  2. Oklahoma City:  Settled PG = All Star PG

First Coach fired:  Terry Stotts

Conference Finals:  Golden State vs Oklahoma City aka Petty Championship of the World

Prizes

MVP, DPOY, Scoring Champion: Anthony Davis

Rookie of the Year: Collin Sexton or Luca Doncic

Coach of the Year:  Billy Donovon

Most Improved Player:  Jeremy Lamb, Charlotte

Sixth Man Of The Year:  Kyle Kuzma , LA Lakers is my dark horse but its Lou Will forever

NBA Finals: Golden State 4-2 over Boston

Summer ’19: The biggest free agent class since 2010 plus more money on the cap tops anything we have ever seen.  My way-too-early predictions are : Golden State with 3-peat in hand loses two of its core and many of the top FA’s change cities.

Here is your receipt, I’m sure you all will remind how wrong I am (lol).

Let the season begin!
