Ummmm... possibly neither one. While the Lakers have had their issues, when it comes down to it, they have one of the best playoff-ready lineups in the NBA yet AGAIN. The Spurs will fall in the second round somewhere.
Possibly neither like adanny14 said, but if i had to choose i would say lakers, because of their way to always pull their selfs together when the playoffs hit.
And with their length that they have, when they are on their game it is hard to compete with them physicaly ( well for the teams in the western playoff picture right now)
Spurs. I disagree with u guys. They are the 2 best teams no doubt and unless the mavs have something to offer then i dont see any way that it wouldnt be spurs v lakers for the WCF
Spurs are not that hard to figure out tho, dont get me wrong they are good, and the record to prove it. But once playoffs come you will see them struggle a little..
The SPURS have the West already. But, playoffs are different, and it doesn't matter for the Lakers. They will perform and get it done. Kobe said himself that he's not worried about what's been happening, except the focus. It's happened before, and it happens when you repeat because you get complacent and bored with the long, tiring regular season.
But, come playoffs, Kobe's eyes will be on the prize, and he will rally his troops to the NBA Finals.
