    Who should make and who should win the 2020 NBA Finals?

    The greatest thing about this NBA offseason is that I think there are two many possible answers to this question to just post a poll with three or four teams and "other". In the West, a case can be made for LAK, LAC, GSW, HOU, DEN, UTA, POR. In the East, I think a case can be made for MIL, PHI, BOS, TOR or IND. (I don't see BKN as being in the conversation until 2020-21 should KD come back healthy.)

    My head is happy, but my heart is sad with what Philly did. I had so much invested in last year's team, and knowing they were one quadruple dink away from being tied with the eventual winner, I really wanted to "run it back". McConnell is subpar, but he was such the heart of the team, I've listened to all of JJ's podcasts because he was a sixer (and he gets good guests and he's pretty good at it too), Boban was fun... it was just a really likable team. So I'm a bit heartbroken... and I'm not sure I have the energy to invest like I did last year.

    That said .... I think they are a better team now, and everyone else (except maybe Indiana) took a minor step back. I should be delighted .... and maybe I will be once the season starts. They really need 2 of Shake Milton, Zhaire Smith, and this year's draft pick Matisse Thybulle to step up and be useful roll-players. Otherwise, they look solid all around.

    I agree - and I think by Christmas your heart will catch up with your head. It's amazing what a couple months of winning can do.
    The Raptors are back to being a playoff team but not a contender for the finals, at least as the team sits now.
