We haven’t even played a game of the 2016-2017 NBA season, but some people like to jump the gun no matter what. Just ask our SportsGuru Hornets, who is (if you couldn’t guess) a Hornets fan.
Maybe that’s why he has his Charlotte Hornets as a #2 seed in the East: above the Toronto Raptors, the Indiana Pacers, and the Boston Celtics. This isn’t even considering the fact that the Boston Celtics apparently aren’t going to make the playoffs despite signing Al Horford and drafting Jaylen Brown.
And what about the Utah Jazz beating out the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers in the West? Does trading for George Hill, Boris Diaw and signing Joe Johnson make the Jazz deep enough to actually contend in a top-heavy western conference? Sure, players like Tony Parker, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Chris Paul might be getting up there in age…but are these teams really going to regress to the point where the Utah Jazz will overtake the majority of the West?
Everybody seems to have a crazy list of predictions before the NBA season actually starts. Even so, I don’t think there’s anybody disputing the fact that Golden State and Cleveland will be the #1 seed for their respective conferences.
