Ben has known more about basketball than I do since he was eleven, and in those early, obsessive years he regularly predicted the final standings of a season more accurately than the guys at Sports Illustrated or The Sporting News. One year (1996?) he was positively eerie.

So Ben's take on the NBA finals is worth more than anything I could offer, even though he can no longer name the players on fifteen-day contracts for the Utah Jazz.
