2008 NBA Finals Preview

Posted on: June 1, 2008 2:49 pm
The NBA Finals is just a few days away all of the excitement is building up not only for both Celtics and Lakers fans but all NBA and basketball fans alike. These two teams have a lot of history with one another when it comes to championship basketball. We all know to well about the clashes they had in the past so I dont need to talk about that. The Boston Celtics havent been in the Finals in two decades and that is by far depressing and the players they ave in the rosters are very hungry and very talented and again, very hungry!. Lets look at the matchups they had this season; The lakers have lost twice to Boston this season by double digit numbers and with that said there was no Pau Gasol who is now the second leading scorer behind the MVP Kobe Bryant. The Lakers now has a potent offense who can score 100+ points in a game. The Lakers defense is ground braking in myopinion so I think they can now contend with the Boston Celtics in both home and road games in this finals series. Boston Celtics had been dominant this whole season and they have one of the most talented roster in the NBA today. Kevin Garnett is a powerful forward who has a very potent defensive player skills as well as a good jumper where he can do a lot of damage, Paul Pierce is just awesome on both side of the court. Ray Allen has been cold throughout the playoffs and seems like he is starting to pick up his game and with the help of Perkins in the center court and the young point guard they have, they are a complete team. Matching these two teams up is very interesting but I think the Boston Celtics still have the upper edge by at least 8 points on the board because they are just so energetic and they can shoot a lot of basketball. Overall the series will be great and I am hoping for a 7 game series and my wish just might come true but we will see starting Thursday.
