We are going to go with the Hornets and Lakers. If you read our blog or listen to our podcast sportstearsinourbeers.podbean.com or sportstearsinourbeers.blogspot.com you will see that one half of the STOB crew actually picked the Hornets to win in 7. I'm sticking with it. I think Kobe's injury is worse than some think and, like the Spurs, they just look old. I for one am happy to see some new teams stepping up and making things interesting.
