2020 Playoff Predictions
-The Bucks have some good pieces, but with D12, Westy but most importantly Bismack, this should be over quickly. Nets in 5
-Pacers have the depth that you look for in a team. That have good players in a big, a guard and the 3 position. Cavs will rely on DPOTY Isiah Austin heavily if they want a chance. Pacers in 6
-This will be the first upset, if you consider it so. The Raptors with MVP Jahii Carson, Nerlens Noel and the underrated Brandon Ashely should take this series. Pistons banking on Greg Oden and Paul George to take them to round two. I just don't see it. Raptors in 6
-Iman Shumpert. Who? Well Derrick Rose replacement is who, but I have the Magic moving on with a better starting lineup. Magic in 7
-The Magic have shown a great improvement, but they run into the vetern Nets squad who are looking to win one last championship before the Salary Cap will place some sever implications on them. Nets in 6
- Tough match up. Raptors have the better D, but Pacers have more options on offence. Im thinking it will come down to FBBs love with PG's. Raptors in 7
-Dwight vs Noel. Carson vs Westy. There are some good matchups in this series, but I see the veteran Nets coming out on top. Nets in 7
- Even with Ty Riggerton out for the first 5-6 games, I think the Rockets should pull through, though the Spurs win a few games. Rockets in 6
-The Clippers have had a hell of a season, and to put it bluntly, the Kings have not. They made a big deal to bring Kevin Durant to town, but it hasn't gone as planned. There are rumblings they will switch the lineup up to try to light a spark. Wouldn't be shocked to see an upset, but see the Clippers pulling though. Clippers in 7
- The Warriors have some nice pieces, but the Mavericks did their rebuild to trade them all to compete again. With Rose, Harris, Warren, McGary and Causwell the Mavs have a very good starting lineup and should move on. Mavs in 5.
-Well, the Lebron trade hasn't worked out the way the Jizz wanted. They have a great two headed monster in Bron and Purvis, but Bosh and Gasol aren't what they once were. Grizzlies in 7
-With Ty back the Rockets will probably once again rig their way through this round. Much to the disappointment of the Grizz, once again. Rockets in 6
- Probably the best match up yet, but the backcourt of the Mavs will allow them to move on. Mavs in 7
**** the Rockets. Mavs in 7
The team the made that blockbuster deal 3 years ago meet in an epic 7 game series. Will the rebuilt Mavs come through with their second championship, or will the Nets will one and show that their experience will come through?
Could go either way but I'll say your 2020 NBA Champions are the New Jersey Nets
