NBA predictions for next year

Hey athletes! With the draft concluded teams can now start training camp soon. Yes, this is probably a bit early but I have some predictions for the new season! With the talented rookie class and even more talented free agent market this season should be a great one! Although, new tax rules say if you go over the salary cap limit, you will have too pay a heavy fine so teams that go all out to keep their teams together will have to pay even more.

—-East—-

1) Miami Heat- this hurts me more than your retnas reading it but they have Juwan Howard, how do you compete with that.

2) Chicago Bulls- this is tough because they will lose Derrick Rose for about half the season.

3) Indiana Pacers- they showed they can hang with the elites, look for big things from them.

4) Orlando Magic- Now, this is with Howard, with out him I drop them to out of playoffs.

5) Philadelphia 76ers- they are trying to move Iguodala which would get them a little bit younger.

6) Milwaukee Bucks- with the addition of Monta Ellis he can give the Bucks what they need to get this high.

7) Boston Celtics- they are old. Ray Allen could be departing I think they will make a trade mid-season.

8) Detroit Pistons- look for the big man Greg Monroe to go for 20 and 10 next year!

9) Atlanta Hawks- they were the oldest team in the NBA and they could lose Josh Smith, they are on the downfall.

10) Cleveland Cavaliers- With Kyrie Irving and that young lineup they will start off strong, then fall off big time.

11) New York Knicks- Carmelo can’t work with Amare’ so one of them has to go,,, Amare’, stronger trade market for a big man.

12) Washington Wizards- John Wall now has a man to open the lane for him, but the Wizards need a little longer.

13) Brooklyn Nets- If Deron Williams stays all season, they might mve up into the 10 or 11 slot.

14) Toronto Raptors- They aren’t the most graceful of teams, and they honestly won’t get it done this year.

15) Charlotte Bobcats- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is good, don’t get me wrong, but not turnaround worst team in history good.

——–West———

1) Oklahoma City Thunder- the new tax rule means tey might not be able to bring back Harden, but the Thunder will prevail.

2) San Antonio Spurs- they showed alot of heart last season, they may be old, but are one of the elites.

3) Memphis Grizzlies- towards the end of the season the Grizzlies really turned it on. Look for it to click for them.

4) Dallas Mavericks- they had a bad year. But this time they don’t have a championship title weighing them down

5 ) L.A. Clippers- Chris Paul will get his usuall 16-19 PPG and 10+ assists

6L.A. Lakers- they will fold under pressure, Gasol will be traded, Bynum will shoot threes, madness….

7 Houston Rockets- The time for them has come. Probably the best draft picks possible and they made good use of them

8) Portland Trail Blazers- They will make it. Getting Lillard helped them immensely at the PG spot, just resign Hickson already Portland!

9) Phoenix Suns- If they lose Nash drop them down 3 spots..

10) Minnesota Timberwolves- Kevin Love is the only guy that can carry them when they need it, they need another year.

11) Denver Nuggets- I love Ty Lawson, but he needs a better supporting cast.

12) Utah Jazz- how they made it in with Houston playing well, I don’t know. Although Paul Millsap is beast.

13) Golden State Warriors- getting Draymond Green helped so much, but he’s not the answer to their problems (answer- Big Man) .

14) Sacremento Kings- Thomas Robinson can help greatly but losing Tyreke Evans possibly is too much.

15) New Orleans Hornets- Drafting Davis and Rivers will help some, but not enough to get out of the cellar

Later Athletes!!!

    THE TIMBERWOLVES JUST GOT A GOOD SMALL FORWARD IN ROBBIE HUMMEL OUT OF PURDUE A LOT OF PEOPLE UNDER ESTIMATE HIS SHOOTING BUT WHEN HE WORKED OUT FOR MIAMI THEY HAD HIM SHOOT 50 THREE POINTERS AND HE MADE 45 AND HE IS A GOOD DEFENDER HE CAN GUARD THE POST BLOCK SHOTS AND CAN DEFEND THE PICK IN ROLL SO
    I THINK THE TIMBERWOLVES SHOULD BE MOVED UP

    Come on Dalt Celtics will be top 3.
    I dont think 1 year there in the east finals and next year down to 7 seed, and even if they get 6th or 7th seed, look for them to go deep into playoffs. They also added Sullinger and Melo to the team.
    Rondo will carry the Celtics if he has to or Greg Stiemsma!!
    I can guarantee it.
