2019-2020 NBA Predictions

Using a very complex, Steven Hawking-like formula of ranking the top ten players from each team and a couple other categories, my predictions consist of scores based off of those rankings. Note: Teams get bonuses for having one of the top 30 ranked players in the NBA. I find this exercise fun, because it can, at times, be quite unpredictable.

Picking the playoff results is tough, as well. This is the most wide open the NBA has been in quite a while. This should be a fantastic season!
