Who can challenge Cleveland in the East?
Do we have potential GOAT squad in Golden State?

Does Westbrook get moved?

What's on the Heat roster that OKC would be interested in besides HW? I don't think they have the pieces to get that done.

I got golden state going 74-8 and 16-2 playoffs

I don't think they'll try to set the record but i cant see them not amost accidentally doing it.


I mean yeah it could take a few games to mesh perfectly but that lineup is simply ridiculous anytime they need to go on a run in the 4th quarter

^ I'm sure this post will be remembered about May 2017.

I see GSW resting a lot once they lock up a playoff spot and end up somewhere around 65 wins.

It will probably be like most of my tww predictions .

If it's wrong I'll hear about it 1,000 times


But if I'm right like predicting cavs over the warriors everyone will pretend it wasnt a big deal


Talking about the same guy who predicted the #8 seed over the #1 seed two years in a row and called kawhi leonard as the next god of the nba prior to the draft.

It's pretty much impossible to know more about the nba than I do yet i still get shit

i think bosh being a mystery token will decide the heat's fate. without bosh, heat are a lottery team. with bosh, heat could be a second rounder.

after we stop kidding ourselves, it's probably another cavs/warriors final.

Heat won't be as bad as people think. Wade did not have a very good year.

Josh Richardson isn't a household name yet but he will be after this year. Between dragic, whiteside, winslow, and johnson they still have plenty of talent.

I think they make bosh sit, they want the salary relief. He wasmt worth that contract in the first place he's old

I moved to San Antonio 20 years ago so there isn't much of my time as a Spurs fan that I don't remember having Duncan. I'm incredibly sad to see him go but it was time even though he could have continued to play. Going out like this vs a Kobe-esque farewell tour is exactly what I thought would happen and now they will go into the hall at the same time as well.

Miami is still pretty stacked . I think they win 45 games if whiteside is healthy

Wade is pretty clearly the most overrated players in the nba along with Derrick rose

Wade is fine. He's been the soul of Miami for over a decade. And he arguably was the best player there even Lebron joined him.

Lebron is actually more overrated than him imo. The best player on this planet just got his first ring ALL BY HIMSELF this yr. He appears in the finals every single summer but fails a lot of times.

To be fair, he did beat the greatest team in regular season history essentially by himself. Well, with an assist from the league for suspending Green.

Regular season championship doesn't mean much. Everything restarts from playoffs.

When you look back at the last season, actually cavs have a stronger roster than gsw. They should have won the title last yr if two of the big 3 didn't get injured.

That's why gsw acquires KD to help them.

And I remember during like the middle of the regular season, he lost his confidence a little bit to beat gsw, so he started talking about moving to the south beach to reunion with Wade once again, and calling some other stars like CP3 and melo to form a new Big 4 or something like that. That's coward thinking once again. Now of course he redeemed himself and nobody talks about that anymore.

He should have already got a ring or two before he moved to Miami with Shaq besides. Like Wade did.

With the best PG and PF in the league helping him, he still couldn't defeat gsw until the last several secs in game 7. Is this the best player on this planet? Again, he's overrated.

When you have a young Bird or American Paul Gasol and a young Magic Johnson besides you, it's too hard to fail. And the debate about BPOTP is still going on, him or Curry.

^^ It's not bold. Irving is No. 1 PG in the league right now. Probably everyone agrees with that.
Love passes his peak a little bit, but still solid. Top 3 PF at least.

Ah man I am continuing to respond to shoot. Irving is clearly the top PG over Curry who a few posts ago, you said was the best player in the NBA. That makes sense. One great series doesn't make Irving the top PG. Westbrook is clearly more dominant, Curry is better, Paul is too. If Irving can play like he did in the finals during a season consistently, then yes he will be in that elite class.

Now please stop trolling. Love is not a top 5 PF anymore.

At his peak, he was.

And for Irving, his time is coming soon. Start from this summer, Rio Olympics. Coach K will give him a starting PG position.

CP3 is getting old, and Westbrook & Curry are both SG.

OK. I always think Westbrook and Curry are taller than Irving or Rose.

With a height of 6'3, you can only play PG in this league, who is supposed to be the shortest on the court.

I just want to be unequivocally clear that NO ONE would consider irving the #1 pg in the league.

He had a pretty rough regular season.

He's not even close to curry, paul, and westbrook level.

And I'd take many others like lillard, walker, conley etc over him

He's coming.

He's certainly better than Walker I think. And he's still young. And because there are too many talented PGs right now, the No. 1 title for this position is much more competitive than other positions, for example, C or PF.

But, after maybe two yrs, things are gonna change. We will see. Coach K trusts him and puts him into the Dream team, No. 11 I guess?

How about Wade? Was he better when Lebron went to Miami? Definitely not. He became a pass-first PG and just gave the ball control to the king.

Kyrie Irving averaged 4.7 APG last year, while only playing 50 regular season games. The 4.7 APG would have tied him with Derrick Rose and Monte Ellis for 26th in the league. There's 19 PG's on the list ahead of him, along with players like Nick Batum and Jimmy Butler. Definitely not the best pass-first PG.
