LAKERS
  • LeBron will get "injured" (or at least get injured then rest) to give THT playing time and increase his trade value. THT will get shipped before the trade deadline.

  • Joel Ayayi will be the Lakers' next Alex Caruso and he will be the Lakers' starting SG in the playoffs.

  • The Lakers reamin as the league's best defensive team.

  • The Lakers will win the Christmas game against the Nets.

  • Lakers will finish as 2nd seed behind the Jazz.

NETS
  • Everyone in their big 3 will stay healthy for the whole regular season and have a 20-game winning streak at some point in the regular season.

  • Cam Thomas, possibly along with Joe Harris, will get shipped before the deadline for a quality PF, if I had my guess, it's Chris Boucher.

  • LaMarcus will retire before the regular season ends.

  • Sharpe will be the Nets' consistent starting C by the end of the regular season.

  • Jahlil Okafor will beat his career-high in points (31) in a Nets uniform. EDIT: Brooklyn will regret waiving him.

  • Nets will finish as 1st seed with a 59-23 record.

WARRIORS
  • Moses Moody will end up the better rookie than Jonathan Kuminga but none of them will make the all-rookie team. (Sorry Warriors fans)

  • Steph Curry will average over 30 PPG and have the best 3-point shooting season of his career.

  • Klay Thompson will play at the same level he was pre-injury when he returns at Christmas and will become an all-star.

  • Warriors will finish as 4th seed behind the Clippers.

CLIPPERS
  • The Clippers will finish the regular season having the best offensive rating in the league.

  • Paul George becomes an MVP candidate.

  • Clippers will finish as 3rd seed behind the Lakers.

JAZZ
  • Rudy Gobert wins DPOY (again).

  • Donovan Mitchell still doesn't make the all-NBA team.

  • Jazz win more than 60 games and have the best record in the entire league.
