Poll: Assuming the Lakers make it to the 2011 NBA Finals, which team would you like them to face?

August 5, 2010 |  1:32 pm

Looking ahead to next June, we're all assuming the Lakers will advance out of the Western Conference, ready to take the final step toward another three-peat as NBA champions. Right?

The question is, who would you like to face the Lakers out of the East? Of course, two potential opponents leap to mind: the hated Boston Celtics (Kobe versus Shaq with everything on the line, the Lakers looking to tie Boston for most overall championships) and the hotshot Miami Heat (the two-time defending champs versus the so-called Big Three, the prospect of preventing King James from winning his first NBA title).

Vote, then leave a comment letting us know why you voted the way you did.
