Our Prediction for the Next NBA Season
In this blog I’m going to be predicting the results of the upcoming 2016-17 NBA season, which begins in three days. The biggest moves of the offseason were Kevin Durant going to Golden State and Dwyane Wade returning home to Chicago. Will these moves be enough to dethrone Lebron and the Cavaliers? Let’s find out!
There’s no doubt that Cleveland will again take the East, at least with their current roster. But how will they fare against a Warriors team that is now stocked with more talent than any other team in history? If they manage to win a ring this season, it should be considered one of the greatest accomplishments in basketball history. But my prediction is that there’s only so much Lebron can do, and that he’ll fall just short of his seventh championship. I also predict that Derrick Rose will play more than 56 games next year.
In the West, I don’t think any team has enough to beat Golden State. There may not have been a superteam like them before, but there are certainly teams with comparable talent (the 96 Bulls, for example). My prediction is that Golden State can win over 70 games this season and make a serious
The NBA season is coming up in just a few weeks. Basketball fans around the world are more excited than ever, but one question remains: who will win it all? Bleacher Report has made its predictions for the upcoming season, and we’ve got everything you need to know about them.
The NBA has released its schedule for the 2016-17 season. There are many games that we can’t wait to see, but there’s also one game that stands out above all others: Game 7 of the NBA Finals. This year’s matchup between Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will be a rematch from last year’s classic series, which saw Cleveland come back from down three games to one to win their first championship since 1973 by beating Golden State in seven games.
Our Prediction: The Warriors Win It All**
We’re predicting that the Warriors will win it all this season. They have a better team on paper than they did last year, and they’re going into this season with something to prove after blowing the NBA Finals lead against Cleveland last time around. We believe LeBron James’ Cavs are still formidable opponents though; we see them making another run at their second straight championship this time around as well.
We all know that the NBA season is coming closer and closer. It’s getting more exciting each day as we’re already making some predictions and speculations about who will make it far in the playoffs, which teams are going to step up their game, which players are going to have a breakout year, etc.
There are a few teams that have captured our attention and our hearts, especially the Lakers and the Clippers. The two teams have been playing really well lately and it seems like they’re going to be playing even better next season. We’ll keep you updated on what’s going on with these two teams, so stay tuned!
Like many people, I am looking forward to the start of the NBA season. I’m not a fan of any team in particular, but I love the game. Basketball is one of the greatest games: fast moving, high scoring and close games are the norm. It’s a great sport to watch on television, because there’s always something exciting happening on the court.
I’m really excited this year, because I think it will be a very competitive season. The Western Conference looks stronger than ever, with four teams that could win 60+ games this season. I predict that the Golden State Warriors will be one of those teams and comfortably win their division. In fact, I think they’ll end up having one of the best records in NBA history!
The biggest question mark for me is how good the Houston Rockets will be. They have a lot of potential, but we’ve seen them underperform in recent years due to injuries and other issues. If they can stay healthy and get production from their bench, they could surprise some people (including me!).
I also think it’s going to be an interesting year for point guards. There are so many talented players at this position right now that it’s hard to keep track of all their stats! And that doesn’t
The 2017-2018 NBA season is just around the corner and it is time to start making predictions. We are going to take a look at who we think will be in the playoffs, who will win individual awards, and some of the major story lines.
Let’s jump right into it. The East is pretty straight forward this year, but there are still plenty of things to talk about. The Cavs are the best team on paper and will easily win the East. LeBron James is coming off another MVP caliber season where he averaged 26.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 8 assists per game. He has all his weapons back from last year including Kyrie Irving (25.2 ppg, 5.8 apg), Kevin Love (19 ppg, 11 rpg), Tristan Thompson (7.8 ppg, 9 rpg), J.R Smith (8.6 ppg), Iman Shumpert (5 ppg). They also added Dwayne Wade, Derrick Rose, and Jeff Green through free agency this past off-season which gives them arguably one of the deepest teams in the league right now with so many different options on how they can go small or big with lineups and players they can throw out there. They will coast
The Eastern Conference is probably the more interesting of the two conferences to start with. The West will be a battle between the Warriors, Rockets and Thunder. The East is wide open, with no less than 6 teams capable of making the NBA Finals. At this point it’s a toss-up between Boston and Cleveland for the top spot in the East, but Toronto and Washington aren’t too far behind.
The Celtics are finally healthy, returning all key players from last season. Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward were two big additions that should help them tremendously, but they still have some question marks at center with Al Horford as their only true five on the roster.
The Raptors made some moves to help them get over their playoff demons, adding CJ Miles and OG Anunoby while subtracting PJ Tucker and Demarre Carroll. They also added Serge Ibaka last season at the trade deadline so this should be their best team since LeBron James left the conference in 2010.
Cleveland is still Cleveland, even if they’re not quite as good as they were a few years ago. LeBron James will once again have to carry them into the playoffs, even if he has a questionable supporting cast around him this time. On paper they’re better than last year’s team, but
