2018-19 NBA Predictions: Preview
In the midst of the NFL season, there is the closing of MLB. You can find our predictions for the postseason round by round here.
But that’s not the only major sport taking place during the crazy NFL season. We also have the start of the NBA season, and we look forward to seeing how LeBron looks as a Laker and how the Warriors plan for a three-peat.
Well, don’t worry, because Fourth Quarter Sports has got you covered with a full recap and predictions on all 30 teams in the league. Opening night takes place on October 16th, where the defending champion Golden State Warriors tip off with the Oklahoma City Thunder as the second game of a doubleheader. The first game has the Boston Celtics hosting the Philadelphia 76ers, so be prepared for the exciting NBA season that has already seen a lot of changes.
Those changes will also be given to you in the articles as you read them. I’m sure everyone knows about the more prominent players like LeBron and Kawhi Leonard, but what about Julius Randle and Tony Parker? Don’t worry about looking it up because the crew at Fourth Quarter Sports will give you everything you need to know heading into the season, including our picks for the Title and all awards.
These articles will be posted daily starting tomorrow, October 10th, leading up to the Tuesday night double-header. We know you all are patiently waiting for the official start of the season, but let’s find out where your favorite team will finish in their division.
Here is the tentative schedule for the release of the articles.
October 10th – Southeast Division
October 11th – Southwest Division
October 12th- Central Division
October 13th – Northwest Division
October 14th – Atlantic Division
October 15th – Pacific Division
October 16th – Playoff Predictions and Player Awards
No matter what division your favorite team is in, you should come back every day and see where the other teams finish. It may be more interesting than you think when you look at the Eastern Conference. Each division had at least two teams that made the playoffs. We could expect to see the same this year, but where will Cleveland finish? The Western conference was a two-team show all season, but with the emergence of the Jazz and LeBron joining the Lakers, we may see a slight shift in the standings. Or maybe we will see Russell Westbrook and the Thunder finally beat Kevin Durant and the Warriors and make their way to the top of the conference? How about the San Antonio Spurs rebounding from the Kawhi problems last season? What, and if, will the Minnesota Timberwolves do this season with their Jimmy Butler problem?
That’s why it is imperative for you all to pay close attention to each division as we break it down for you.
Hope you enjoy and please follow along!
