predictions for the season
Time to put your thinking caps on and pick the conference semi-finalists, finalists and the NBA champions.
I pick Miami to beat Chicago in the Eastern semis, with Indiana as most likely to cause an upset.
Lakers to beat Oklahoma in the Western semis.
There's a big gap between those teams and the rest. (Sorry, Clippers, Spurs or Knicks - I just can't see you guys as smokies.)
Oh, yeah - Miami to be the NBA champions.
