as a Suns fan, i believe they will. they've been edged out for one reason or another the last couple years, but they definitely deserve it. i'm only disappointed that Marion won't be a part of it if they do.
Now that the Mavericks are out (and early like last year), I'm looking forward to the upcoming semifinals and conference finals in the West. Hornets and Spurs: Come on, that HAS to be exciting. Though, I'd love to see a Hornets and Suns matchup too.
Im curious who Dallas will hire to replace Avery Johnson though. We need a freakin' title already.
I wanted the Magic to win, but they were elminated, so I am pulling for the Celtics to win.

Well it looks like Boston was able to finish the series in 6 games. It's hard to not give Boston what they deserve after watching the Lakers lose a 20+ lead in the series and then completely fall apart last night. Props, Boston, props.
I really hate being a sports fan around this time of the year. No football and no basketball, only baseball. I cannot stand baseball so I can only look forward to the start of the football season for now.
Maybe if the teams strengths and weaknesses were explained for those non USA people, we might understand... so far as I can tell, some teams arent the favourites as they're repeated world champs, and there's a team called "The Lakers"
I really wish I understood the NBA... It sounds fascinating.
The NBA stands for National Basketball Association so it is our basketball league here in the USA. We also have a Toronto, Canada team in the league, despite the rest of the teams being from the US. Anyway, the Lakers are from Los Angeles and the Celtics, despite the name, are from Boston. I'm not sure if the UK has a basketball league since soccer/football is so big over there. I don't know why basketball never seemed to catch on like it did over here. Was there no coverage of the NBA finals over there?
