It's that time of year again. To help get us through to tip-off let's all show off our predictive prowess. I'd say there's nothing too far out of bounds, but let's try not to get too zany. For instance, the Monstars will not win this year's Finals so don't even try it
I'll get the ball rolling.
The Rockets will not trade any of their players this season. Morey has this roster exactly where he wants it.
Andre Drummond is going to be an absolute force this season. It is likely that I will never fully forgive myself for not grabbing him in the 2nd round of our fantasy draft. Drummond will come close to averaging 20 & 20 with 3 blocks a game. He might even make some free throws.
Jeremy Lin will thrive in Charlotte. The collective resonance of 10,000,000 "I told you so's" spoken simultaneously will cause earthquakes in California and beyond. The collective groan emanating from 6,000,000 Houstonians will cancel it out and spare the rest of the southeastern US.
The San Antonio Spurs finish #1 in the WC. Anthony Davis destroys them in round 1 of the playoffs.
Minnesota, Milwaukee, and Philadelphia will be the most fun teams to watch this season.
Rondo will wind up losing his job to Darren Collison shortly after the All-Star break.
The Washington Wizards finish 2nd in the EC and push the Cavs to 7 games in the EC finals before falling.
Draymond Green regresses.
Damian Lillard will make 13 threes in a game this season.
Kobe Bryant will play in at least 60 games this year.
That should get the ball rolling.
