Thought this might be a fun way for us to pass some time before the season gets here, so let's give it a go. What I'm looking for is a couple of things (I'll list them below,) feel free to offer thoughts on some or all of the predictions, and I look forward to your thoughts. To start off, I'll list all the predictions and give my own.
- Rookie of the Year
- Most Improved Player
- Defensive Player of the Year
- Sixth Man of the Year
- Coach of the Year
- GM of the Year
And how about a couple of Celtics
predictions, seeing as this is Celticsblog.
- Celtics MVP
- Celtics Best Young Player (under 23)
- Celtics Defensive Player
- Celtics Most Improved (rookies excluded)
- Celtics Best Bench Player
- Celtics trade you wish would happen (just one)
Here's my predictions, let me know what you think of mine, and I look forward to yours.
MVP - LeBron James
Rookie of the Year- Victor Oladipo
Most Improved Player- Kawahi Leonard
Defensive Player of the Year- Paul George
Sixth Man of the Year- Harrison Barnes
Coach of the Year- Thibs
GM of the Year- Blazers GM (Olshey)
Celtics MVP - Gerald Wallace.... I don't buy Rondo and Green will be here through the entire season, and Rondo is still out with injury. Wallace seems to supply leadership, toughness, and hustle.
Celtics Best Young Player (under 23) - Jared Sullinger.... Need I say more?
Celtics Defensive Player - Avery Bradley.... Kinda obvious. I don't think he's worth a big extension, but he'll be the best defender for the Celtics this season.
Celtics Most Improved (rookies excluded) - Kris Humphries..... It should be easy for Hump to improve on last season, I've got my eye on a double-double season for Hump.
Celtics Best Bench Player - Jordan Crawford.... Shows some PG abilities, and still hits crazy ass shots. Should be a volume scorer for us this season. If you need proof, look what he did on a crappy Wizards team last December.
Celtics trade you wish would happen (just one) - Trade Machine seems not to be working, but I'll try: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=mjnl4ya
Boston Gets: Caron Butler (expiring), Giannis Antetokounmpo
Milly Gets: Jeff Green, Courtney Lee
Do it Danny!!! Tanks away!
Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
