Nobody is beating the Lakers, barring injury. There is no team in the history of the NBA that could beat this team.

lol, three of the 4 stars are past their prime, two are well past. I'd take the 86 Celtics or 87 Lakers or the 92 Bulls over this Lakers squad and not even think twice. I'm not even sure how much of a favorite they are over OKC in what will be an EPIC western conf finals.

I would take the '12 or '13 Heat.

Just not being a homer. Obviously, you would pick the Heat team that will have Ray Allen.

That's because you started watching basketball a few months ago.

The Lakers are a hell of a team this year but if you remember the Malone+Payton experiment it doesn't always work out the way you think.

I agreed with an assessment from ESPN that said Lakers are probably most likely team to beat the Heat. However, OKC matches up better against LA than they do against the Heat. Bit of a paper, rocks, scissors thing going.

Dwight and Gasol is going to kill Bosh + <not very good big> but won't dominate Ibaka, Perkins, Collison the same way

On offense, maybe (though Lebron can guard Gasol). What are they going to do on defense? Will we get to watch Gasol stand out by the three point line to guard Battier? It's a pretty fascinating matchup.
