We are rapidly approaching the midpoint of the season across the league, so I thought we would have a little fun checking in on some preseason predictions. As a reminder, the selections are below and were made before the year began.
A little tired of the continual drumbeat of complaints the 82 game season causes? Lately, I can’t stop thinking about what would happen if the league decided to go the other way entirely – too few games. Instead, how about this: Erase everything you know about the NBA schedule, seeding and playoffs and replace it with the NFL model. Games don’t start mattering until Christmas? Quite the contrary. Every. Game. Matters.
Commissioner for a day – now that has a good ring to it. The first thing I’d do is think about some ‘Game Changers’. Not the transcendent superstar player type, but literally changing the game.
Welcome to the very first edition of The Grid! The Draft Class thought it would be fun to etch some predictions in stone/screen for the upcoming season.
