The NBA Finals are here, and it’s a rematch from the previous season with San Antonio and Miami squaring off for all the marbles. Of the past six such rematches, only Michael Jordan’s Bulls were able to win both years. But if anyone else can duplicate the feat, it’s LeBron James and his loaded lineup. Of course, San Antonio can win just as easily. That fact made its way into our predictions, with our experts split as to who will win. However, most agree on a lengthy series, which would certainly be appropriate for something of this magnitude.
For the Finals, we’ve added the scoring category of choosing the Finals MVP, which was generally easy to choose for for either team that was picked to win. And in addition, all picks are doubled!
