2022-2023 NBA Predictions

Hey guys! The season is right around the corner, so predictions time!

I do my predictions differently. I rank all starters and backups by position. So 60 players per position. I also rank all head coaches. I use a 60×60 multiplication table to assign score averages. I also have a top 60 player list that gives teams “bonus” points, since the NBA is such an individual game. A team with Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid is obviously going to make a team much better.

Basically, I like to see how things turn out this way, other than just the boring “so and so team is better than other so and so team.” Things often go according to plan, but sometimes there are surprises.
