My 2010 NBA Predictions

Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Evening To All!

As the 2010 NBA Season Tips-off in a few hours, i will let the world know my predictions for this upcoming season.  As you know I’m a huge basketball fan, i have many players i love to watch as well will continue to root for my Portland Trailblazers and Orlando Magic.  This by far will be probably one of the greatest seasons known to man, with all the player movement and possible lock-out i tend to think every player will give it their all (finally) now it’s a damn shame Allen Iverson will not be involved in this season; as he signed a contract with Turkey.  I say its a shame because he still can ball, he still will score, put fans in the arena and i will always support him.  He was the last player of the “JORDAN” era, he was the trend setter for headbands, sleeves, low socks, low shorts, tattoos (seriously, name a player before him who had that many tats?) but thats rather here nor there and i’ll get to my predictions.  I understand i’ll get a lot of questions and differences but that’s what sports is about, we’re allowed to have our own opinion, its up to you how you back it up and trust me i can back it up and hold my ground if we’d get into a debate.

HERE IT IS …. my NBA season predictions for 2010

MVP – KEVIN DURANT, SF – OKC  proj – 31.4ppg 45%fg 7.3rpg 4.2apg 1.2spg 0.8bpg

6TH MAN – TERRANCE WILLIAMS, SG/SF – NYJ proj – 16.4ppg 46%fg 6.5rpg 6.4apg 1.5spg 0.6bpg

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR – JOHN WALL, PG – WAS proj – 17ppg 44%fg 7apg 5rpg 1.3spg

EAST PLAYOFF TEAMS

  1. MIAMI HEAT
  2. BOSTON CELTICS
  3. CHICAGO BULLS
  4. ORLANDO MAGIC
  5. MILWAUKEE BUCKS
  6. ATLANTA HAWKS
  7. CHARLOTTE BOBCATS
  8. NEW YORK KNICKS

WEST PLAYOFF TEAMS

  1. LOS ANGELES LAKERS
  2. OKLAHOMA THUNDER
  3. DALLAS MAVERICKS
  4. PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS
  5. SAN ANTONIO SPURS
  6. DENVER NUGGETS
  7. UTAH JAZZ
  8. HOUSTON ROCKETS

notes – i believe the Knicks can get the 8th seed in the playoffs, they got a good thing building and who know whom they might get at or before the trade deadline.  Being that you have to reward division winners, i still have Orlando as the 2nd best team in the East behind Miami, Boston is the 3rd I’m not buying what everyone else is, I don’t see them reaching the finals, but they’ll give Miami and Orlando a run for their money. I like the Bucks as my surprise team this year, everyone will fall asleep on them but Jennings is a year older and they got some nice depth this off-season.  This will make an interesting season and a must watch playoff run, I got Jazz 7th because they haven’t shown they can win on the road, which was their downfall last year and could continue this year and I’m banking on Portland being a full healthy team this year, if that happens, look out.

PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS

EAST FINALS – MIAMI OVER BOSTON IN 7 GAMES

WEST FINALS – LAKERS OVER DALLAS IN 6 GAMES

NBA FINALS – MIAMI OVER LAKERS IN 7 GAMES (MIAMI HOME COURT ADVANTAGE)
