Tip-Off Tonight 

Knicks @ Cavs

Spurs @ GSW

Jazz @ Blazers

 

 

Any bold predictions for this season?   Here are mine .....

 

 

Magic -- another disastrous season unless Mario Herzonja can hit some 3's --- bust in the making.

 

GSW wins the Championship

 

Cavs -- lose to GSW in the Finals

 

Thunder go down in flames as Westbrook and Oladipo fight for the ball.

 

Knicks -- surprise team of the year as they knock off the Celtics then lose to Cavs in Eastern Conference Finals.

 

Lakers still suck.  The Heat join them

 

Wolves emerge

Spurs are giving GS the beat down of their lives. Nice start to the post Duncan era.

Leonard showing himself as a top 3 player in the NBA. Just keeps getting better. Quiet, humble, deadly. The ultimate Spur.

Small ball fad is dead. Goodbye Warriors.

I'm really getting sick of Curry's mouthpiece hanging out of his mouth.

I really thought I was going out on a limb with this prediction since NYK has sucked so bad in the recent years.  However, they stated last night that the NYK had the most $$ bet on them this season to win the NBA Finals.  Of course, there's always a lure to bet on an underdog because you get a lot more $$ in return.

 

Anyway ..... keep an eye on the Wolves.  Looks like the Bucks are up and coming as well.  Nice to see some small market teams do well.

Warriors are in trouble against a good team in a 7 game series.

I really hope so.  Given the fact that there is so much talent around the country and a team is only compiled of 5 starters, I'm hoping for a competitive balance at the top (regardless of how great their free agency signings seem to be).

I predict Klay Thompson will be on the trading block before this year ends.

I was always curious to see how Klay would perform outside of that offense. I know it's only 1 game, but you can kind of tell he doesn't like being the 3rd offensive option.

I really hope he stays healthy.  The dude is a freak -- he looks like a 7 foot Dr. J  !!!   Unfortunately, big men with prior long term injuries don't stay healthy. :(

The chant "TRUST THE PROCESS, TRUST THE PROCESS" when Embiid was on the free throw line was great !!

 

Gotta love those signs as well "JOEL Trust the Process EMBIID"
