The Orlando Magic topped the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals Game 1. The L.A. Lake Show closed out the Denver Nuggs in the Western Conference Finals Game 1. Both games were epically close and ESPN Classic worthy.
And, both games featured teams that were respectively led by one of the five starters from last Summer's USA Olympic Gold Medal winning basketball team.
Which star had the best Game 1 in their conference final?
Which teams will win their series? Who do you want to see duke it out in the NBA Finals?

Back when Shaquille O'Neal was playing for the Miami Heat he compared his career with All-NBA guards to the Corleone brothers. Shaq said Dwayne Wade was Michael, Kobe Bryant was Michael and Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway was Fredo.
But, to really understand Penny's everlasting impression on basketball just have Craig Sager ask King Lebron James,
"You know I've never patterned my game after anybody, but I can receive flashes of Magic and some of Penny Hardaway one of my favorite players."

Nike wants Bron v. Kobe.
"The Celtics, the little defending champs that could, won tonight on a Big Baby buzzer-beater. This might be the series that goes seven and really builds some suspense. But could it ever, really? There's a cloud of doom hanging over these games, like, sure, one team will eventually triumph, but neither one has a prayer of matching Cleveland. It's lambs to slaughter, and this foreboding makes it almost too painful to watch. Even if it goes seven games."-Bethlehem Shoals
Unless of course KG comes back.......

Cate Blanchett, Tina Fey, Matt Damon and Liam Neeson are among the English voices that will dub over the Japanese film.
