Brief SportsProf Prediction for the NBA Finals

I suppose that given SportsProf's record of predicting games, they don't want to hear this in Los Angeles, but SportsProf believes that despite the clutch play of Rip Hamilton, the grit of Ben Wallace, the savvy of Rasheed Wallace and the overall solid play of Chauncey Billups, not to mention the coaching of Larry Brown, that the Los Angeles Lakers will defeat Detroit in 6 games to win the NBA title.

Phil Jackson will get his 10th title, and the debate will rage as to whether he's the best coach in professional sports, ever.

Wonder if Red Auerbach will send the Zenmaster a box of Montecristos (or is it Macanudos) to celebrate this accomplishment.

Reason for the prediction: the tag-team of O'Neal and Bryant will prove too tough for Detroit. Now, again, that's going out on a limb, isn't it?
