Default NBA FACT or FICTION

It's the dog days of summer, and it looks as though the roster is (at least mostly) set, and there's little news about anything Raptors/NBA related now that the Olympics are done.

So, let's play NBA FACT or Fiction. This was a game that some of us played over at the old site (scout), so it may seem familiar to some of you.

Here's how it goes.

-The original poster makes a statement
-The second poster decides whether or not it is a True statement (FACT) or a False statement (FICTION) - with or without an explanation.
Here's the important part... the second poster then makes a statement after they have answered.


Seem easy enough? I'll also make one for the NBA page and link them in each others' threads.

(And here is the link to the Raptors FACT or FICTION)
Raptors FACT or FICTION

So here goes.

FACT or FICTION - The Miami Heat will repeat as NBA Champions on the 2012/2013 season.

FICTION - He won't even win MVP of his own team..competing with Dwight and Kobe, although he'll be a very important piece.

FACT or FICTION - OKC at least make the Western Conference finals this year.

I already asked that, and it's a bit early for repeats (which are allowed, as it gives somebody else a chance to answer) but..

FICTION - I don't think they repeat, as they'll probably either be facing the Lakers with Superman, or OKC with a year of experience under their belt, and will lose to either of those teams - if they make it out of the East.

FACT or FICTION - LeBron will win another MVP title this upcoming year.

FACT! Give it to him now... The Lakers will have all of the attention this year, but similar to Pat Riley winning it when he constructed his "big 3" the Heat have a big 4, and didn't have to give away Gasol to get Dwight. That coupled with Nash... makes him a slam dunk winner.

FACT or FICTION - The Bobcats will again have the worst record in the League

FACT. even though they will be seriously contested by Sacramento, Phoenix and New Orleans.

FACT or FICTION - Derrick Rose will never be the same after ACL injury. He'll become another solid PG, that's all.

I guess I was late to respond... I will keep my question and will answer Pzabby's one

FICTION. there are not too many options out there besides it will be too much to expect from them to do any better this year with LAL and OKC getting better.

FACT or FICTION - Derrick Rose will never be the same after ACL injury. He'll become another solid PG, that's all.

fiction, he'll still be a top pg in this league, just not MVP material.

FICTION - They caught lightning in a bottle last year and had the perfect storm, with Ginobili and Parker both playing in the Olympics, they will have a late season fade.

FACT or FICTION - The Timberwolves make the playoffs in the West this season.

Fact

Chris Paul gets traded to the Knicks in a multi-team/player transaction after being non-committed to re-signing with the Clippers when the 12-13 season finishes.

Fiction - Amare would probably be the Knicks biggest trade bait and it wouldn't make sense for him to join Blake with the Clips.

Fact or Fiction: SA makes a trade for Dirk at trade deadline to prepare for a final push to the NBA Finals.
