10. Byron Scott knows the players from LA very well. He will be able to devise good defensive schemes.

9. Jason Kidd has the ablity to make everyone around him better.

8. Kidd's ability to dominate a game without scoring many points.

7. Kobe will take one game to show the whole world that no one can guard him and he'll stop passing the ball to Shaq.

6. Shaq's the best player in our solar system but I do not think he can keep making his free throws.

5. New Jersey will put too much pressure on LA's transition defense, causing them foul trouble.

4. The Nets have a heart the size of planet Earth.

3. New Jersey's team defense.

2. Byron Scott makes great adjustments after each game to enhance his team defensively.

1. NJ's ability to push the ball is the number one reason they can beat LA.
