With the NBA season tipoff a few days away, there are many storylines to watch and overly scrutinize throughout the course of the year. The Russell Westbrook-Kevin Durant bickering alone is both enough to either stay locked in to every Golden State and Oklahoma City Thunder matchup or barf at the high school-esque slandering amongst the two superstars. If that isn’t enough LeBron seems to believe every team (Warriors; cough cough) is making a team specifically geared to beat his Cavs. On one hand it’s an incredibly shallow assertion to make, on the other… hell his team did just win the whole thing. I could go on, but you get my point, the storylines are there.

Amidst all of the hooplah, I figured it’s only appropriate to make my own personal too soon playoff prediction list that the pundits can dissect all year long. If some of these are wrong, take this with a grain of salt, if they are right, you’re welcome. Feel free to inbox me 10% of your gambling winnings.
