Come talk finals! I can't be the only NBA fan in the house!

Who's gonna come out on top? The regular season MVP, or the regular season scoring champ? Will Lebron finally come through in the finals? Chris Bosh isn't starting, but can he have the same type of impact as he did in game 7 against Boston? Will DWade finally snap out of his funk?
