If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? A philosophical thought that has taken too much of our time, to be honest. We now live in an age filled with technology, so it’s all about sending the screen shot or providing video evidence. An event does not exist until a selfie is procured. We ain’t got time for the bullshit. Now, the time consuming question is “Photoshopped?” Anyways, the purpose of today’s post is to provide the predictions for the upcoming NBA season from your favorite Razzball writers. Who will be shamed? Who will be exalted? Regardless, we shall forever be etched into the annals of Razzball history….that is until I edit the post at the end of the season. Someone better screen shot this mofo!

    @mel How is Minnesota a surprise playoff team?? They went all in this year and anything short of a playoff birth would be a disappointment. Pretty sure everyone has them in their radar to make it.

      Oh man did I hit the wrong button again?!?!

      Naa, my thinking is in the West who the hell knows what’s going to happen, so many legit teams, and I just wanted to show MORE love to my MVP pick KAT.

      I was debating between them and LAL but I think they’re a year off or so.

      If Embiid stays healthy, you win. With that said, I’m skeptical on Seth Curry. I also don’t like Drummond for your squad. You’re light on boards and blocks, but he totally nukes your FT%.

        @Son: Thanks SON! talk soon bro!

    Keeper help. Auction league 10 team ESPN h2h. I can either keep:
    ADavis and Lillard and Simmons
    or
    A.Davis, Millsap, Simomons and Conley?

    My auction dollars ($200) remain the same regardless of which scenario I choose.

    I have the 10th overall pick in my upcoming draft. How concerned are you (we) about Kawhi’s injury?

    Is he a great value in that spot? Or should I be playing it safe with Cousins or Chris Paul?

    • Son

      Son says:

      @RICE: It’s good value, but all comes down to your risk tolerance. Personally, I’d go in a different direction, but that’s just me

    Love this site- I’ve been coming here for 3 seasons now.
    h2h 12 team, 9 cat DD no TO

    Drafted Jabari late to stash on IR, looking to fill his spot, I’m leaning towards Swanigan. Are there other holes I should be trying to plug (I’m thinking I need some more Boards)

    Gobert, Whiteside, Lowry, Lonzo, Teague, G Harris, Crowder, Oladipo, Ingram, J WInslow, Lin, Thon

    Son,

    You’ve seen my team (reminding you below), should I drop Ferrall or Powell for Swanigan to boost my boards? I’m lacking in assists so I would probably drop Powell, but Powell has nice potential, however, I have a lot of guys like Powell. Thoughts?

    UT – Giannis Antetokounmpo
    UT – Jimmy Butler
    UT – Kevin Love
    UT – Al Horford
    UT – Victor Oladipo
    UT – Avery Bradley
    UT – Gary Harris
    UT – Danilo Gallinari
    UT – Jeremy Lin
    UT – TJ Warren
    Bench – Dwayne Dedmon
    Bench – Rodney Hood
    Bench – Josh Richardson
    Bench – Yogi Ferrel
    Bench – Norman Powell

      I’m a Powell fan, but I love Biggie as well. Unless he gets named the starter, I’d probably hold onto Powell for now. But I’d be ready to pounce.

      • Brent

        The Fantasy Dick says:
        (link)

        @Son: @Son: What I was reading today made it seem like Swanigan is gonna be the starting PF. That’s why I started considering snagging him. And I have a lot of guys like Powell on the team and Powell will be competing with Miles.

          @The Fantasy Dick: At least until Vonleh comes back, but he’s easily their best rebounder

          • Brent

            @Son: Drop Powell or Ferral? Leaning towards Yogi…

                @Son: last question…waste a waiver spot or wait to see if I can get swanigan when the waiver waiting period is over tomorrow?

                  @The Fantasy Dick: @The Fantasy Dick: or Larry Nance?? Randle got hurt (back spasms)… Nance doesn’t look like a scorer, but boards, steals and blocks for sure…I’m still leaning Biggie tho…

                    @The Fantasy Dick: Sorry….Donovan Mitchell is also available….I am not big on rookies tho, I’ve been burned in the past (a lot like the lessons I learned in college..)….

                      @The Fantasy Dick: Oubre and Diallo seem like pretty good sleepers too…Oubre is in is 3rd year and the Wizards have been using Porter at the 4 this preseason to get Oubre the start. Diallo would tear it up in the likely scenario AD gets hurt..or Cousins gets hurt

                      Agree. Oubre will probably get more run

                      All good. I love Mitchell, but I think you’ve answered your own question

                  • Son

                    Son says:

                    I was high on Nance in the offseason, as I thought he would get plenty of run at the 5. There’s a lot of competition in the front court in LA. Biggie

                  Do you like to live dangerously? The tie-breaker for me is always, “which scenario would piss me off more?”
