NBA prediction - Lakers and Celtics Round 2

Everybody wants to know who is going to be in the NBA finals come 2009 and whos' going to win it all. Lakers and Celtics again?
What else can be better for the NBA than to have two of the biggest NBA franchises from the East coast and the West coast renew their rivalry from the 80s. Bird and Johnson two decades later have been replaced by Kobe, Gasol, and Bynum VS. Garnett, Allen, and Pierce.
Remember last year the intensity Garnett, Pierce, and Allen showed hoping to win that first title. Now having won the title, I just hope they still have the same drive and hunger to repeat. Kobe still wants to prove to everyone that he can win a title without Shaq, and with a healthy Bynum and Gasol, they should be able to hold up their end of the bargain.
The season long and injuries aplenty. Disregarding outside factors such as injuries and ridiculous trades by Memphis, the two teams should be putting a huge grin on David Stern's face with another round of huge ratings from eyes across the globe.

Teams from the West hoping to dethrone the Lakers: San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets

Teams from the East hoping to dethrone the Celtics: Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers

As Garnett would say: AAAANYTHING IS POSSIBLLLLEEEE!!!!!!!

PS. Celtics in 6
