Predicto voters give the Cavs the edge in the race to sign the coveted free agent, with the New York Knicks following close behind.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 9, 2010 -
Through three games, NBA Finals viewers have been treated to an absolute slugfest between the league's two most storied franchises. Ironically, the Celtics and Lakers have also had to fight for attention, as sports columnists and basketball bloggers speculate about where LeBron James - this basketball season's biggest loser - will resume his pursuit of a championship ring. Even cell phone users are abuzz about King James, as members of polling sites like Predicto Mobile have been text messaging votes and comments on LeBron's options at nearly the same rate as they've weighed in on the Finals.
In fact, every rumor of a move the Cavaliers might make to retain their "king" has kept Cleveland in the spotlight as much as Boston or Los Angeles. More importantly, the team's carefully orchestrated overhaul may keep the hometown hero in Cleveland after all. Dismissals of Head Coach Mike Brown and GM Danny Ferry have given way to whispers that indicate Michigan State's illustrious Tom Izzo may be brought in to fill Brown's shoes. Would Izzo's expertise entice LeBron to stay? It's possible. Currently Predicto voters give the Cavs the edge in the race to sign the coveted free agent, with the New York Knicks following close behind.
Similar polls currently being voted on by Predicto members involve the futures of key NBA free agents such as Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki and Tracy McGrady. Even the Finals' two esteemed sideline wizards, L.A.'s Phil Jackson and Boston's Doc Rivers, could be on the move this summer, according to Predicto voting. Of course, the latter scenarios would necessarily be affected by who wins out in the best-of-seven battle for the Larry O'Brien championship trophy.
So just what do the prediction fanatics have to say about the only two teams left standing this season? Can Kobe Bryant's Lakers keep up their defensive intensity? Will Celtic sharpshooter Ray Allen bounce back from Game 3's 0-13 disappointment and regain the stellar form that produced Game 2's record-breaking 8 three-pointers? In spite of Paul Pierce's boast that Boston would end the series at home, 58% of the Predicto community think that L.A. will repeat as NBA Champs.
