The Chicago Bulls will repeat as the NBA champions this season, according to the respondents to Friday's "It's Your Call" question.
The Bulls got 85 of the 363 votes registered (23 percent), defeating the Los Angeles Lakers, who received 62 votes (17 percent). Six other choices were listed with the following results: Boston Celtics (13 percent), Portland (8 percent), San Antonio (6 percent), Utah (5 percent), Phoenix (4 percent) and Houston (2 ++ percent).
Another 79 votes (22 percent) said another of the league's 19 teams would take the championship in June.
"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certai segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
