2009 NBA Season

The 2009 NBA Season will be here in a month and I would like to do a write up on every team and let you know what I think about them before the season starts. NBA predictions are harder to make than other sports leagues because the play of one or two people means so much more to that team than in other sports. I’ve heard teams three or four best players count for about 80% of their wins, this seems to make sense to me. I could see this last year when the Wizards lost Gilbert Arenas and went from a mediocre playoff team to the bottom three of the league. So that is why predicting the NBA season can be difficult, you also don’t know how many minutes certain players are going to get. But all excuses aside I’m going to give it a shot.

2009-10 NFL Predictions!

Well howdy folks! I haven’t posted in a while. This is mostly because the NBA and NCAA basketball seasons ended and I don’t follow baseball much. But no we are less than a week away from football season! I don’t know about you but I am pumped. With this in mind ESPN has released it annual ‘experts trying to predict the up-coming NFL season’ article. Gotta love them ‘experts.’ I love how most of them pick almost the exact same thing to happen as last year. Talk about in depth reporting. But who am I to judge? The best I can do is offer my thoughts, maybe I’m right. I’m going to try to do this in the same straight forward format that they used.

I feel that’s probably all I need to say. I could go into all these reasons why I felt this way or that on different teams. But really anything can happen. My opinions above are really just gut feelings, hopefully they’ll work out well. They probably will actually, or at least that’s what the book Blink by Malcolm Gladwell tells me (Read it, it’s good). There you have it, the NFL season EXACTLY AS IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. No need to tune in.
