum?
