    1. 52 wins.
    2. 2nd seed, behind Cleveland.
    3. Charlotte
    4. DeMar, Kyle, Ibaka
    5. Bebe, for a second-rounder, to make space to sign Vince Carter when Sacramento buys him out towards the end of the season so he can ring-chase
    6. CJ Miles starts on opening night
    7. Demar's 3P% will be 35%
    8. Jonas starts in 45 games
    9. Van Vleet with more MPG than OG, but mostly because FVV gets a head start over OG due to injury
    10. Wiltjers is the 15th man

    NBA predictions:

    1. Cavs win the title over the Warriors
    2. Cavs win the East (duh)
    3. MVP: Giannis Antetokounmpo
    4. ROY: Lonzo Ball
    5. n/a

      The 2017-18 GM survey has us at 4th behind Cleveland, Boston, and Washington.

      http://www.nba.com/gmsurvey/2017#/

      We only got two honourable mentions, best draft steal (OG) and best home court advantage.

        I still don't understand all the Washington love.

          Top two players are big time playoff performers.

            Here’s an interesting one..1 in 4 GMs (37%) say that Dennis smith was the best pick in the draft....Smith went 9th overall...so one of those r spenders just said they whiffed on their own pick....I know is math..but this shows that this “survey” likely finds its way to the marketing department rather anywhere near basketball operations..
            And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.

              Ok, sure. But how does that result in more regular season wins than the Raps?

                They think Wiz big two is better than Raps big two.

                  I think one of the rules is you can't vote for your own team or players.

                      1. 48
                      2. 4th
                      3. WAS
                      4. DeRozan
                      5. JV if possible in a salary dump to keep Powell
                      6. Miles, Casey is an idiot that loves vets irrationally
                      7. 29%
                      8. Majority until he's traded
                      9. They will be fairly equal
                      10. McKinnie, Tolzman loves him


                      Some NBA predictions:

                      1. GSW obviously, there is only an illusion of competition unless KD or Steph get injured
                      2. Cavs easily
                      3. Kawhi, candidate with the least help
                      4. Ball most likely, then Smith Jr and Kuzma with strong consideration, Fultz and Simmons cannibalize each other
                      5. NO. Boston is treating him as the face of the franchise and OKC is committed to trying their best to compete

                        If it’s anonymous and you would have to lean that way....how would you know...

                          It's anonymous ie: they don't publish who voted what. The vote collectors probably know who voted which way.

                            There were also 4 other PG's drafted ahead of him. And maybe only the Knicks would reconsider. At the time Minny and Boston had their PG situation settled and perhaps Orlando & Phoenix could live with theirs as well.

                            So Dallas is praised with a great pick but mostly they got lucky due to those circumstances - which for the most part were logical and defensible at the time.

                              Ok here's a BOLD prediction(ok i'm not sure if this is really bold because he's a hell of a player): If Joel Embiid stays healthy, he's going to win the MVP. He is that good. He has all the talent to be the best player in the game.
