Prediction Thread... League in 5 years

Maybe do a Top 5 at each position, who wins the next 5 titles/MVPs/Other awards. and which teams win the next 5 championships.

In 5 years, top 5 at each position would be...

PG
1 - Kyrie Irving
2 - Chris Paul
3 - Derrick Rose
4 - Rajon Rondo
5 - Russell Westbrook

I don't see how Kyrie doesn't become the best point guard in the L in the next few years. Chris Paul declines a little but is still one of the top dogs. Rose would be second if it wasn't for the injury. And in the past year or so I've really grown to love Rondo's game.

SG
1 - James Harden
2 - Shabazz Muhammad
3 - Eric Gordon
4 - Dwyane Wade
5 - Bradley Beal

At 39, it might finally be quits, or at least serious decline for Kobe. He should still be able to average 20 points a game. I say Harden becomes a regular 25-5-5 player the rest of his career. Wade regresses, Gordon balls. I kind of like Bradley Beal I think he just needs to be in the right situation.

SF
1 - LeBron James
2 - Kevin Durant
3 - Andrew Wiggins
4 - Carmelo Anthony
5 - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

SF position could be pretty packed if Wiggins and Parker live up to expectations. I have Wiggins ahead of Melo, and I definitely see the potential in MKG becoming a Pippen type guy.

PF
1 - Kevin Love
2 - Blake Griffin
3 - Anthony Davis
4 - LaMarcus Aldridge
5 - Serge Ibaka

Serge Ibaka gains Ben Wallace type impact on defense, and is considered a top 5 power forward. His mid range jumpshot continues to get better.

C
1 - Dwight Howard
2 - Andrew Bynum
3 - Marc Gasol
4 - Greg Monroe
5 - DeMarcus Cousins

(not really sold on Cody Zeller, or Nerlens Noel for that matter.)

MVP
13 - LeBron
14 - LeBron
15 - Durant
16 - Love
17 - LeBron

DPoY
13 - LeBron
14 - Dwight
15 - Anthony Davis
16 - Dwight
17 - Anthony Davis

Champions
13 - Heat
14 - Heat
15 - Thunder
16 - Heat
17 - Heat

Re: Prediction Thread... League in 5 years

Why would Thunder win in 15 and why would Lebron be MVP in 17?

Lillard will be a top 5 PG in 5 years IMO.

And Marc Gasol will be a better C than Bynum.

Always thought Cousin was a PF...
