2011 NBA Finals Predictions

Tonight is the night Lebron James and Dirk Nowitzki start the series that will make one of them an NBA Champion for the first time in their career. Dirk had his chance against a different Miami team in 2006, but came up short. This Miami team is better than the 2006 championship team, with the additions of Lebron James and Chris Bosh, but Dallas is no push over. Just ask Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers, to a man, they know they got beat….bad.

Miami has home court and is the favorite, but even friends of ours that like to dabble in the sports books won’t touch this series with a 10 foot pole. When asked, “Hey Jake, who do you have in this series?” He replied, “(exhale)…..I’m not going anywhere near this series”. If you know Jake, that is a shock. This is the kid that will bet you on a replay of an MLB game that he forgot the score of. That should tell you something. Both teams have great players as noted above, both teams have been hot all playoffs long and both could easily be the next NBA Finals Champions. You could make a case for either team, and that’s what makes it so hard to pick. It’s also the same thing that might make this one of the best NBA Finals we have ever seen.

So, the STOB crew grabbed a six pack, sat back and talked about who we think will win this anticipated series. We all went back and forth, changed our picks a time or two, but below are our final picks. You can vote on our poll and tell us what team you think will win. Maybe you have some inside info as to who will win.

NBA Finals Predictions:

Ken = Dallas in 6

Ben = Miami in 7

Derrick = Miami in 6

So, there you have it. You can email us your predictions or you can email us letting us know why our picks aren't smart. Contact us at sportstearsinourbeers@yahoo.com
