Check me out breaking down the NBA Finals and why I believe the Lakers will win. You will also get guest appearances from Ron Jeremy and The Rock.
For the written version of the pick just keep reading:
The Lakers after last year disappointment seem a lot more focused and determined this go around.
2- Home Court Advantage
The 2-3-2 format helps the home team a lot more than the 2-2-1-1-1 format.
3- Zen Master vs. Master of Panic
Phil Jackson trumps Stan Van Gundy in the coaching department.
4- The "O" Factor
Lamar Odom is the key to the series and I think he will come up big.
I think this will be Kobe's last shot at that elusive title without Shaq. If he doesn't win this year his legacy will be forever tarnished.
