I think my glass is plenty full... I just said we'd maybe win a round or two. At the present, we'd limp into the playoffs with the 8th seed and get trounced in round 1 by Miami. The fact that I see us making some trades and moving up in the standings enough to match up with an Atlanta or Milwaukee is pretty positive.
Lakers. They have too much talent not to turn it around. Best big man in the game. 1st or 2nd best shooting guard in the game. Another top 5 big man in Pau... Both Jamison and Artest have game. Once Nash returns that team should start to look like newage Showtime. YOu're adding a top 5 playmaker and the #1 best shooter in the league. Give them a month or so to adjust to the new coach. Probably the favorite to win the West when the dust settles.
Boston will take until probably the trade deadline, but I do think we'll get it together. At the moment we have added some solid/mediocre talent (like 4 backup shooting guards), but the pieces don't really fit yet. Might take a couple moves. Mid-to-late February for them. Should play .500 ball until then. We should hobble into the playoffs and win a round or two.
You certainly are a glass half full type of guy.....at least when it comes to any team not named the Celtics.
Oh how I wish we could bet on this so people could actually put their money where their mouth is
You try so hard to be un-bias but it comes off as you trying to "reverse jinx" the Celtics or something.
Have any of your predictions in the past couple years come true? Or do you still blame the Rose injury and Garnett playing well (imagine that?!?) For our relative success last year?
Here are some possible excuses for your inevitable false predictions this year.
- I didn't know green was going to play like 6th man of the year candidate
-i didn't know KG was.goingto play like an all star
-i didn't know pierce was gonna play like an all star
-i didn't know rondo was going to start hitting that jump shot
-i didn't know AB was gonna continue to be a defensive beast
- I didn't know x player was going to get injured
Im sorry but there is so much talk during the season and putting a microscope on each game. Have fun with that. There is no doubt that I have already penciled in the Celts to the ECF.
Like I said last year they have WAY too much talent to be doing this bad
