Is it destiny? The matchup to face in the Finals?

The star matchup has been talked about in the past and it has a possibility of happening this year. The star matchup I'm talking about is of course Durant/James. This would be considered by some as a dream NBA Finals matchup. We had Jordan/Drexler. This generation we could have Durant/James. What do you think? Is it destiny?

Memphis vs Thunder preview West Semis

The series can be debated on who the favorites are. Memphis simply for beating the Spurs. The best team in the Western Conference was a bit of a shocker. Especially in just 5 games. Thunder simply because homecourt and great group of guys. I think the Thunder should be the favorite and they are in my opinion. They got the best player overall and their team is a higher seed.  They are of course everyones pick as a sleeper. The X factor in the series will be Mike Conley. Both his defensive and offensive game will play a huge factor in the series. Westbrook is an elite point guard in my eyes. I like him in the matchup of course. Who is gonna guard Durant? I don't think Young can stop him. Durant is gonna get his points in this series. Guys are gonna have to step up defensively in this series. The matchup I'm looking forward to though is gonna also play a huge factor: Ibake vs Randolph. Randolph had a pretty solid series vs the Spurs, but now he is facing Ibaka, who played pretty well himself. He looked dominant defensively vs the Nuggets. It won't be easy for either. It should be a good challenge for both players. I like the Thunder in this one in 6.

I hate Lebron James.....why? Many reasons

Heat fans just don't get it. I have explained to you several times about this. I disliked LeBron James long before he made "the decision". I rooted against them every single game when he was on the Cavs. Do the same thing with the Heat now. I criticize James for a bunch of reasons. One I don't think he deserved his first MVP award.....I thought D-Wade was the MVP that year. Another reason I hate James......the guy never gets called for fouls like my favorite player Dwight Howard. Howard gets called for more fouls than probably any star in the NBA. Lebron gets the best superstar treatment of any NBA star in the league. In the East Finals the refs were against the Magic. Even people on these boards agreed with that. The infamous foul Lebron shooting the 3 and Dwight got a clean block and called a foul on it. Youtube it my friend clean ball.

Lebron also showed no sportsmanship after the game. Every single year the supporting cast was criticized. Not James at all. It was never James fault for a loss. It was either supporting cast or the coach. No blame for James. He is constantly praised. More ESPN coverage than Brett Favre. It at least feels that way anyway. Every team he is on they are always chose as the favorite. They never win despite all the talent they bring in. Kobe/James commercial favoriting him to have that matchup. How much more biased do you need to be? They bring in guys like Ben Wallace, Jamison, and Shaq. Still can't get it done. Win a ring for the King bs. Gilbert did everything he could to make James happy. Some feel he quit on the team in the playoffs. The guy loves the spotlight a bit too much.

Go into the summer.....he was more talked about than the NBA Conference Final games. Which is a slap to the face to everybody who is still playing. He is praised all the time for his defensive ability. I made a post about a year ago stating his defense isn't as good as the stats show. Which I thought was very true. All the blocks come against guards going up for layups or from a player who is being guarded by another player. I seen times in the playoffs he would guard the guards rather than the forwards. When he faces a guy like Melo the guy gives up 40. When you face an above avg scorer it isn't so easy is it? Melo is basically at one time the best small forward besides Lebron. Durant has emerged. Never really seen them play each other.

In any case he gets everyone talking about him in the summer. The guy is treated like a super hero/King. He is an arrogant ego maniac. I absolutely hate the guy. He comes on announcing his decision date to decide what team he is going to. ESPN was so annoying all day long. We got a big tribute show for Lebron. I mean it was every hour. It lasted like all week it felt like at least. We heard all the predictions and what not. The day of the thing hear about Wade and Bosh wishing him luck and so on. I was so annoyed by the coverage I was ready to turn the channel before he made it. He finally made it and decided to take his talents to South Beach. Getting all the questions out and what not. Than we get the aftermath coverage that lasts for days. Cav fans burning his jerseys and so on. Of course the Heat were the favorites like every year.

His team previously had the best regular season record in the NBA past two seasons. The talent was there in my opinion anyway. He shows no respect to his former teammates nor his former team. His arrogance will not lead him to a championship. Hope he never wins a thing. He is a piece of garbage. Spits in the way of everybodys accomplishments. Especially the scoring title that was won by Durant. Oh I could have won that if I wanted it. How much of a slap in the face is that? Disrespectful idiot. Than he goes on in interviews like we arn't gonna win one, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or even 7. We are gonna have a dynasty. Him and the so-called three Kings slapping every single NBA team in the face. Acting as if he along with them are better than everyone in the NBA. He expects not to be criticized? Look at these messages from my twitter page. Being superstar isn't all fun. You get payed more money than all those hateful people sent you. I'm sure all those millions of dollars he makes can cure his feelings. No good piece of garbage. Hate his guts. Go cry me a river James. You make more money in a year than any of us make in a lifetime. You don't want to be criticized don't act like you are all that. Don't disrespect former teammates and other teams in the NBA. You are not gonna be given a championship on a silver platter. You gotta work hard for it. Cavs did everything for you and you spit in their face. Refs try their best to give you a championship and you still can't get one. Hope you never do. That will be the worst thing that could ever happen in the NBA. No good piece of crap. Cry to someone who cares. Everyone is criticized. I am as well, but I would rather be criticized and be making the money he is making. Get all the fame with it as well. One of the most praised pieces of crap and still cries about it.

West conference playoff seed predictions 2010-11

Shoulda did this sooner, but really didn't have the time. In any case here is my 2010-11 Western Conference playoff seed predictions!!

1.LA Lakers-Best bench and arguably the best starting five in the league. They are more motivated than ever to make history. 12 NBA titles for Phil Jackson along with a 4th three peat of his coaching career. Kobe going for his sixth ring to tie in some fans opinions the best player to ever play the game Michael Jordan. LA Lakers to tie with most NBA championships won by a team with Boston at 17. So much history not to bank the number 1 seed. They are playing too well right now without Kobe being 100%. Which more than not now days he is injured. Bynum 100% won't matter!

2.OKC Thunder-To me the biggest threat to the reigning NBA champs to get back to the Finals. With Durant being consistant along with being so young I figure this team will be a force in the West and in the NBA years to come after Kobe hangs up his sneakers. The team plays some great defense and they are so unselfish. Maybe because they are young team, but I see great things with this team. I predict they face LA no matter if they are number 2 sometime in the playoffs.

3.New Orleans Hornets-I wouldn't have predicted them to be this high in my predictions til I saw them play....I did predict playoffs o on some post before the season began. If Paul is healthy I don't see why not. Okafor has got to stay consistant and play at the high level he has thus far in the season. Very impressed by his play thus far. Paul is my pick for MVP. Will he be in NO next year? It probably depends on their success in the playoffs.

4.Phoenix Suns-Very good ball team despite the departure of Amare. With Steve Nash playing at the high level as he is year after year I think they have a good chance of giving the Lakers a run like they did last year. Don't think they will knock them out of the playoffs, but will certainly make it a series.

5.SA Spurs-the team may be old, but they have the experience in the playoffs and winning championships. Jefferson acquistion didn't work out as well as one thought. In any case they are still a great basketball team that will have some success in the playoffs. Staying healthy will be key for this team. It could hurt their seed, but they are no push over by any means.

6.Dallas Mavericks-I think they are a bit over-rated. They were the top pick to upset the Lakers last season and of course it didn't happen. Don't think they will make a run in the playoffs. I rather believe they will end up with a disappointing season.

7.Portland Trailblazers-Very good ball team with Roy leading the way. Camby stays healthy I don't see why they can't make the playoffs. Like this young fast paced team.

8.Golden State Warriors-The surprise team to make the playoffs!! Curry and Ellis is a good combo. I figure Melo will be traded and an injury to a Jazz player will end their playoff chances. That is why Warriors will make the playoffs.

That is my 2010-11 Western Conference playoff seed predictions!! What are your predictions?

Top 5 NBA teams 2010-11 season

1.LA Lakers-starting 5 is arguably the best in the league today. Reigning NBA champs going for a 3peat. Bench is very strong this year.

2.Boston Celtics-starting 5 looks very strong......arguably the best starting 5 as well. Bench is still at question at this point. At least at the shooting guard/sf position. Like the additions of Shaq and Jermaine during the off-season. Perkins will be returning in February I believe.

3.OKC Thunder-Very good young and talented team. One of the favs to knock off LA. To me they are the best team in the West with the exception of the Lakers of course. Durant is one of the top candidates to win the MVP.

4.Miami Heat-2 superstars and the rest of role players. Medias fav to win the NBA championship.

5.Orlando Magic-Despite the loss to Miami I believe they can get back to form. Hopefully make a trade before the deadline. Hoping for Melo. Need a consistant scorer. Wouldn't be sad with CP3 either. Dwight Howard is improving his offensive game. Dominant on the defensive end looking for his 3rd straight defensive player of the year award.
