    When the Warriors win again this year I'll have this post made in June of 2018 to be like "see I told you the NBA was predictable now."

    I predicted the warriors winning next year like three years ago for the record

    My wolves prediction isn’t looking as good. Gonna need to see some jumps.

    Bulls gonna be bad again.

    Hopefully we can add another Duke player to go with WCJ in next year’s draft.

    I think Doncic is in the best position considering his past production, he will have the ball in his hands a lot, and he will probably play a lot.

    Also I’d say Trae Young. He’s gonna get to shoot a lotttttt. Won’t have pretty percentages but I can see him scoring quite a bit

    They won 11 games because Niko exploded, won a lot of really close games, which you expect to not be the case again, and fewer teams will be actively tanking to feast on.

    I expect the same or fewer wins from the Bulls.

    Okay, fair but the lottery rules change next season so maybe that'll make it harder

    I just have very little faith in the Bulls org.

    And I am also pretty low on LaVine. Although I was encouraged by Nick Fridell’s report that the Bulls are going to force LaVine to get an offer and then they will decide if they will match. I was concerned the Bulls would overpay to save some face after the Butler trade.

    Anyway, we will see!

    Edit: That’s my Bulls!

    They also thought it would be better to trade away a contributor on a championship team for $3.5 million in cash. So who knows.

    I like LaVine overall, he was fine last year for a guy coming off an ACL, but I definitely don't want to pay a huge salary when he hasn't shown that he deserves it.
