    it's weird that the nba finals are on during the NFL and college football

    I want the Heat to win, but I like watching football during football season. Plus the LeBron/Laker love fest is not what I want to see and hear .

    It's also clear that Miami is the team to root for
    if you aren't a Lakers fan

    I know the media will still talk about LeBron vs MJ, but it would be awesome if Miami gave him the L
    and they will shut up about this boring ass topic

    Currently the lakers are heavy betting favorites to win the title... opening at -358 to win. The heat open at +300 to win the series.

    Will be interesting to see how many experts pick the heat for the upset. My upset pick of heat in 6 is +1200 right now.

    I’ve already warned all of my friends rooting for Miami to prepare for egregious and atrociously lopsided officiating.

    Every 50/50 call will go in LA’s favor. We all know this. If Miami is going to win, they’re going to have to win in spite of the inconsistent and LA friendly whistles. Expect Bam to be in foul trouble frequently.

    Sadly, I’m predicting another gentlemen’s sweep for LA. The games will be close, but beating both LeBron the player and referee intimidator will be too much for Miami, IMO.

    No worries, just a little bet to make it interesting. Spending a hundred isn't a bad deal if it makes things more entertaining.

    Let's make this clear, everything is written for the Lakers to win ever since Kobe died. It's too good of a story. Still, please may the Heat win. I cannot stand Dwight winning a ring and the Lakers as a team with the help of the referees. Rather have a hard worker like Butler, Dragic and a band of all these unsung heroes to win a title.

    I think the Heat are the better team, but if the refs take Bam out of the game like they did to Joker, expect another cake walk for the Lakers.

    Voted Miami in 6 out of pure spite for the Fakers.
    Inb4 Bam gets into early foul trouble and AD and LeBum go to the line 50 times a game.

    I want JB to win a ring and Lakers to lose. The latter more than the former. Can't stand the Lakers. Even when they sucked I couldn't stand them.

    At least it doesn't have random, unrelated elements shoved in random, unrelated places.

    Miami can beat the Lakers. I hope the refs give them the chance.
