NBA Finals Roundup

After seven long months, the NBA season has finally reached its epic conclusion with the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs battling it out to be crowned champion. It is a rematch of last year's NBA Finals, which turned out to be one of the all-time great series. Hopefully, this year turns out to be more of the same. I decided to round-up some the predictions from so-called "experts" to see who they thought would win. Oh, and I also threw in some other predictions as well.

ESPN.com San Antonio Spurs Using its prediction engine called "ESPN Forecast", the Worldwide Leader has chosen the Spurs. As we all know, ESPN has never been wrong.
Sports Illustrated San Antonio Spurs Another panel of experts for the Spurs (four of the six experts, at least).
TNT "Inside the NBA" Miami Heat How about an actual panel of previous NBA players? They seem to be leaning towards the Heat.
USA Today Split For the most part, USA Today seems to really represent the majority of those picking, split down the middle with a great case for both teams.
AccuScore San Antonio Spurs Accuscore simulates the series thousands of times to predict the outcome, and they have actually had a pretty good track record.
Vegas Oddsmakers San Antonio Spurs I'm always amazed at the people who set the betting lines in Vegas on how accurate they turn out to be. So, I'm probably trusting this prediction the most.
Flip of a Coin Miami Heat Of course, flipping a coin is the decisive way to decide something that is seemingly even matched and it has the Heat winning.
Rock-Paper-Scissors San Antonio Spurs Although some would argue that a game of RPS is a better way to decide a winner.
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe Miami Heat That being said, when you were a kid, EVERYTHING was decided with eeny, meeny, miny, moe.
Pick A Name From A Hat San Antonio Spurs Ok, well let's just pick a name out of a hat and be done with it. The Spurs are the choice.

Final Prediction: Who knows. This should be another great series between two great teams. Enjoy the series everybody!

While the NBA's Eastern Conference teams are still battling it out to see who will play in their conference finals, the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder made quick work in their second round series, setting the stage for a Spurs-Thunder Western Conference Finals match-up.

NBA Playoffs

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that these are the two teams in the west left standing, as they were the two best teams in the regular season and by far the two best in the postseason. The Spurs have yet to lose in these playoffs, sweeping both of their series, and they have now won a combined 18 games in a row behind veterans Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. The Thunder are playing in their second straight Western Conference Finals, losing last year to the eventual NBA champion Dallas Mavericks. The team features scoring champion Kevin Durant as well as Sixth Man of the Year Award winner James Harden.
