First off, I think Lebron's great for the league, he has many bright moments ahead of him, and that last playoff series was incredible (the best part of the NBA season behind the Warriors all-too-brief run in the playoffs). That being said, I really do not think the Cavs stand a chance against this Spurs team. Not a knock on Lebron whatsoever, but I think getting this far with the supporting cast and coaching staff that he has is truly a miracle. Shoot, two more miracles and he has a shot at becoming Saint Lebron one day instead of just King Lebron. But, as with most miracles and good things in life, they must come to an end. Still, I will be pulling for the Cavs along with the rest of the NBA fans that still have a soul and can barely stand hearing Bruce Bowen's name called out at the start of an NBA finals game. Popovich, can you please start Finley and Ginobli just so there's still some semblance of good in the world? And to say that for Ginobli is a stretch - I can't help but think that if Lebron looks like he's going to win the series in Game 7 that Ginobli is going to start cursing out his sister in Italian a la Materazzi and just hope and pray that Lebron pulls a Zidane and gets booted (and yes, I realize that Ginobli is Argentinian but I'm pretty sure he has dual citizenship with Italy as well - sneaky devil...).
The Cavs problem is just so apparent, they are completely one-dimensional and if you think "Boobie" Gibson there is going to put up 31 points on 9 shots again, it's just not going to happen. Speaking of which, don't you kind of get the feeling that this "Boobie" nickname is the Cavs' way of pulling a joke on Craig Seger and all these lame media personalities they constantly have to kiss up to. I guarantee that when the Cavs get home and watch the replays they are snickering every time they get Ernie Johnson to say the word "boobie" on national television. I know I would be... But, the point is that the Spurs have too many weapons for the Cavs to handle and a good coach in Popovich who will make any adjustments if the Bruce Bowen/Aggravated Assault defense on Lebron doesn't work. Plus, Tony Parker is probably so desperate from his reported playoff sex ban from Eva Longoria that the Sacha Baron Cohen/Will Ferrell kiss from the MTV Movie Awards got him turned on. You know he's motivated. (We do realize Longoria said that the sex ban was a joke, but does it really seem that far out of character? Question: If Tony went ARod on her at this point, would anyone even blink?)
Gotta go with the Spurs finishing in 6 and Tony Parker finishing in about 1 minute and 30 seconds later that night...
