The NBA free-agency period is about to begin, so it’s officially time to make some outlandish predictions that I know full well will not come true…but it’d be really cool if some of them did.
Why am I doing this? Simple…because the major networks are throwing outlandish predictions around, so why not?
Outlandish Prediction #1:
LeBron James will leave Cleveland…again.
That’s right, get those torches ready Cavs fans. LBJ was seen poolside with Kevin Love in Los Angeles and the world stopped…but the narrative was focused on the wrong player. This wasn’t a sign of Love trying to come back to Cleveland, it was about Love convincing LBJ to come to L.A.
That’s right, I don’t want to see it…and will hate it immensely…but my outlandish prediction is that LeBron James will join an aging Kobe Bryant and yes, Kevin Love, on the Los Angeles Lakers.
Please basketball Gods…don’t let this one happen.
Outlandish Prediction #2:
Dwyane Wade will stay in the state of Florida…but be wearing blue in 2015-2016.
That’s right Magic fans! Flash is coming to Central Florida in my fictional world! Wade isn’t getting max money in Miami, and yes giving him max money in Orlando is a big mistake at his age…but again…fiction. Flash could be that perfect influence on the young talent like Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo.
This would give Wade a nice change of scenery and a lower pressure situation where the success of the team isn’t all on his shoulders.
I think D-Wade would look good in blue.
Outlandish Prediction #3:
Dwyane Wade won’t be the only massive signing in Orlando. Yes, I am playing homer a bit…more homer coming.
LaMarcus Aldridge and David West will come to the Magic too. Rob Hennigan’s going to bail on his organic process and will start throwing around some cash finally. The Magic are going to make a MASSIVE turn around in the 2015-2016 season and compete for the conference with the squad Hennigan and Skiles put together.
Again…we’re living in a world of fiction.
Outlandish Prediction #4:
The Sacramento Kings aren’t trading Boogie Cousins…but are getting him help.
Eric Bledsoe is apparently a legitimate option via trade for the Kings, but they won’t stop there. This franchise is on a mission to end the joke that has been the last decade of Kings basketball and give George Karl a winner.
Jimmy Butler will sign with Sacramento as well…and in a NBA free-agency shocker, Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard will decide to leave San Antonio for California’s capital city.
That’s right, the Kings and Magic will have a shot at facing off in the NBA Finals in my fictional world that I live in.
Outlandish Prediction #5:
The San Antonio Spurs as we know them will end when Tim Duncan signs with the New York Knicks.
Phil Jackson is going to make Timmy an offer he can’t refuse and lure the Big Fundamental to the Big Apple. This move will be the icing on the cake for the Knicks rebuild as they seem to be set up to buy almost every single free agent this Summer.
In the end, this money will all be wasted because that guy named Melo is a curse on the Knicks…sorry, he is.
So now you have 5 things that you can be 100% sure will not happen this NBA free agency period.
In all seriousness though…is this really much crazier than what we see on the big networks on a daily basis?
