    Brain says LA in 6. Heart says Miami in 7. Adebayo vs AD should be fun. Meanwhile, the Heat can throw Butler, Crowder and Iggy at LeBron.

    I think LeBron gets the MVP. He averages about as many points as AD while getting more rebounds and assists.

    This is the most spread out team, in terms of talent, that the Lakers will have faced all playoffs.

    Blazers and Rockets were top-heavy with their teams. Nuggets had 2 stars and depth, but it feels like Miami has a better team overall than the Nuggets.

    Go Heat but they probably need to go 5 on 8.

    Lebron gets caught for PED, and is suspended for series. Small chance NBA goes public if he's caught, but i'm speaking it into existence.

    Lakers in 6. Think Rondo is about to show out, similar to what Jimmy's done for the Heat thus far.

    It will be interesting to see if the Lakers can shut down the Auxilary players
    Rondo v Herro
    Green v Robinson
    Dwight/McGee v Bam

    I favor the lakers but will be picking heat in 6.

    Lakers have the two best players but I think the Butler and bam are just about the best antidote to LeBron and AD.

    Two reasons I'm picking the heat.

    Heats defense. The lakers have been an average to poor shooting all season and the heats zone and players are long athletic and perfectly suited to pack the paint against LeBron/Davis and rotate.

    2nd reason and most important, I'm betting heats "others" will play better than the lakers "others". I don't believe pope, rondo, and kuzma will shoot or perform like they have been.

    Don't know if you'd count him as an "auxilary" player but don't forget about Dragic either. He's had his moments in these playoffs.

    Heat in 6.

    I think the heat are going to win. I just think they are the better overall team and I think they've played better teams in the playoffs and have just played better basketball as a whole.

    Heat in 6 or maybe 5.

    I don't think he is auxillary at all
    He and Jimmy are the primary cogs IMO
