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.
