LeBron off to Nu Yawk or Joyzee (just over the bridge or under the tunnel) ?
I'd say yes.
If he goes to the Knicks, watch the league grandfather in a LA-NY final.

The Vacation Destination series..... LA vs Orlando..... Disneyland vs Disney World..... Cali vs Florida..... Howard vs Kobe.... should be fun.
I think The magic are better than people give them credit for, I think this will be an awesome series, both teams have unbelievable players. I expect all the games to be somewhat close coming down the stretch, then you'll have Kobe Bryant and Rashard Lewis who I believe have been the most clutch players in the playoffs, these guys have laid it on the line for their teams more than any other players when they have needed them most, so it'll be interesting.
Or Maybe stern just realized the cavs and their inflated regular season-home record would not help them when they faced the only team in the east this year(the magic) that can compete with the lakers in a 7 game series.

Howard will eat Gasol & Odom for lunch. Bynum will need to lift his game for this to be an easy series for LA. LA has an advantage in the backcourt, the bench, & LA has this era's best player. Orlando has a frontline that can hang with LA.... but that's about it. LA in 6... 4-2.
I'm a bit fed up with something I have really noticed in this year's POs. They will let the little beotches from LA slap and harass the opponent like Farmar and Vaginavic just totally going "jilted lover" on opposing players without a fould being called, but Howard gets t'ed up for using his elbows to get people off of him.
I don't like it. I think the elbow should be legal if they're going to let opponents get "inside the kitchen." The player with the ball should be able to create some separation while also creating some risk for the defender. In other words, you can go for the steal, but I can defend my personal space.
I doubt they ever do like 2006 again where they out and out steal Games 3, 5, and 6 for the same team or even like Game 3 where they make 9 bad calls in the last 3 minutes for the winning team.
Wrong - Stern owns Disney stock - he's outsmarted you.
LeBron got no calls all series long.
Going to have to pull for the Magic in this one. Just can't support a rapist (errrr ALLEGED) and hope Houston's Lewis gets a ring.
I'll say this - our Region's D2 champion is probably the team to beat in rounds 5&6 - Good Knight
All I can say is, while we'll be at Jerry World next year, Katy will be nowhere to be seen and won't win R3 next year. They'll suck next year and mark my words! - SCBuffKnight
Fleabag and I better not cross paths or it is not gonna end nicely for him and I will need some bail money! I have not wanted to whoop someone's @ss this bad in a long, long time! - Clemensbuff
As for the non-foul/foul calls.....
There isn't one NBA player that thinks that he has EVER commited a foul. (or fan of that team, for that matter) The look of shock when somebody gets a call or doesn't, is priceless.
The only zebra crew I'll even begin to think has tampered with games, in this playoff, is Joey Crawfords crew. Other than that.... there has been missed calls.... but nothing so bad as what happened to the Kings or the Blazers earlier in the decade.
Lonny has done enough beotching for the Mavs... so I leave them out.
as for the stare downs and complaining after a call, the league really could control that...if they wanted to. that's a big turn-off for me and I feel like they're catering to the wrong element by allowing it to persist.
