    Okay, so I guess it’s the time of year to do this again. The season has snuck up quickly this year! So here it is, year 9 of The Season Predictions Game!! Last year: https://www.nbadraft.net/forums/topic/2020-2021-season-predictions-game/

    The basics are:
    -Predict the rankings of each division from 1 to 15.
    -3 guesses each for NBA awards (with your most likely option first)
    -3 guesses each for each stat category leader (with your most likely option first)

    Scoring for rankings:
    -5 points for guessing the correct ranking of a team
    -3 points if your predicted ranking is one off from their actual ranking
    -1 point if you predicted if the team was in the playoffs or not correctly (we’ll just say top 8 as I don’t wanna deal with that play in tournament thing they are talking about)

    Scoring for awards/stats:
    -5 points if your first pick was correct
    -3 points if your second pick was correct
    -1 point if your third pick was correct

    Predictions and changes to your predictions can be made up until tip off of the first regular season game.
    I’ll put mine out here soon and then everyone can use that format after (would make my life easier if you did haha)

    Actually, let me swap out Drummond for RPG; for some reason I thought he was somewhere other than Philly. I’ll go:

      I know Charlotte will at least be in the play ins but I really can’t tell who wont. Raptors look good this year and I would like to have them higher as well but Barnes Achiuwa are still very raw. Horford schooled them in the preseason and it was very clear the vets will have their way with them.
