    Reading fail. I voted as if it was about who I wanted to win.

    I now would have voted Miami, Chicago, and LA.
    Bad day? It's your site and it says 'change your vote' at the bottom of the poll.

    Following that thought, did you root against Pacers when he was on the team?
    well, i had no problem with Peja before he was on the Pacers...it's his sitting out of the playoff games b/c of some minor injury that made me dislike him...also i was an artest fan, so that probably influenced my view of him too...

    Bulls are probably the only team that I absolutely don't want to see win. I don't feel completely one way about the rest of the teams.

    Oops. I read the poll wrong. Now I feel like a big dummy head.

    I want Dallas to win for sure. I always have liked Dirk, Kidd, and Peja.
    I voted for the Lakers as the team I don't want to win. I've hated them ever since the 2000 Finals.

    I don't know how anyone isn't repulsed by the Lakers.

    I dislike many of the remaining teams, but I don't care who wins the championship as long as it's not the Lakers.

    NO lakers, NO bulls, NO celtics. Like thers have said, they've had theirs.

    I would love to see OKC or Dallas from the west and Miami and Atl from the east.

    I want OKC or Dallas to win it all, but I wouldn't be disappointed if Miami did either. I think the amount of unwarranted hate they get makes me root for them.

    I hope Miami and Atlanta play in the eastern conf. finals and OKC and Dallas play in the western conf. finals.
    If OKC makes it out of the west, then I will root for them, otherwise I will root for who ever makes it out of the east.

    I'm rooting for the Grizzlies, but realistically, the Thunder will probably win the series. Both are likable teams so I'm happy for whoever wins.

    I just can't see how someone could claim that Miami is buying titles here. You could much easier make that argument with LA or Dallas. LeBron & co signed there to win and maybe to hang around with friends. Not because Miami was the highest bidder.
    I don't like the fact that LA & Dallas have such bloated salaries, but I suppose the $1-for-$1 tax tries to address that issue.

    However, my argument about Miami is more holistic: I fundamentally recoil at their overall strategy to wipe the slate clean, salary-wise, and then go out and buy an entire team of free agents all at once. Teams like Miami and New York can do that because of location (marketing opportunities, climate, nightlife, etc.). Indiana and most other teams do not have that option ... and I would gag (out of we-drafted-him loyalty principles) even if we could.

    I never had an issue with the Lakers(well except in 2000 of course) they have always been an interesting team to watch through the years and well namely despite my disdain for Phil(who doesn't bother me now as much as he did on the Bulls) and Artest(you really shouldn't have to ask why) I still have no issue with rooting for the Lakers.

    Kobe is also one of my favorite players and I'm all for him getting more rings than Jordan if possible.

    I find all the Miami hate hilarious. Honestly they are the team I am rooting for now. OKC is a close second though.

    I agree mostly, but I still like OKC better.

    I don't want Miami because of the Douche Triumverate, and I'd rather not Chicago because A.) they knocked us out and B.) I'm growing to strongly dislike Derrick Rose.

    I like D. Rose as a person and as a player , but I absolutely DETEST him as competition.. He is absolutely tough, can put a team on his back if need be, and has a killer instinct in crunchtime.. I guess in that aspect, I hate/like him exactly like I did Michael Jordan.. (NOTE: I'm not comparing him to MJ basketball-wise)


    The only good thing that would come out of ChI winning it all, is knowing that they were the ones that knocked us out, but that we absolutely took it to them and made them EARN IT.. Other than that I can understand the feeling of not wanting them to win.. Me, I am indifferent to it either way..



    I don't want Miami , Lakers nor Boston to win it all.. If Boston won , I'd just be glad it wasnt Lakers or Miami .. lol .. the lesser of the 3 evils ..if you will.. lmao


    There are however a few teams that are still in the playoffs, whom I'd like to see win the championship..

    Dallas .. I'd like to see Dirk FINALLY get a ring, I think he deserves it..

    OKC .. I like Durant , and this team has been fun to watch over last few years. IT would be nice to see this young team do well..

    Memphis .. The underdogs , this team has been dangerous in the playoffs thus far.. plus this is the 1st time that Memphis has made it out of the 1st round ...... EVER! ..Gotta love Z-Bo averaging like 26 and 12, or close to.. while playing like a superstar..

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    I want to see them get to the Finals because it will be very entertaining to see them play whoever comes out of the West.

    If it becomes LA-MIA, I can just see the story lines already:
    "Kobe takes down the King of South Beach and his royal friends to cement his place in history"
    or
    "The King stomps down the Black Mamba on way to first ring"

    If it became OKC-MIA, then the story lines would definitely be about how the two teams are both great but built completely differently.

    Honest question: Does Dirk have another gear? It seems as though Dirk is ol'-Mr.-Reliable in terms of consistent plug-away excellence. He's proven durable and remarkably consistent. But does he have another gear? In the white-hot intensity of crunch time in the playoffs, does Dirk have the ability to "go nuclear"?

    This sums up my opinion. I would just add that I also would like to see Dallas win for Mark Cuban. Love him or hate him, he is an interesting owner and I think the league is better for having him.

    Dirk's been the best player so far during the playoffs. He's been absolutely killing teams in the 4th quarter. Isn't that another gear?
