Soft 7 Staff Picks For 2019 NBA Season

I blame myself for this.  I didn’t ask until it was too late.   DISCLAIMER: This may be brutal to read. So as the season starts, here is YOUR Soft 7 Staff Picks…

JUICE – MVP– Mike Conley

WEST

Playoff Seeding

  1. Warriors
  2. Thunder
  3. Lakers
  4. Jazz
  5. Grizzlies
  6. Rockets
  7. Spurs
  8. Nuggets

Conference Semis: Warriors vs. Grizzlies; Lakers vs. Rockets

Conference Finals: Lakers vs. Grizzlies

Western Conference Champion: LAKERS 

WHY?– The Grizzlies haven’t been healthy in 2 years, and with the best point guard/center combo in the NBA, they’ll beat the overconfident Warriors.  LeBron is gonna LeBron and win the West.  Rockets are overrated.

EAST

Playoff Seeding

  1. Boston
  2. Toronto
  3. Bucks
  4. 76ers
  5. Pistons
  6. Wizards
  7. Pacers
  8. Heat

Conference Semis: Boston vs. 76ers; Wizards vs. Toronto

Conference Finals: Wizards vs. Boston

Eastern Conference Champion: BOSTON 

WHY? –Boston is too good.  Toronto is underestimated.  DC will have a run, but only due to a midseason pickup down the road.

FINALS (Boston vs. Lakers)

Winner = Lakers

WHY? –LeBron ain’t letting Kyrie’s bum ass beat him.

WIC – MVP– Anthony Davis

WEST

Playoff Seeding

  1. Warriors
  2. Rockets
  3. Jazz
  4. Thunder
  5. Lakers
  6. Spurs
  7. Timberwolves
  8. Pelicans

Conference Semis: Warriors vs. Lakers; Rockets vs. Jazz

Conference Finals: Warriors vs. Rockets

Western Conference Champion: WARRIORS 

EAST

Playoff Seeding

  1. Celtics
  2. Raptors
  3. 76ers
  4. Wizards
  5. Pacers
  6. Bucks
  7. Heat
  8. Hornets

Conference Semis: Celtics vs. Pacers; 76ers vs. Raptors

Conference Finals: Celtics vs. 76ers

Eastern Conference Champion: BOSTON 

FINALS (Warriors vs. Celtics)

Winner = Warriors (in 6)

Why for all of this? Because (*The Rock’s voice)

PARM –MVP– Giannis Antetokounmpo

WEST

Playoff Seeding

  1. Warriors
  2. Rockets
  3. Thunder
  4. Lakers
  5. Jazz
  6. Nuggets
  7. Pelicans
  8. Spurs

Conference Semis: Warriors vs. Lakers; Rockets vs. Thunder

Conference Finals: Warriors vs. Thunder

Western Conference Champion: WARRIORS 

EAST

Playoff Seeding

  1. Boston
  2. Toronto
  3. Philadelphia
  4. Wizards
  5. Pacers
  6. Bucks
  7. Pistons
  8. Heat

Conference Semis: Boston vs. Wizards; Toronto vs. Philadelphia

Conference Finals: Boston vs. Philadelphia

Eastern Conference Champion: BOSTON FINALS (Boston vs. Warriors)

Winner = Boston Finals MVP = Kyrie Irving

Why for all of this? I think it is impossible for anyone to beat the Warriors after adding DeMarcus Cousins, but if any team is going to do it then it’s the Celtics.  If they are able to stay healthy then I think they have the best team in the East by far and will walk to the finals.  In the final, I think it’ll be close, but that’s a gritty Boston team that can get down and dirty with a dirty Warriors team.  Marcus Smart (edit: and Marcus Morris) won’t take shit from Draymond Green or DeMarcus Cousins.  The Celtics will be a force this year. Kyrie Irving will be the Finals MVP because he will just dominate throughout the playoffs and lead the Celtics to a NBA championship against a juggernaut in the Warriors. Giannis Antetokounmpo is winning the NBA MVP because he is due, and might be physically the best player in the NBA.  He carries his team, and the only other player you can say that about is LeBron…but he’s playing for the Lakers now, and I think that makes a difference.
