It’s that time of year again… unfortunately both the Lakers and Clippers were eliminated earlier in the playoffs, leaving OKC, San Antonio, Boston, and Miami in the conference finals. I have my reasons why each of the aforementioned teams should not get a ring:
OKC – They’re just too damn young! I could consider Durant getting a ring in 2 years or so.
San Antonio – Do I really want Duncan to get 5 rings? That’s how many Kobe has… (granted, I will admit that Duncan is probably the greatest power forward of all time in the NBA)
Miami – LeBron. ‘Nuff said.
Boston – As a Laker fan, I am obliged to hate on them.
Another reason why Miami should not win is that it will set an unhealthy precedent for other teams – they will also start trying to buy their way to a championship by signing superstars rather than trying to develop actual team chemistry (anyone remember how the Lakers spectacularly imploded in ’03-’04?).
Anyway, may the best team win!
