What does it take to make some accurate bold predictions? Knowledge of the game, maybe a little luck, but mostly some big cajones. If most people agree with what you're saying, it's not bold. Truly bold would be statements like:

- Greg Oden will be a flop
- The Pistons will miss the playoffs this year

You get something like that right, and I dunno about the rest of the board, but you've earned mass respect from me. Every year, nearly unpredictable stuff like this does happen.

One more thing, literally bolding your prediction might have been good for a chuckle before, but not now that I've called it out.

Kobe will get injured.

I was thinking about that earlier, nobody seems to mention the possibility of Kobe getting injured next season.


bold prediction: Andrew Bynum for DPOY

I don't think KG deserved DPOY this season. he's a good defensive player, but not quite DPOY good. the reason he got it is that the Celtics were a great defensive team last season, and they credited it all to Garnett. If Lakers transform to a great defensive team, won't voters have to admit that Bynum was the difference maker in the defense?

we can all see you are a hater of MANY teams, my prediction is that Lakers do not have top seed in the West or second seed, finish 3rd and New Orleans kicks them out 4-1 in the second round, pau is going to play less then 50 games and bynum will average under 7 boards a game, fisher will have an ankle sprain and retire and phil jackson is going to light his beard on fire
kobe does not finish in top 10 for mvp and pau nor bynum will make the all star list

The Nuggets need to trade A.I or something because he is taking far too many shots.

Melo needs to carrying this team on his own, not with another superstar like Iverson who takes about the same amount of shots as Melo or more.

The Melo - A.I experiment is over. It is not working out Denver and Dever fans thought it would.

Denver should trade Iverson to the Pistons for Rip Hamilton and J. Maxiel, it would satisfy both parties. The Pistons need a go to go and the Nuggets need an effective player who can play without the basketball.

I don't think he'll be a bust, however his numbers for that few games don't impress me.. there are 30 game stretches where Nazr Muhommad put up better numbers than that.. that doesn't make him a stud.. plus he is coming off of surgery that very few people can come all the way back from

rockets go 82-0 with the addition of artest, only to lose in the first round because ed wade signs t-mac as the astros #4 pitcher in the rotation behind scrubs like randy wolf and chris sampson.

Ok, i got screamed on for my "not-so-bold" prediction before, so let's see...someone's due for a break-out season...my prediction is it will be Rudy Gay. He'll average somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-22 ppg, and make the west all star team or just narrowly miss it.

Boston, while still being the best team in the league will suffer thru an injury plagued season, hold on to the top one or two spot, but be taken deep on each series and eventually bow out in the ECF or in the finals against a fresher western conference champ...my guess it it'll be LA.

Andre Iguodala will revert to "with original AI" form and re-become a role player averaging somewhere in the neighborhood of 13-16 ppg, and not quite living up to his lofty contract.

The EASTERN conference is where the major pre-deadline trades will take place this season. Teams gearing up for the post-Boston tea party where an open eastern conference is up for grabs, will make some major moves toward winning it.

I understand that this is a bold prediction thread, but I fail to see how a 24-year old player on the rise can revert. A veteran who strung together a few surprising seasons can revert to ordinary and 'come back down to earth', but Iguodala is too young to take a considerable step backwards, and then have the backward step compared to season's when he was 22.

My BOLD Predictions: -Elton Brand will play in 80 games this season-
-Shaq will average a double-double-

Clippers also get 7th seed, but lose to Lakers in all LA WCF (guess where I'm from)

Kobe and Carter put on scoring clinic in Finals each averaging 40ppg
Lakers in 7. LAL avg 120 ppg, Nets 118.

How about Mike Miller avg 23-25 ppg in Minnesota and being their go-to-guy? I think there is a chance he could steal the show from Al Jefferson and play at all-star level only to get screwed out of the ASG cuz....well, he's Mike Miller. I'm also going to say he breaks the record JRich set last year for 3 pointers in a season. It's a little silly, but bold nonetheless.

08-21-2008, 12:20 AM
I was thinking about that earlier, nobody seems to mention the possibility of Kobe getting injured next season.


bold prediction: Andrew Bynum for DPOY

I don't think KG deserved DPOY this season. he's a good defensive player, but not quite DPOY good. the reason he got it is that the Celtics were a great defensive team last season, and they credited it all to Garnett. If Lakers transform to a great defensive team, won't voters have to admit that Bynum was the difference maker in the defense?

i agree with garnett should not receive DPOY but i dont agree that Bynum will be either)unless proven wrong... IMO hes over hyped(not trying to bash) Laker fans are making it sound like the new shaq... i think dwight will be a better big man to win that award or even surprise!! Lebron wining as he is very over looked IMO defensively.

Bulls will go 52-30, finish 4th in the East. Beat the Heat in 1st round, Celtics in 2nd round, and will lose to the 76ers in ECF, Derrick Rose will go 18 ppg 8 apg 3 rpg 1.5 spg win ROY, make the All-Star game. Vinny Del Negro will win the Coach of the Year Award. Luol Deng will average 23 ppg 8 rpg 3 apg 1.5 spg 1.5 bpg and will come in 13th in the MVP voting. Tyrus Thomas will average 17 ppg 9 rpg 3 bpg 1 spg and will win Most Improved and DPOY. Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, and Tyrus Thomas will form one of the best trios in the NBA.

I still think my predictions are the best BOLD Predictions.:D

I said this once before in a thread like this and people :speechless:FREAKED :speechless: out, but I'm going to say it again anyways, and this time I'll back it up with my reasoning behind the logic. Firstly, my BOLD prediction for next season is the Clippers making it to the playoffs and putting together a nice playoff run. I think its fair to say the absolute best we're going to do next season is like the 6th seed. So basically my BOLD scenario is this..
Clippers land the 7th seed to make the playoffs, match up against NOH in the first round. Clippers can beat the Hornets. Its very doable. So up to this point, my reasoning in not entirely bogus, right? Right. Okay so then all of the sudden we're in the 2nd round of the playoffs. Lets say however it works out, Clippers are matched up with the Jazz in the 2nd round. Again, surely the Jazz have the upperhand in the matchup, but also again, you can't sit there and tell me the Jazz are incapable of losing a 7 game series to the Clippers. All of the sudden we're in the WCF. NOW I'll draw the line, because the teams that'll be making it to the WCF likely include LAL, SAS, or HOU... the 3 powerhouses of the west. I myself don't think the Clippers can take any of them in a 7 game series, thus me drawing the line at my prediction of Clippers making WCF. BELIEVE IT!

Dug up last year's bold prediction thread after I noticed this year's. Not-so-bold prediction: you stole the idea from me :p. My picks for best 2008 predictions are:

Hellcrooner:

Det: Will trade at least TWO of their 2004 Champions.
Hou: Lose in teh West finals to Lakers, T-Mac and MIng play all the season.
S.A : Out in the first round.
On the Raps: Well, sadly, as i want good things to happen to Jose and would love to see Pau beat Jose in the finals, but its one of the less far fectched predictions i did.

You need more depth a Sg and a SF, and i wouldnt bet my life on Jo,s Health.........

Chief 0 o Wahoo

Sixers and Raptors will be major disappointments with all the preseason hype. (really think this will happen)

SaimoNETS:

Devin Harris will make the all-star team

downsos:

The Bulls will make the playoffs and their MVP will be Ben Gordon!

18colts29:

Danny Granger will be a top 10 scorer in the league next year at 23 ppg. Should make All Star team but won't.

Tha Truth:

Vince Carter gets traded to Orlando after requesting a trade.

The Nuggets need to trade A.I or something because he is taking far too many shots.

Melo needs to carrying this team on his own, not with another superstar like Iverson who takes about the same amount of shots as Melo or more.

The Melo - A.I experiment is over. It is not working out Denver and Dever fans thought it would.

Lakersfan2483:

Denver should trade Iverson to the Pistons for Rip Hamilton and J. Maxiel, it would satisfy both parties. The Pistons need a go to go and the Nuggets need an effective player who can play without the basketball.

RapsFan4Life:

billups get traded to the west

Nexus:

Greg Oden will be a flop (I actually don't think he will be LOL)
Detroit will miss the playoffs (almost, just like the Devin Harris to the all-star team one)



...With the overall winner being Cheif 0 o Wahoo imo :clap:. I thought some of the wrong guesses we're pretty funny, but you can search those yourself.

Lots of love for the Knicks, the Suns, the Clippers/Baron Davis and Donte Green.
