It is too late for me to prognosticate the Spurs vs the Pistons in the NBA finals? Yes, it true. It has been my belief from the start. I said at the season's offset that Detroit's championship was a good thing for the NBA. Watching the Lakers spank the eastern conference champion each year suxs for ratings.
But out of the Lakers ashes a pheonix was born. The sudden rise of the Suns had to be a welcome surprise to the NBA. Could this style of basketball really win a championship? Alas, this is not the NFL where rags to riches stories are commonplace. It takes defense to win in the playoffs and the last team standing is rarely a surprise. That's why I see San Antonio and Detroit in the finals. If either team wins another championship no one will be shocked.
