Hey all – Steve here. It’s already that time of year – it’s the start of the NBA season! I have always found the start of the NBA season to be pretty interesting. It starts around the time of the World Series (which starts tonight) and it starts right in the middle of football season. I think I am pretty safe to say that those fans that have the most interest in the NBA opening up shop for the 2015-2016 season are any baseball fans that are not fans of the Mets or Royals or are not big enough fans of baseball to care about the World Series. On top of that you should also take a look at those NFL teams that are stinking it up right now – and I am looking at fans of the Ravens, Titans, Texans, Lions and another handful of teams. It also feels as though it is the same story every year – there are just a few teams that are relevant in the East and the West is just wide open and full of talent and full of teams that would make the playoffs if they played in the East.
All of that being said, let’s get to the predictions for the upcoming season. In case you were wondering, none of the members of the CineSportsTalk panel even chose the Warriors to make it to the Finals. Food for thought – as I have said many times, this prediction thing is pretty damn hard. Here we go and enjoy the season!
