Battle Between Good and Evil: 2011 NBA Finals Predictions

Posted: May 31, 2011 by Keith Stone in basketball, NBA, NBA Finals, NBA Playoffs

This is bigger than basketball. This is biblical stuff. This is Hulk Hogan vs. Sgt. Slaughter at WrestleMania VII. This is every game you played when you were a kid. Cops and robbers. Good guys and bad guys. A team seeking redemption for five years of failure against a team that came together for all the wrong reasons. Pride and vengeance against glitz and ego. Rory and Roro join me after we nailed both Conference Finals Series. Who ya got?

Roro’s take: My faith has never wavered.  If anything, I was too nice to the opposition.  This series won’t be any different as the Mavs have not faced a defense this good.
Roro’s pick: Heat in 5

Rory’s take: I said the Heat back in September, and even when they were down 1-0 versus the Bulls.  I’ve sided with evil, and I can’t back out now.
Rory’s pick: Heat in 6

Stone’s take: If there’s one thing I’ve learned from 21 years of watching basketball, it’s that a good team can overcome any obstacle. The Heat have two players. I still believe in fairytale endings.
Stone’s pick: Mavericks in 7
