With over 30 games of the NBA season gone, it's time for some bold predictions and I mean BOLD. My bold prediction is that the Clippers and the Knicks will meet in the NBA finals. What's yours? P.S. no neg parties in this post. I just wanna see what everyone's bold prediction is.
Bulls will play in the ECF.
Kobe will end up averaging 34 ppg this seaosn and single handedly carry the Lakers to a decent record.
Shaq will call out Dwight 169 times before the season is over.
The Lakers will panic fire Mike D'Antoni in 3 weeks.
The Thunder will deal for Anderon Varejao.
Jose Calderon will continue to play like an All-Star prompting the Raptors to trade Kyle Lowry only for Calderon to start playing like a role player again.
Russell Westbrook will dominate the dunk contest, prompting him to beat his chest so hard that he cracks his ribs.
Kobe will 'single handendly' carry the lakers to a decent record?????
Single handenly with the best Center in the game? i think not.
Perhaps he needs to try to make it work as a team as opposed to taking on the challenge himself.
I am a strong believer that Kobe is forcing his PPG and would much rather be on a decent team were he is the man and has to take a ton of bad shots and can do it efficiently because Dwight draws A TON of defenses even 'off the ball.' as opposed to be on a winning team lead by Dwight where Kobe plays a merely complementary role.
Blake Griffin averages a shade under 8 rebounds per game for the season.
Andrew Bynum returns and plays in the last month of the regular season as the Sixers are out of contention.
Roy Hibbert gets out of his funk after the all star break and averages 13pts-9rbs-3blks for the season.
Golden State will hit a bump and have a 7-10 game losing streak down the line.
James Harden wins MVP
Brandon Jennings makes first all star game.

-Toronto wins a game in their division...finally
-11 Western COnference teams post records that would put them in the Playoffs if they were in the East

Bynum decides to pursue a career in bowling, becomes a world class bowler, signs a huge contract with some bowling team, only for him to be ruled out indefinitely because he hurt his knee playing a pick up game.
Kendrick Perkins finally smiles at some point in the playoffs.
IF Tim Duncan announces that he will retire after this season, and they are in the finals and game 5 is his last home game, he will be just as fired up and dance just like Ray Lewis did today.
John Wall will play before the All Star break
Sorry, but that's not bold at all, he's already back practicing without any limits and is getting into game shape. All he needs to do is get into game shape and he's good to go, they say he'll play within two weeks, which is a month before the All-Star break. Even if he suffers a setback than he'd still have 3-4 weeks before the All-Star break to get back.
The Timberwolves will play 2 games in a row without a player getting injured
Suns will pass on trading Gortat and Dudley, even when their values are at the highest, because the front office still feels that they are good enough to get their beloved 8th seed. Gortat leaves the Suns when his contract expires, and Sarver loves Babby and Blanks' committment to going for the 8th seed he gives them a 4-year extension.
Suns "Kendall Marshall" their 10th pick by taking Michael Carter Williams, who will battle Kendall Marshall for the back-up spot.
Suns get another late lottery pick from the 2013-14 season, and another late-lottery pick from the 2014-15 season, and the cycle goes on.
Oh wait you asked for a bold prediction?
