The 2013-2014 NBA Regular Season begins tomorrow, and we here at the Sports Script are bringing you some season predictions. This holds all the previews for every single team that was done over the past month, as well as some Conference previews, and finally we have thoughts on who will win each division, playoff teams, NBA Champions and NBA award winners.
Let’s right now begin with the every single team preview done over the course of the last few weeks:
Los Angeles Lakers
New Orleans Pelicans
Portland Trail Blazers
Golden State Warriors
San Antonio Spurs
Oklahoma City Thunder
Matt B: My NBA champion is the Clippers. It’s not often you trade for a coach but when you do it’s saying something about the coach. Doc Rivers is a game changer he will get the very best out of that team. The Clippers have been right on the edge the last few years and his leadership is the reason I”m picking them to win the NBA Championship.
Ricky: I think that the signing of Doc Rivers is really going to help get the group of talent that the Clippers have together and take them to the Championship.
The Heat are no brainers, while teams like Brooklyn and the returning Derrick Rose and the Bulls are going to make a run (none of which will beat the Pacers) but Greg Oden is going to play a nice role and great addition to a loaded Heat lineup.
The Heat will beat the Clippers in 6 games and win their 3rd straight NBA Title.
Matt W: The NBA is about as wide open as it’s been in years, but as much as things change, they always seem to stay the same. The Heat are best team in the NBA, and if you asked me to take the Heat or the field, the other 29 teams, to win the NBA Championship, I’d take the field. But being as you have to take one team to win it all, I have to go with the Heat. They have the best player on the planet right now, and have made that team into a buzzsaw of three point shooters. A few teams could potentially take it to them with a couple breaks, think the Spurs, Pacers, Thunder, Nets or Bulls, but no team is outright better than them. I have the Miami Heat winning the NBA Championship in 6 games versus the Oklahoma City Thunder, as they leave with a third straight title. It’s going to to be a very fun year until then.
