The Green Machine or the James Machine???

Sorry I haven't been posting in a couple of weeks now but life gets in the way sometimes, I'll do better.

With the series tied 2-2 going into Boston Wednesday evening who will come out victorious? The Green Machine of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen and the Boston Celtic or the other Machine, King James and his troops? Well the critics would say that the Celtics will be on the winning end of that evening especially since they are playing at Boston. But I will say, that if LeBron can get some offensive help then the King James train will upset the Celtics and their fans Wednesday night.

Needless to say this Cleveland and Boston series has been very entertaining to watch. Even when LeBron is having a bad shooting night he still looks good doing so. LeBron when having one of his under par nights is still better than well over half of the players in the NBA on their good nights. That's a fact... The Celtics have been able to subdue LeBron for the most part since the series has been underway but they won't be able to keep a good man down for long. LeBron has only scored a high 21 points in 3 of the 4 games he has played against Boston and the first game they played against Boston he was only able to muster up 12 points. So that being said, LeBron is well under his season average of 30 points per game. But like I said, Boston won't be able to keep a good man down for long. LeBron will reach his 30 point season average and probably more before this series is finished and Boston better watch out when that happens.

Now do I believe that the Cleveland Cavaliers will win the series against the Boston Celtics? The answer to my own question is, not a chance. Only because the Cavaliers do not have the supporting cast that the Celtics have. It's LeBron James and the rest of the team for the Cavaliers verses Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and the rest of the team for the Celtics. So really that's a no brainer on which team will eventually prevail in the end. Plus the fact that the Boston Celtics will be able to play game 7 at home if the series is played out to it's entirety.

But who knows, there could be an upset brewing in the 2008 NBA playoffs this year. We will just have to wait and see...

The three other playoff games are well underway also. The Lakers and Jazz, and the Hornets and Spurs series, are also tied 2-2 while the Detroit Pistons have a demanding lead against the Orlando Magic 3-1.

All in all the playoffs this year have been very good. My prediction for the 2008 NBA Championship game will have to be the Boston Celtics verses the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics will win the Championship this year in 7 games. It will be tough for the Celtics though.

Boston Celtics 2008 NBA Champions!!!

There you have it. Will I be right about that? Only time will tell...
Have fun watching the playoffs!

Until my next post, thanks for reading, and keep sports on your mind.
