NBA Champion 2020 

Post#1 » by sixers4real » Wed Jun 12, 2019 9:29 pm

Too early to tell, with SO MANY things to go unknown.
But let’s just put it this way, we vote, and I get this topic back up in one year.

EDIT: Raptors are in. Sorry.

The Lakers nor knicks made the playoffs this year, how do they manage to get top billing instead of being labled "other"?

Any reason why the Raptors aren't on here? Kawhi out of Toronto is still up in the air.

No point in predicting anything before the offseason even gets going. Ask in August maybe and its worth discussing

Since we're just throwing wild guesses, I'll go Lakers. LeBron returns for 1 last season as best player in the league, they get Anthony Davis, and fill out their roster with supporting players.

Right now, before FA, I would still pick the Warriors. After FA I probably won't.

So many variables, there's no point in taking a guess at this time, it's not like in recent years where the rosters are set for the top teams, this off-seasons free agent frenzy is going to be insane.

Obviously OKC. I don't know why the hell the Lakers are even on there. Even if they get AD they'll be lucky to make the playoffs.

Warriors are still heavy favorites for me if they keep Steph, Klay and Draymond. Too much uncertainty around most of these other teams.

If the Celtics get Kyrie back and get AD they're my pick. Depending on who they keep to build around them. But its so early anything can happen. Hell if KD opts in it might still be GSW.
