2017-18 Final NBA Standings/Playoff Predictions

The NBA season is here finally. After weeks of previews here on the blog, it’s time for the bullshit to stop and the action to start,

Even though I’m pretty sure WE ALL know what’s going to happen this season, here are my predictions just to remind everyone.

Remember. Root for a non-serious injury to take out one or two of the Golden State Warriors in order to make the rest of the league competitive. That may sound a little sinister, BUT I SAID NON-SERIOUS INJURY! You know, like a broken toe or a severe case of diarrhea that lasts for like 6 months.

A guy can dream, right?
