Ranking the last 25 NBA Finals matchups

#25 - LAKERS VS NETS (2002):  To me, this was the worst Finals.  It wasn't just that this was a sweep (though it factors), it is just that this series felt like a formality while you were watching it.  Sure, three of the games were close, but it just didn't feel like the Lakers even took this series seriously.  #24 - PISTONS VS LAKERS (1989):  This should have been epic...

Byron Scott on Firing: “I don’t Think I got a Fair Shake”

  I agree with Byron Scott to a point; after Lebron James’ exodus from Cleveland, he was given the near impossible task of turning a very young Cavaliers team that didn’t and to a degree still doesn’t possess a whole lot of talent, into something resembling a playoff team. It’s difficult to win in the NBA when the majority of the minutes on your team is going to first and...
