Take this for what it's worth in regards to the talk about the NBA tipping the scales in favor of a Lakers-Celtics finals.
On espn.com today, there is a poll that asks, "Who would you rather have the Lakers play in the finals- Boston Celtics or Detroit Pistons?"
The results so far after 21,000+ votes are 79% of the people want to see Boston in the finals and only 21% of the people want to see Detroit in the finals.
That huge disparity is definitely enough for David Stern and the NBA to at least be rooting for the Celtics to win and maybe even doing more to get that match up...
