Watch the above video for my reasoning.
And by the way, I am the only person on the SheridanHoops staff to pick Thunder in 5. For all of our staff’s picks, click here. (Disclaimer: The prediction business is a tricky one. I had Heat in 7 last round, but I also had Spurs in 5.)
And back in the day when I was with ESPN, I was the only guy who said there was only a 10 percent chance that LeBron James would re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. I had him taking his talents to South Beach, and so did John Hollinger. No one else on the ESPN.com staff was even close to correct with their picks.
If I was better at making predictions, believe me, I would not be running a Web site. I’d be a registered voter in the state of Nevada. So take my pick with a grain of salt. Do not take it to the bank.
