Sports: Who will win this year's NBA championship?

The NBA 2010-2011 regular season is winding down and as the playoffs get closer the positioning battle for the TOP 8 teams and those that are in the 9th and 10th spot are tightening up. Questions are abound as to who will be this years NBA champions? Here are some of my takes on who are the legitimate contenders vying for the coveted Larry O’ Brien trophy.

Chicago – the team is smoking hot, but do they have what it takes to win it all?
Celtics – Experience will be a factor, but will their weary and veteran legs keep up with the likes of those with the HEAT and Chicago?
Heat – The Superfriends were on a rollercoaster ride all season albeit a bumpy ride, expectations are high for this team since joining forces together last off season. Is this the year for them to win their first ring as a trio? And a start of what could be multiple championships together?

How about in the west?

Spurs - Are they for real? I should say that they have a legitimate chance barring any setback or injuries with their own big three (Duncan, Ginobili and Parker).
Oklahoma – A very interesting team to watch, they might have an outside chance to crash the western conference party? but I'm sure that this is not yet the year for them.
Lakers – They have been on a roll since the all-star break, winning 13 out of 14 games. Will Kobe and company step it up a notch during the postseason and try to win their 3rd straight championship? And give Phil Jackson his 12th championship ring?

Well for now, its’ everybody's ballgame and as for your guess who wins this years cup? Your guess is as good as mine folks.
