Make a bold but realistic prediction for next year?


Example: I am going to say that the Houston Rockets are going to win 60 games next season.

How is Houston winning 60 games realistic? Especially now the west is even stronger then last season, plus its hard for tmac and yao to play a full season w/o breaking a nail

Knicks are gonna have a better record this year.

And my second bold prediction is we will make some Spectacular Trade for a veteran Star wich expires in 10. using Marburys "Expensive but expiring Contract".

They won 55 games last year and there center missed half the season. And on top of that they were 24-20 to start. 60 games is very realistic.

Carmelo Anthony's rebounding and assists will both improve, and he'll play better defense and be more of a true team leader.

And J.R. Smith will get 6th man of the Year.

2nd, Wariors are The Worst team in the League

3rd, Duhon puts up great #s as a Knick(like 15 and 5)

4th, Cavs Make trade and get ZBO for Walace. (I THINK THEY ARE THE ONLY TEAM THAT WOULD)

HMMM. The Sheed was funny but Rose will not be a bust. what is the definition of a bust. a player that is higly rated and turns out to be a bench player. He may not be the best 1st year PG but at worst he will be a kirk hincich. That is a solid Starting PG. Not a bust. I think even you, a Miami fan can say that Rose puting up 15 and 6 is even reasonable for him. He will not be a bust.

O and I except that Beasly is a Beast.

1 Dirk Nowitzky will be wearing different colours by the end of February, and they could easily be Blue and Orange.

2 Either Pau or Bynum will by in trade discussions on the deadline.

3 Blazers will make the Playoffs.

4 Marc Gasol will play the Rookie-Sophomore Game.

5 Memphis is going to be the worst team .

6 Celtics will be out in the second round.

7 NUggets are out of the playoffs.

8 Philly will be in the secodn round.

9 Either Shaq , Nash or STou will not end the season in a suns uniform.

10 Marbury will get cut right after he is traded.

That first one isnt that bold. The league has made the statement over the past 10 years that scoring is not enough to win MVP's. Ask Kobe. You must be on a good team and be a good all-around player....

You were the 7th seed last season, before chicago got rose, before miami got beasley, before Toronto got JO, and with Gilbert Arenas injured.. So yeah, I think Philadelphia is going to be a 7th or 8th seed at best.. just like the clippers. I'll also go so far as to say the clippers are better than philadelphia is right now, and our roster isn't even finished. I think you'll be surprised by how well we do next season... :box:

There were plenty of predictions I saw that I wanted to post an 'are you crazy' reply to as well but didn't. It's for bold predictions. Not guarantees.
Seeing as you singled this one out and have made similar comments in the Suns forums as well, it doesn't take a genious to know your a Suns hater. Not even the Lakers fans have been as bad as you.
Thank you for your continued support.

Great they have Lebron... well Kobe has missed the playoffs before...so having one good player does not mean you are in the playoffs automatically...

1st of all, i never said they were better
2nd, Toronto is not better then Cleveland, not til they get a consistent scorer
3rd, Philly still needs time to gel before they become a legit contender
4th, The Pistons are aging, so look for them to be around the 4-5 spot
5th, yeh, Kobe has missed the playoffs but last time i checked that's when Kobe was alot more selfish, unlike LeBron (who averages 7.2 ast) and i can bet Kobe has never averaged that many assists, and look at the team LeBron's doing it with?

anyways, just wait, the Cavs are going to surprise a lot of people, especially if/when they pull off a trade that makes them an "instant contender" like everyone thinks Philly's going to be

i dont hate Philly, actually i kinda like Philly, but i think that they'll be at the bottem half of the playoff race still, you never know how they're going to play together, and they might not even get Iggy back, and if they dont, dont count on them making past the second round, or even getting past the first

1.half of the people on this forum are under the age of 20
2.65% of people on this forum are complete biast to their favorite team and make their prediction based on that.
3.Orlando will never ever win a championship unless they get a new pg.
4. miami wont make the playoffs if they dont get a pg
5.raptors are a questionable monster ... calderon has to stay healthy who is thier backup?? and Jo is always injured so if he goes out who is thier center??
6.pacers wont make the playoffs
7.chris anderson "birdman" gets hooked back on drugs
8.Gerald green will have a couple of teams pick him up and drop him based on his amazing talent... but will evetually go overseas .. he will come back in 5 years and become an allstar in 8 years from now..!!

There were plenty of predictions I saw that I wanted to post an 'are you crazy' reply to as well but didn't. It's for bold predictions. Not guarantees.
Seeing as you singled this one out and have made similar comments in the Suns forums as well, it doesn't take a genious to know your a Suns hater. Not even the Lakers fans have been as bad as you.
Thank you for your continued support.

yea as u can see im a spurs fan and the suns will never beat the spurs LOL :smoking:

5. D-Wade=MVP, after Heat get 3rd seed in east
6. Heat-Sixers ECF
7. Wiz beat Cavs....in a sweep
8. LeBron, Kobe, Melo, Amare and Carter all average 30 ppg or more
9. JO plays 73 games

Yes! They had a MVP candidate in Elton Brand one year and get to Playoffs one year. Now they a lineup where Camby is the second best player and everyone goes nuts. B-Diddy, Biedrins, and Ellis couldn't make it to the Playoffs together so B-Diddy, Camby, and Ricky Davis aren't going to do much.

Unfortunately the nuggs gotta make the playoffs for him to win the MVP - it's gonna be tight.

I did think he played the best on team USA last time they got together.

Yeah thats where i'm getting it from. Hopefully he takes a positive message from this Olympic experience and makes VAST improvments on the floor during the NBA season.
and yes. The west is Uber-tight this coming year..it's all about a fast start and faster finish. You can't hover in the bottom 3 like Denver, Dallas, and Golden State did last year, it leads to disaster in the Playoffs.

07-29-2008, 01:20 AM
If healthy, the Rockets will face the Lakers in the WCF, not sure whether they will wen against them or not.

Nugget153
07-29-2008, 01:27 AM
hmm interesting prediction.
Though you gotta wonder IF they can stay healthy..and remember..they played well without Yao in the lineup for that streak..
It's a TOUGH AS HELL western Confrence...One injury to a key memeber of ANY team (yes even the invincible Lakers) could end in them missing the playoffs. Think about it.

Lakers lose Kobe or Gasol-----GONE
Spurs lose Manu or Duncan---GONE
Hornets lose CP3 or West----GONE
Nuggets lose Melo or AI------GONE
Mavs lose Dirk or Howard-----GONE

Even the Suns (who will most likely drop off into the bottom half of the confrence with Denver, Dallas, and (IMO) the Rockets couldnt offord an injury.

my NEW prediction: A MAJOR injury will shape the Western Playoff picture

BOLD Prediction: Nuggets lost their only big that plays D and the other players will have to grow up/step up and play D and they will and finally make it out of the first round.

Another Bold prediction: The Phoenix Suns will not make the playoffs in the stacked West.

Nugget153
07-29-2008, 03:00 AM

BOLD PREDICTION: The Rockets will not make the playoffs..and the Trailblazers are added in their place making the Northwest Division the second toughest in the west (Southwest with Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas being 1)

Its seems your first prediction has to be forced into Nuggets for them to do good next season.

Another BOLD prediction the Western Conference will have 8 teams over .500 again next year
