    I would like to see Miami to win Finals. But, I believe Dallas will win it all in 6.

    Just to be contrary, I'll pick Miami in 6. :)

    In reality, I don't think they have a :praying: of winning.

    Dallas in 7, but I am very nervous about Dallas' prospects. Shaq and Wade are both playing unbelievable ball lately - they destroyed Detroit.

    Update --

    D-Wade missed practice yesterday due to the flu (which he played with in Game 6 against Detroit). Miami needs him back at full strength against Dallas to have a prayer :praying: . Also, Payton missed yesterday's practice too.

    Wade could probably miss a couple of weeks and it would not slow him down.:smilewinkgrin: I still believe it will be Dallas in five. But I do give Riley the coaching edge.

    Shaq at center and Wade at point everything else including bench is all Dallas.

    The Heat do not have an answer for Dirk and Howard. Those 2 matchups are going to kill the Heat.

    While Dallas has some bodies they can throw at Shaq and some athletic guys that can slow Wade down some.

    To me that will be the reason why Dallas wins.

    Good point SBC

    Look for Howard to cover Wade at least part of time AKA howard-Nash and Pippen-Magic. Tall, lean and quick can creat some real problems.

    Perhaps Saunders should have tried Prince on Wade?

    I don't like teams from Texas and Florida in any sport whatsoever. This is the worst finals ever for me. I really don't like the Heat though because of Pat Riley (a spoiled look-at-me-I-a-great-coach) and Shaq (a big fat cry baby who thinks he's the greatest center to ever play the game).

    I will have to go with Dallas in 5

    A negative opinion of Shaq wins you my brownie points. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :praise:

    Yes, but O'Neal has something to show to the world, that he doesn't need Kobe to win a championship. I also like the Pat Riley factor, along with Wade and a solid veteran team.

    At this point of the season, everyone is on a mission and has something to prove. Dallas just has too many horses for the Heat.

    I have always loved shaq - big, unstoppable, great basketball IQ and funny as well - I think when you start naming the top centers of all time in the NBA shaq falls into the top two or three. I think shaq eats kareems lunch, is better offensively than russell, walton - I dont think so. Only Wilt was better in my opinion.

    When you start naming the top ds in the league - dont forget about dallas and san antonio. there are not many teams that could have shut the suns down as well as the mavs did

    At the very least Shaq is in the top 5 centers of all time.

    I am wondering how long do the NBA playoffs and NBA Championship last?

    The NBA playoffs have lasted this long since 1984 when they went to 8 teams per conference.

    Is there a point to your repeated questions about this?
