it is still pretyt early to be making fearless predictions(or any predictions for that matter) that be said, lets do it anyway!


MVP Candidates:
KG (watch for him to increase his ppg this year "I know you aint questioin my hunger!")
Duncan (until he gets a team around him, and tony parker speedy claxton and malik rose are NOT a team, he should be a continual MVP candidate)
TMac (hill or no hill, i expect him to just keep getting better)
Pierce (will lead league in scoring)
Marbury (yeah i know, but im predicting 25 and 8 and playoffs for the Suns because the west is gonna magically go to including ten teams in the playfoffs and the east is only gonna put in 6)

Fearless Prediction: Pierce, even with walker on his team, he is definitely the go to man and i think he might average close to 30 7 and 5 next year.

MIP Candidates:
Olowokandi (improved lots this season, has a very good low post game developign and will be a defensive anchor for the clipps)
Ricky Davis (21.6 ppg over the final 13 games of last season, im not execting Tmacs first year in orlando but around 20ppg wouldnt surprise me)
Qrich(he improved alot this year but hell keep getting better and better, should be the clipps number 1 offensive option soon)
Tim Thomas (just throwin him in, hell probably be in this category his entire career, but with big dog in trouble maybe hell get some shine next year)

Fearless Prediction: Kandi man, by the narrowest of margins over ricky davis.

6th Man of the Year Candidates:
MJ (said he wants to come off the bench, if he does is there anyway hew doesnt get this award??)
Terrel Brandon (also wants to come off the bench, but with billups gone hell probabyl start still so scratch him probably)
Adrian Grifin (depends on what theyre doing down in dallas, he could start, but he is a great player off the bench for them, can defend and score some.)

Fearless Prediction: MJ, if hes healthy and comin off the bench then this is his award.

Defensive Player of the Year Candidates:
KG (hes always mentioned here, but always someone better, if he doesnt get MVP he could take this one)
Ben Wallace (leading the league in blocks and rebounds again will be a challenge but he could definitely do it)
Theo Ratliff (if he ever gets healthy hes one of the best shotblockers in the league)
Kobe Tmac or Pierce (yeha i just needed someone who was a perimeter defender, bout time kobe or tmac stepped up and played some jordanesque D!)

Fearless Prediction: KG gets shut out of MVP, but takes home this one.)



Coach of the Year Candidates:
Alvin Gentry (clipps shoudl be playoff bound, so yeha he could get it)
Sidney Lowe (he coaches memphis right?? they shoudl improve next year so yeah he gets a mention)
Jim o Brian (gets some recognition for celtics turnaround)

Fearless Prediction: Jim o Brian, celts will be number one in the east next ear behind MVP Pierce and o brians tough defensive philosophy.



thats all from me, what are your Fearless Predictions??

I don't know if you caught this or not but the celts and nets are in the same division and can't get the #1 and 2 seed in the east. btw detroit will be better than the 5th seed.

I don't know about most of them

but I think the MVP will go to either Kobe or Shaq. I see two scenarios that can happen in LA next year. First, Shaq could come back healthy and with a vengence. He could easily score 35 a night if he wanted to. Or he could come back out of shape because he couldn't work out all summer, and not have the fire he's had before. He seems to be focusing too much on what he does after he retires, the whole police thing, and if that's the case, then Kobe will have to step up, and he's fully capable of doing so. With an improved George, Kareem Rush shooting from the outside, and Shaq still taking up space he should be able to dominate if he gets about 5 or more of Shaq's shots a game.

1st Team NBA
C Shaq (MVP)
F Duncan
F Carter (will reclaim all the lost hype)
G Bryant
G Kidd

2nd Team
C-F Nowitzki (that's what he was listed as this year)
F Garnett
F T-Mac (do back problems ever 'really' go away)
G Pierce
G Miller (stats won't be great, but the clip's will improve with him at the helm [how's that for fearless])

DPOY- Duncan
ROY- Tskitishvili- seemingly out of nowwhere, puts together a monstrous season, a la Gasol, prompting 17 year old yugoslavian phenom Darko Milivic to enter the draft, where he is taken #1 by the Cleveland Caveliers, to a thundering of boos the like of which has never before been witnessed.; he is swiftly traded for 2nd Team NBA Andre Miller.
MIP- Mo Pete

Eastern Conference (it's a crapshoot. I see a logjam of teams hovering in the mid 40's.)
1. Toronto- 48 wins
2. New Jersey 46 wins
3. Charlotte (with 2nd best record) 47 wins
4. Orlando 44 wins
5. Boston 44 wins
6. Milwaukee 43 wins
7. Detroit 42 wins
8. NY 42 wins

I think Toronto will win the east in the playoffs as well

Western Conference
1. Lakers- they were more worried in this year's playoffs than they would care to admit. They don't want to go to Sac-town for another game 7, so they'll be determined to win home court this time around. 60 wins
2. Dallas- they'll be fighting for home court advantage with SA. 54 wins.
3. Sacramento- 58 wins
4. San Antonio- 54
5. Clips- 52 wins- Andre Miller will finally make them legit
6. Minnesota- 50 wins
7. Houston- 48 wins- NOT because of Ming, but because these guys had a good team last year before injuries.
8. Utah- a MIRACLE- 46 wins

In the playoffs, I see...

LA vs LA in the second round, with the Lakers winning in 7, after which Rick Fox declares "we weren't worried for a second" after which Fox is traded to Cleveland

Sac vs LA in the finals, with LA winning in 6.

Finals
LA vs Tor- LA sweeps.

Remember, there is no "Charlotte." That should be "New Orleans."
