“Let’s not act like the Nuggets aren’t a good team & if the Lakers were to beat them that they got a free pass. They just beat the team that everyone said was going to win the title. Give the Nuggets their credit.”

.@ZachLowe_NBA calls the idea of a red carpet being rolled out for LeBron to make the Finals, “1,000% nonsense.”
“Do the Nuggets look like a red carpet to you?! They are a half-Serbian, half-Canadian brick wall waiting in your way.” pic.twitter.com/2e4cFDcQGi

The Nuggets will win some games against the Lakers. I’m not sure yet if it will be four.
Who will LeBron make better? Who will Jokic make better? Benches will really matter.
I do know I really hate the Lakers still!!!
