We keep going back and forth on our pick to win the NBA title. Guess that means we’re as shaky as a $3 bill. Still, unlike last year, when we were within a Gregg Popovich brain cramp from cashing our little meager ticket in Vegas, we believe we’ve got a winner this time.
Three teams could win it all in our book, but none of them are named Thunder, Clippers, Rockets or Lakers. Oops, sorry Laker fans. What were we thinking?
Anyway, without further adieu.
Pacers over Hawks in 6; Bulls over Wizards in 7; Nets over Raptors in 7; and Heat over Bobcats in 5.
Pacers over Bulls in 6 and Heat over Nets in 6.
Heat over Pacers in 7.
Thunder over Grizzlies in 7; Clippers over Warriors in 6; Rockets over Blazers in 6; and Spurs over Mavs in 5.

The legendary former player, coach and awesome basketball mind passed Friday. He suffered a stroke last week. Sharman, who guided the 71 Lakers of Hall of Famers Wilt, Jerry West and Gail Goodrich to an NBA record 33 consecutive wins and an NBA title, was 87.

Excellent piece from our friends at the Sports Fan Journal about Chris Webber being taken as the No. 1 pick by the Orlando Magic. I can still remember being excited about the possibility of Webber and Shaq ruling the paint and the NBA. Of course it wasn’t meant to be.

Like the NCAA Tournament, some NBA player makes a name for himself during the playoffs. Stephen Curry, 1 of the best shooters we’ve ever watched and 1 who almost helped the Warriors stun the Nuggets today in Denver, could be 1 of those players. Writer Shaun Powell compiles a good list of some who might emerge. Another name we would add to it is San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard. He isn’t spectacular at anything but good at plenty of things.

The Heat are the overwhelming favorites to win the NBA title again, and why shouldn’t they be? We’re hard-headed though. Actually, we’re sticking with our betting slip.

We knew Laker fans would lower themselves to such things, but are you kidding us?
Although Laker fans are all giddy (hmmm, last time that’s happened?) with the No. 7 seed, do they really believe this squad is actually capable of anything in the NBA playoffs? Forgive us. I lost $5 to my old lady cuz I bet the Lakers wouldn’t make it, so maybe I’m a little bitter. And I surely forgot how the NBA sometimes figures into these things.
They don’t want to face my homies and the OKC Thunder. They want no part of that can of whip ass. Russell Westbrook again? Oh no, let’s take Timmy Duncan and his choir boy friends. Is that you T-Mac?
Some folks believe the Lakers are better off (is that you Magic Johnson?) making the playoffs instead of tanking for the lottery, like many of us dreamers gamble on everyday. But Dwight and the boys failing Kobe on the final night of the regulation…well the suicide hotline would have been working overtime.
The Lakers are 200-1 to win it all. Your point is?
We’re also pissed seeing the Spurs getting 8-1 since we bet them at 4-1. Someone trying to tell us something? Didn’t think so.

If you’ve got 30 minutes to spare, it’s a good interview with Phil, Jeanie, Shaq and Kurt Rambis.
