Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen some interesting predictions come across my Twitter timeline. Norman Powell will average 20 points. Jonas Valanciunas won’t finish the season a Toronto Raptor. People will finally stop making “X years away” jokes about Bruno Caboclo. (Okay, maybe that last one is me wishcasting.)
It seems as good a time as any, then, here one day before the team’s first preseason game, to fire off some bold predictions for the 2017-18 season. So let’s hear ’em, the bolder the better – the nice thing here is that if you’re right, you can brag, and if you’re wrong, well, the predictions were supposed to be bold (and somewhat unlikely) anyway. No lose!
