totally agree with the top 2, but lakers/magic? if courtney lee hits that gw layup in la at the end of game 2, it's 1-1 with 3 straight games in orlando. if the magic won, he never wouldve been traded, wouldve had a productive career... is that not enough drama for you?

also, i liked heat/okc because i hate okc

Well, I'll admit, had the Magic pulled off the upset I might've liked it a little more. ;)

so where does this year's finals rank for you? does it make any of the lists? even though the heat won, you have to admit it was very entertaining with teams alternating wins, close games, and overtime

It's not among my favourites, I can't put it over any in the top five or the five honourable mentions that round out my top ten. Possibly somewhere in my top twenty; even if it wasn't the result I was hoping for, I wouldn't rank it among my least favourite. So yeah, I'll say somewhere in my Top 20 for now, definitely not Top 10 though.

Agree on most of them. '94 Rockets-Knicks was pretty meh. I did enjoy '95 Rockets/Magic series better even though was a blow out, but hard to get great series when sweep. '96 to '98 was good even if the desired results in '97 & '98 did not eventuate. '00 Lakers/Pacers was good but didn't care much for series from '01 to say '05. Was good to see Dallas make '06 Finals but refs really screwed over Mavs (even if I'll admit Wade was best Finals performance I'd seen). '07 was meh. '08 Lakers/Celtics was good for league, even if '09 was average. '10 wasn't as good as '08 as far as quality, really Cavs were beater than Celtics & may have beaten lakers. '11 to '13 have been good though.

I'm still pretty OK with the way things turned out. ;)
