Season Preview: Final Standings

October 29, 2009

I asked the rest of the Paints Dudes to predict the final standings of each division and conference. I also asked them to predict the Conference and NBA Champions. The “consensus” column is approximately the average of the other opinions, ranked by division. Immediately following are the opinions of where each team will finish in the conference. Below that are our predictions for who will advance to the NBA Finals and our predictions of who will win the championship, as well as the winners of selected year-end awards. Even though this is being posted today, all of these predictions were submitted before the first tip of the first game.

Beginnings

October 28, 2009

I am starting this at the beginning of the fourth quarter of the Cavaliers and Celtics game, around 9:45 PM. The one thing on my mind is that “Sons of Anarchy” is about to start. At first I wasn’t sold on the show, I thought that a show about a motorcycle club wouldn’t really tickle my fancy. But it is much more than that; it has a strong Hamlet vibe to it. The son who has a father figure forced upon him by the mother that he cares deeply for. Needless to say, but I will say it anyway; I have been drawn in by the show. Each week I debate whether or not to watch it, but then I do and then I love it. But this is not a plug for an FX network show; this is a response to the first night of the basketball season.

For the Cleveland Cavaliers history does not matter. For a franchise that owns one division title and one Eastern Conference title, there is not much to be said about the team’s history. Sure the Cavs have come close a couple of times, and even with past franchise studs like Austin Carr, Mark Price, and Brad Dougherty, the Cavs have never been within reach of the Championship the City of Cleveland desires.
