    Default NBA/College Basketball 2017-2018

    So the NBA season started a couple nights ago and I thought it would be appropriate to create a new thread to discuss the new NBA season and the upcoming college basketball season.

    Some way too early predictions to get the discussion going...

    West, in no order after #4:

    Golden State
    Oklahoma City
    San Antonio
    Houston
    Los Angeles Clippers
    Memphis
    Minnesota
    Denver

    Some good teams will be left out I think, such as Portland and Utah. This conference is way too deep. If the NBA decided to put in the top 16 seeds no matter the conference, I'd say 10 of the teams would be from the West. Golden State will be your #1 and I think OKC will edge out San Antonio for the #2.

    I was going to leave Memphis out of the playoffs originally but I just couldn't pull the trigger. We lost Tony Allen and Zach Randolph but added Mario Chalmers again, signed Tyreke Evans and Ben McLemore, and drafted Dillon Brooks, who could be a dark horse ROTY candidate. Barring any major injuries I think they could sneak up to the #4 seed but 6-8 seems most likely.

    East, in no order after #4:

    Cleveland
    Washington
    Toronto
    Boston
    Milwaukee
    Atlanta
    Philadelphia
    Miami

    I honestly don't keep up with the East as much as the West since my team is in the West, and usually wind up watching WC games, but Cleveland is definitely the frontrunner in the East with Washington being a strong #2 as well. I still have hope for Boston as they are the team I usually root for in the East, but with the loss of Gordon Hayward, I went from putting them as the #2, possibly #1, to being #4.

    Western Conference Finals: Golden State vs. Oklahoma City
    Eastern Conference Finals: Cleveland vs. Washington
    NBA Finals: Golden State vs. Cleveland (again)

    MVP: Honestly I have no clue. Westbrook has a lot more talent around him. Harden can't be counted out. There's always KD and Lebron to consider too. Watch out for the Greek Freak as well.

    ROTY: Ben Simmons
    DPOTY: Rudy Gobert
    COTY: Scott Brooks

    I would've posted more but there's really not that much to say about this young season yet, except **** injuries and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN SOMEONE PLEASE ELIMINATE GOLDEN STATE AND CLEVELAND BEFORE THE NBA FINALS?

    I just know it's gonna be a long season for my Lakers.

    Hope for the best of Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram. Especially in tonight's performance.

    I am not a Basketball fan, but I have a soft spot for the Lakers.

    When it comes NBA basketball, I happen to be a fan of the LA Lakers. As for college basketball, the Gonzaga Bulldogs are doing quite well so far.

    That's one of the most ridiculous stat lines I've ever seen. Couldn't believe it when I saw it last night.

    Also I can't believe that Boston has won 13 straight games after starting 0-2.
