Mavericks - 12.7%
Celtics - 8.9%
Nets - 4.7%
Spurs - 3.2%
T Wolves - 3.1%

Total votes: 24,423


Heh, I like how the Celts are "favored" almost twice as much as the Nets ...

48.8% sounds like the Kings free throw percentage in big games.

You mean the Bulls didn't make it? They sweeped the Lakers in the season series last year. :)

David Aldridge has the Hornets doing it. As much as I love them, you are SO not going to win that bet.

I'm in agreement with the poll results in this case. Sacramento definitely has the best chance, in my opinion. Although I'd love to see the Pacers do it...
Oh, well, who knows. If Sacramento does become the team to beat the Lakers, maybe the Pacers will become the team who beats the team that beat the Lakers.

Wizards?! No way. they'll be pretty hot in a couple years or so, but not this year. I think Sacramento has the best shot.

I really was just being sarcastic about the Wizards and the NBA fixing games. But with the Wizards karma, Jordan will get hurt in the first minute of the season, Stackhouse will be Stackhouse, and the team will finish 30-52, mostly on the efforts of Juan Dixon.

Maybe I'm dumb...or overanxious, but I think an eye must be kept on that other team that plays in the Staples Center. They have a point guard now (Andre Miller), they're a year older, they're gonna be scary good real soon. They're gonna win 45+ this year and if they get into the playoffs, who knows what can happen. They don't have the playoff experience, but that doesn't always apply. I know I'm intrigued by them.

(Plus, THEY, and they alone, give me hope for the Bengals. If Elgin Baylor can suddenly get good at running a team, maybe Mike Brown can?)

The Clippers, once the laughing stock of Los Angeles, have improved by leaps and bounds. I think they'll be an even better team this year too. But they aint comin' close to beating the Lakers. PIease beIieve it.
