#8 Oklahoma City Thunder @ #1 LA Lakers

Right now we're all talking about Kobe vs LeBron, but 5 years from now we'll be talking about the Thunder.
Longtime GSoMers root for the Thunder.
Prediction: Lakers by 1.
#7 Charlotte Bobcats @ #2 Orlando Magic
2:30pm PST | TNT
I'll cheer for these two former Golden State Warriors over Captain Jack--- anyday.
Mickael Pietrus FTW.
Prediction: Magic by 6
5pm PST | TNT
Without the golden crowd the Mavs have a real shot at winning it all.
Is it just me or do these guys meet up in the playoffs every single season? This could be one of the NBA's all-time greatest rivalries if the Snores weren't so boring.
Prediction: Mavs by 3
#6 Portland Trailblazers @ #3 Phoenix Suns
