The Warriors will make the postseason
Yao will end up playing more than 24 mpg.
Tony Parker will be traded so George Hill can start
Portland grabs a high playoff seed and Brandon Roy will finish within the top 5 of MVP voting.
Wade will finally improve his long range shooting
Rajon Rondo will lead the league in triple doubles
Dwight Howard becomes MVP and DPOY with an improved offensive game and an added mean streak.
Aaron Brooks will be an Allstar
The Cavs win 30 plus games and scrap into contention for the postseason
George Karl will publicly critisize Melo once he is traded
Cuban will push for another overhaul in the Mavs roster, trading an unhappy Marion and Jason Terry.
The Lakers will not repeat, mostly due to Andrew Bynum going down and Kobe slowing down
Orlando will end up winning it all

10-26-2010, 08:17 AM
Bulls finish with the #1 seed.
D.Rose is league MVP
C.Boozer is 1st team All NBA
Miami goes down in round 2.

10-26-2010, 08:54 AM
A thread for homers to overrate their teams.

10-26-2010, 08:59 AM
Thunder will make the finals -- and win.


10-26-2010, 09:07 AM
Is this an opportunity for haters to "post their unpopular views"?

10-26-2010, 09:09 AM
As long as it doesn't attack a fanbase.

10-26-2010, 09:41 AM

Yao takes the Rockets all the way after they add Iggy
Miami wins it all
Lebron averages a triple double
Charles Barkley makes some more terrible remarks and eats more
Dan Gilbert quits after saying the Cavs will win it all
Gasol becomes the best player on the Lakers
Mcgrady proves everyone wrong

10-26-2010, 09:49 AM
LeBron proves all his doubters wrong and wins regular season MVP and Finals MVP.

10-26-2010, 10:05 AM
Durant does nothing but score at an average shooting % for his position. He is physically talented but doesn't rebound or use his height advantage to see the court, read the defense, and create plays for others. He's like a SG trapped inside a PFs body. Is that supposed to be good? How many times do big players get knocked for being "finesse" while Durant gets a free pass? He's a great player, but he's one dimensional (as of now) and people are overrating him.

10-26-2010, 10:34 AM
Nets sneak into and make the postseason this year as the 8th seed.

10-26-2010, 10:57 AM
lakers fail

10-26-2010, 11:01 AM
I agree with those who say Kobe will slow down a bit. I think his extraordinarily high amount of games played will continue to catch up with him. With or without him, the Lakers finish #1 in the West.
LeBron will win the MVP, and people will start to get off his back again, he's hungry, and nothing has changed: he's still the best in the game
The Magic and Heat go 7 games in the ECF, in one of the best series ever
The Thunder finish no better than the 5th seed
Dwight will win DPOY unanimously
The Knicks, Magic, Heat, Mavs and Blazers are the only teams to average 100%+ attendence
Bill Simmons is right; Blake Griffin is a top 5 PF already
Greg Oden will be an all-star
The Nets make the playoffs
The Magic, with their trade assets, make the biggest splash at the deadline
The Heat will win 71 games
People will begin to see that Durant has no business being mentioned as the best. Great scorer, amazing person, but his all around game won't look as good this year.
Serge Ibaka wins MIP

10-26-2010, 11:20 AM
The Knicks won't make the playoffs

Kobe has a significant decline

The Heat win 70+ games

10-26-2010, 07:08 PM
Kings finish .500.
Beasley averages 20ppg.
Jazz finish the #2 seed and/or make a playoff run.
The East remains boringly predictable with Magic/Celtics/Heat top 3 all season.

10-26-2010, 07:15 PM
Wizards 10th in ecs during asb then reveal they are changing back to the bullets their 1st game back then go on a incredible run make it to the playoffs and get past the 1st round

10-26-2010, 10:11 PM
sounds like "kobe having a decline and gettin injured a lot" is NOT an unpopular opinion...

then i say,kobe will win the mvp,lakers 3 peat.
