The NBA is unique in that it has seen many dynasties from the Lakers in the 50’s, Celtics in 60’s, the Lakers and Celtics in the 80’s, the Bulls in the 90’s, and Lakers and Spurs in the 2000’s. There are few Cinderella stories in the NBA as the best usually rise to the top. The history of NBA Finals is rich in drama from Willis Reed to Michael Jordan.
NBA Finals Packages
The Los Angeles Lakers look to defend their title from 2010 by three-peating but they have some competition for the upcoming year. Miami Heat has reloaded, Orlando Magic are still strong, and the Boston Celtics are older but bigger. But before the Lakers can face one of them in the playoffs, they still have to fight their way through the much tougher Western Conference which had a record 9 teams finish above .500 last year, and the Memphis Grizzles 2 games from .500. With a NBA Finals package, you will be guaranteed to see the best basketball players in the world.
