Hmm.

East
- Carmelo Anthony is traded.
- Indiana make it to the conference final.
- Nobody below 3rd seed wins 50 games.
- Chicago finish as the first seed.

West
- Sacramento make the playoffs.
- Warriors win 69 games.
- Anthony Davis becomes only the 3rd player in league history to win MVP and DPOY in the same season.
- OKC are healthy but underachieve and finish outside the top 4 seeds.

Spurs don't get a top 4 seed and get bounced round one.

Davis is so overrated on d. He gets a lot of blocks cause he's out of position. He has potential to be great but as of right now he's mediocre. He recovers well cause he's an athletic freak but yeah. His post d and 1 on 1 d is overrated

Just saying it pisses me off, even in the DPOY thread, he gets mentioned when he shouldn't. You wanna prediction? I predict lakwrs and Knicks suck next year

Hmm. Your description of Davis is actually accurate of some former dpoy. Also I think you're exaggerating his flaws and playing down his strengths. He's not Deandre Jordan. He's way more than just a volley ball spiking shot blocker.

But again. I don't see why any of this is relevant. Surely you could discuss this in the threads related to it? Like the one you mentioned. Why drag it in here? Seems pointless.

East:

1) LeBron does exactly what he did in Miami after his first season. Bounce back and win MVP and the Finals.
2) Jabari Parker has the best season of all the rookies/sophs.
3) Miami finishes 2nd in the East behind Cleveland. Justise Winslow wins ROY.
4) Atlanta goes from 1st to 5th, behind Cleveland, Miami, Washington, and Chicago.
5) Kevin Love reminds everyone how good he really is and Cleveland figures out how to use him. 18 and 13 season.

West:

1) The Clippers finish 1st in the West.
2) San Antonio finishes 2nd, but gets upset in the 1st round. Parker and Ginobili show their mileage.
3) The Warriors finish 3rd, and lose in the WCF to the Clippers.
4) Dwight Howard wins DPOY and averages 15 rebounds per game.
5) Kobe Bryant plays 70-75 games this year, puts up 20 ppg with little efficiency, and the Lakers finish either last or second-to-last in the West.

So Anthony Davis is MVP but not part of the tightest MVP race in history...And to be fair is the Knicks win 50 games then Melo probably is in the race and probably would win it......but these are bold

The only one I feel good about (and it may not be just for this season, but over the next 5 years) Justin Anderson will be the next Kawhi Leonard/Jimmy Butler.

East
Melo is traded to the Lakers
Bulls have a better record than last year despite bringing back the same group and replacing Thibs
Milwaukee gets HCA
Miami misses the playoffs due to health


West
Anthony Davis wins MVP (NOP win 50 games)

Doug McDermott wins 6th man of the year after averaging 16 ppg and 6 rpg on elite efficiency.

Twolves win 40 games and go over .500 the second half of the season.

Melo is traded...somewhere.

Derrick rose plays 75 games and makes the all-star team.

Westbrook leads the league in scoring 31 ppg, beating out KD by half a point. First duo ever to average 30 in a season (I think...maybe)

Kings best the rockets in the 2nd round after beating the Spurs in the first round. Cousins and gay and rondo are all stars

If Rondo is one of the top half of NBA starting PG's I will be blown away

1- durant w/Collison & Waiters to Wizards for Nene, Beal, porter, sessions, and 2-1st rd picks.

OKC doesn't make that deal if Washington includes 10 1st round picks.

Sixers get the first pick in the draft after losing the lottery, the Kings get lucky and win the first overall pick, and the Sixers use there right to swap picks.

Sixers end up with the following draft picks in 2015 - 16

#1 - swap picks with Kings
#7 - from Lakers
# 15 - from Heat
# 22 - from Thunder


Durant does not leave the Thunder and signs long term after the season is over.
Both Rose and CP3 play every game.
The Cavaliers have the most wins in the NBA but no other team in the east has as many wins as the 8th seed in the west.

1. Jimmy Butler's PER drops back down to 15-16
2. Klay Thompson's PER drops back down to 15-16
3. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist makes the First Team All-Defensive Team
4. The Heat win 55 games
5. The Rockets win 60 games
6. Frank Kaminsky wins the ROY
7. Raptors implode, clean house after the season ends
8. Lillard goes Westbrookian and becomes the 5th player ever to average 26-8-5
9. Pistons and Jazz make the playoffs as something better than an 8th seed
10. LeBron suffers his first ever major injury (predicting injuries sucks...but yeah...too much mileage)
