Greg Cote’s Poll Dance: Will the Boston Celtics or Dallas Mavericks win the NBA Finals? Vote now!

Probably pointless to even say, because you vote how you want to vote, but this is true not a poll on rooting interest. Doesn’t ask who you want to win, but rather who you would predict shall win if you had something on your mind. (Money, for example, as completely arbitrary.)

Do you predict Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving and the Dallas Mavericks will win that club’s first championship since their only one in 2011?

Or will you bet on Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics winning the storied franchise’s 18th title, but its first since 2008?

Vote in our poll as many times as you like, or until your fingers get tired:


Who would you predict or bet will win the NBA Finals?

Last week’s Poll Dance verdict: Finally a (fairly) close poll! We wondered, “Does Inter Miami have to win an MLS Cup championship for Lionel Messi to play here to be judged a success?” Your answer: 58 percent said, “No. Messi in Miami was already a resounding success.” And 42 percent said, “Yes. In short, that’s the main reason he’s here.” Please note: these polls are not and don’t pretend to be scientific. In fact, when I arrived at work this morning, I was harassed by seditious scientists.
