This is my pretty much my prediction too. Maybe Mo Williams instead of Terry, and COY I don't know. Clippers/Heat finals. Clippers win.

Blake Griffin? Good luck with that :D wait until he can defend like Bargnani at least, because now he's worse


MVP: Lebron James
ROY: Thompson
MIP: Paul George (tbh, i don't think it will be anyone on rookie contract but no clue who)
DPOY: Dwight Howard
6man: Shane Battier
COY: Eric Spoelstra

and the negative awards:

RBOY (rookie Bust of the Year): Jimmer
Fall from Grace (previous allstar who becomes absolute shit): Chris Kaman (he and Boozer are both kind of shit already.... but Kaman was an All Star in 2010, Boozer - 2008)
first Coach to get canned: Westphal (SAC) or Vinny del Negro (Clips) (they have to start mediocre... but he's clearly the worst coach in the league imo)
There's no way Paul Silas gets canned, he's an awesome coach who bought at least a season last year

Nites 12-22-2011 04:04 AM

MVP: Kevin Durant
ROY: Derrick Williams
MIP: Ty Lawson
DPOY: Dwight Howard
6man: James Harden
COY: Lionel Hollins

ValanciunasFanboy 12-22-2011 04:14 AM

ohh right, James Harden, i forgot about him. He's got to be the favorite for the 6th man. If he doesn't start.

Scully 12-22-2011 10:23 AM

MVP: CP3
ROY: Jimmer
MIP: Evan Turner
DPOY: D Wade
6th: Harden
COY: Doug Collins

ValFB how can you say a Jimmer is going to be a bust, he is the only true scoring threat out of all the rookies, he is easly capable of dropping 15 in a qrt. How many Other rookies were getting double teamed at the 3pt elbow in preseason games?

D wade and CP3 could be interchangable.

ValanciunasFanboy 12-22-2011 11:34 AM

I think he'll be a bust compared to expectations of many fans. He may have a decent pro career though, idk. Carlos Navarro was good in the NBA with similar tools as Jimmer.

Also, Jimmer's current team is very selfish. How many times will Cousins rant at Jimmer for taking his shots this season? Jimmer will need veteran's attitude right away and ignore a lot of crap.

Yes he is on a terrible team, in terms of egos and selfishness. Evans is the biggest black hole in the NBA playing the 1. But I think he will get loads of play time. If he is a bust it will be because he doesn't get quality touches.

jimmer wont bust...
he's their starting pg.
didnt he drop 21 in their first preseason game? the guy can flat out shoot.

At the 2 not the 1.

ValanciunasFanboy 12-22-2011 03:16 PM

Johnny Flynn killed the preseason when he was a rookie, everyone was talking about how they must trade Rubio pronto. It's not the best predictions tool. Especially for such a messed up team.
We'll see.
But many fans are expecting him to be the next Stephen Curry, and I think that's very unlikely.
As I said, to me, he's very alike to Carlos Navarro. There's a place for those guys but generally their skill sets aren't fully embraced by their teams. The reason why Navarro left.

edki 12-23-2011 02:20 PM
