MVP-Lebron James
Rookie of the Year-Trae Young
Defensive Player of the Year-Anthony Davis
6th Man of the Year-Isaiah Thomas
Coach of the Year-Luke Walton
Most Improved Player-Josh Richardson

Maybe that last one is a bit of me hoping but I think he will be a contender for that award. Barring any major trades, in which I think it would be fair to revise, this is my top 8 for each conference (at least in terms of W/L record)

West
1. Houston
2. Golden State
3. Los Angeles Lakers
4. Utah

I think there's gonna be some backlash on Kawhi so I don't think he'd get MVP unless the Raptors absolutely dominate the season (Like 65+ wins dominate). I do see him getting DPOY though as the Raptors are absolutely solid defensively and should be in the top 3 defensively as a whole. (Best defensive player on best defensive team... Unless Nurse is Triano reincarnated)

MVP: Davis
ROY: Ben Simmons
DPOY: Kawhi
6th: Isiah Thomas

Most of the predictions I've seen seem fairly reasonable, but someone will have to explain the Isaiah Thomas winning 6th Man of the Year selection. I get that the guy is talented and is two years removed from a great season, but he's not even healthy right now, there's no timetable for his return and he was just completely abysmal last season.

Why should he be a stronger candidate than guys like Gordon and Lou Will, who are actually healthy and played well last year? It just seems like a totally random pick, and it's especially odd that 3-4 posters seem to agree with it.

For the East... Celtics vs. 76ers in a few hours and Bucks vs.Pacers this Friday, will help one to have a more clear picture on how teams compare... Both extremely interesting games for one to watch...

I predict the Celtics will win today's game but only in the last minutes, but the Bucks will have an easy victory over the Pacers on Saturday.

Conclusions for the East, out of reviewing the Celtics vs. 76ers game...

-The Sixers relied on their star players, the Celtics relied on teamwork, coach tactics and roster depth. Embbiid had 43mins, Simmons had 37 mins, no player of the Celtics had more than 30mins.
-No "role" player on the Sixer's team, the Celtics used "fresh" Baynes on Embidd in the 2nd half as to "exhaust" him out...

Therefore: The Sixers will have problems with "deep roster" and well coached teams like all Celtics, Raptors, Bucks and Indy are this season... I see them not being able to achieve more than winning one only game on average out of the four with each of those teams, but... I also think the Sixers will have easier time with lower ranking seed teams, where they should be able to achieve more 4-0 wins...

So, for the Sixers to achieve 3rd seed overall is not impossible, but most probably they'll end up 4th... If they do end up 4th however, I predict they won't pass Indy in the first round of the playoffs.

So far...

East:

1.......
2.......
3.......
4. 76ers
5. Indiana
6. Wizards
7. Heat
8..........

More of my predictions after the Celtics vs. Raptors and Bucks vs. Pacers games later this week.

Making predictions halfway through the season completely defeats the purpose of predictions. By the trade deadline, we'll already know who the candidates for the major awards are and roughly what the playoff contenders will be.

Can't say about ROTY, but it won't be Knox... not because he lucks the talent - I really agree that he has the highest future potential out of this season's draft - but because of his age... like with Giannis, he was the youngest drafted... he only turned 19 a month ago.

On all the rest you are far out... Giannis will win MVP this season, that I can say... but all the rest have 0 chance...

On East...

Sixers will no way be above the Bucks this season... Heat will make it at a low seed, Pistons are favorites for 8th, but not certain to just make the playoffs... The Magic 7th, that's a joke... right? Wizards you have out, will be above the Heat and below Indy.

Interesting picks here, but I just don't see any way Paul George wins MVP. Hell, I wouldn't put him in my top 10 most likely players. He's only ever finished in the top 10 in MVP voting once, and he's not capable of the level of production worthy of the award. Unless Westy misses a huge chunk of the season, and if that happens, OKC won't be good enough record-wise for him to win it.

So I'd be curious to know how you came to pick George as your MVP?

Three silly statements.

Tatum was 19 last year and it took two unbelievable performances to keep him from ROTY. Using Knoxís age against him is absurd.

Giannis commentó-homerism at its best.

Fair. But I do kinda think you're really overrating OKC and those two guys a little bit in your predictions, though. With Roberson missing a huge chunk of time, too, I think that Thunder team is closer to a 5-6 seed than the 2-3 seed you see them as. I could always be wrong, though. Wouldn't be the first time...

But... I never look through homer glasses.... It's just that people underestimate the improvement the Bucks will have this season...

If you look at bets, the Bucks keep improving and so does Giannis for MVP as the information comes in...

The Bucks can now play all possible tactics from "3 guards on the floor", "2 guards + 2 forwards", "3 towers" and even modern "2 big PFs moving like wings with no Center"... They win for tactics in all matches vs. mismatches against all teams in the league and have really deep roster strength to support these tactics for as long as it takes...

Also... if there will be one team (which I doubt there will be) that will compare with the Bucks in the number of 3 attempts and the 3s made, that can only be the Rockets... no other!

The worst case scenario, is that the Bucks will only achieve 52 wins this season...

Pretty much everything you said here screams "homer glasses." They won 44 games last year, and they were 25th in the league in 3-point attempts per game. Assuming other teams take the same number of threes (they'll probably take more), the Bucks would have to nearly nearly 50 percent more 3-pointers or more than 11 per game to catch the team with the second most attempts.

If the Bucks can win 50 games and crack the top 5-10 in 3-point attempts, those would be monumental improvements they should be ecstatic about. Eight more wins as a "worst-case scenario" is just totally absurd.

i get what you are saying and i think players in their first 3 years should be excluded from MIP. But since it always goes to guys kind of similar to Fultz he does have a good chance just based on how voting is done.

a good young player who made natural improvements in his 2nd or 3rd year? all the time

That's not Marcus Fultz. He is a young player that was taken #1 overall in a solid draft. This means he was supposed to be good from the jump. he didn't play much his rookie year b/c he was listed as injured. He wasn't taken in the second round and then went from making the team and scoring 10 a game to 25 in year 3 like Glibert Arenas. If Fultz is a candidate so is Gordon Hayward.

in a season prediction thread you wrote "Lebron > world" come on dude how can anyone take you serious when its all you do? youve repeated yourself about 1278935795963434x this off season already.

Dude stop crying.

Lebron is the best player in the world. I know it hurts you that itís a reality u live in. Since it bothers you...

I really don't get how you guys think he should be considered for MIP. He's never played. Are you upset the 14 games took him out of contention for ROY? Maybe you guys can sneak Simmons into the Rookie/Soph game.

For some of us (me) itís just the continual bashing of players. Simmons has a really damn good night and a near triple double, but the first thing people say isnít that, itís ďwell he didnít shoot so thatís why they didnít win.Ē

I think Simmons get plenty of love. He is a heck of a player. He does have a hole in his game though. He definitely is a positive player and was one the other night

Oh that is he/isnít he a rookie tall far out shadowed !(even in the media) that we saw two rookies putting up decidingly non rookie numbers.

And the fact that DMitch played into it only made things worse IMO.

Conclusions for the East, out of reviewing the Celtics vs. 76ers game...

-The Sixers relied on their star players, the Celtics relied on teamwork, coach tactics and roster depth. Embbiid had 43mins, Simmons had 37 mins, no player of the Celtics had more than 30mins.
-No "role" player on the Sixer's team, the Celtics used "fresh" Baynes on Embidd in the 2nd half as to "exhaust" him out...

Therefore: The Sixers will have problems with "deep roster" and well coached teams like all Celtics, Raptors, Bucks and Indy are this season... I see them not being able to achieve more than winning one only game on average out of the four with each of those teams, but... I also think the Sixers will have easier time with lower ranking seed teams, where they should be able to achieve more 4-0 wins...

So, for the Sixers to achieve 3rd seed overall is not impossible, but most probably they'll end up 4th... If they do end up 4th however, I predict they won't pass Indy in the first round of the playoffs.

So far...

East:

1.......
2.......
3.......
4. 76ers
5. Indiana
6. Wizards
7. Heat
8..........

More of my predictions after the Celtics vs. Raptors and Bucks vs. Pacers games later this week.

East:

1. Dinosaurs
2. Deers
3. Celtics (wins the conference, unless if Bucks get Butler)
4. 76ers
5. Pacers
6. Pistons
7. Wizards
8. Bees

West:

1. GSW (wins the conference)
2. Rockets
3. Pelicans
4. Blazers
5. Nuggets
6.Jazz
7.Spurs
8.Clippers

EDIT: Clippers, OKC & Lakers fighting for last 2 seeds... Clippers favorite to take one seed, OKC expected to accelerate after Westbrook returns.

It's how it works for me.... We, those that have high basketball knowledge, never talk based on looking to a "crystal ball"... We first have to see how coach Casey has set up the Pistons, how coach Bud has set up the Bucks, how the return of Heyward and Kyrie has affected the Celtics, how Leonard will be integrated with the Rockets, how Bron will affect the Lakers, what imediate impact or potential some rookies may have and to what degree, some other details that seem unimportant to you and then... we talk!
