Our Super Late and Super Micro NBA 2013-2014 Season Preview

Because Rolly and I have been really busy with other things (Rolly is busy prepping for his long-awaited Manila homecoming, while I am busy buying two kinds of nappies and milk for the kids), we haven’t been able to really dissect the coming NBA season as deeply as we want. Instead, we’ve been watching Bill & Jalen’s NBA Previews on the Grantland Network YouTubeChannel (in-between Rolly’s packing his luggage and my changing diapers), which are equal parts hilarious and serious (shout out to Clairvoyant Bill and Jalen's giving people what they want!).

So here we are, a few minutes away from tip-off, scrambling our crazy excuse for a preview! Still, I think we have some interesting things here, like LBJ winning MVP (whuuuut?!), the Clippers barging into the NBA Finals (of course), and both Rondo and Gay getting traded midseason! Yes, we can (try to) be clairvoyant, too!

Oooh!!! Here we go!!!

Rolly’s Picks
Enzo’s Picks
Kobe- He will play Christmas Day versus Miami.
Kobe- He will play Christmas Day versus Miami.
Rondo- Skip the season.
Rondo- Skip the season AND traded.
Bynum- He will play by US Thanksgiving.
Bynum- He will play by early-mid December, and then get injured again. He will return in time for the Cavs to make a push for the Playoffs.


WHO WILL BE FIRST-TIME ALL-STARS?
Rolly says: John Wall in the East and Steph Curry in the West.
Enzo says: Totally agree. Wall will be a beast this season, and Curry will finally get what is due him. Josh Smith will get snubbed again, though, and Anthony Davis might just be in consideration, too.


WILL PHILLY WIN MORE THAN NINE (9) GAMES?
Rolly says: No!
Enzo says: Evan Turner will be a stat-stuffer, but Philly will still pile up the losses.


WHO WILL HAVE THE BEST RECORD?
Rolly says: Bulls will get the best record.
Enzo says: Miami still has this. Oh, and BOO.


WHO WINS THE SCORING TITLE?
Rolly says: James Harden.
Enzo says: Kevin Durant because Westbrook is out for a month or two (or three), and then he gets traded to Houston next summer (go Rockets!!!).


WHO GETS TRADED FIRST – KOBE OR RONDO? OR THE FIELD?
Rolly says: I am picking the field, with my money on Rudy Gay or Pau Gasol.
Enzo says: Kobe never leaves LA (I didn’t say Lakers now did I?). I think Gay is good to go right now, but Toronto will pull the trigger probably before New Year’s.


WHO WILL GET MORE Ts – LARRY SANDERS OR DEMARCUS COUSINS?
Rolly says: Larry!!! He’s a bad boy!
Enzo says: Cousins!!! He’s a baby!
