So VERY Wrong

TheLongTalk made some PreSeason NBA Predictions (Scroll down and you’ll see the post) about the final standings for all 30 teams… and man, was TheLongTalk ever WRONG…

East Prediction / East Reality

Celtics / Bucks
Raptors / Raptors (1 of 5)
Pacers / Sixers
Bucks / Celtics
Sixers / Pacers
Wizards / Nets
Cavaliers / Magic
Hornets / Pistons

Knicks / Hornets
Heat / Heat (2 of 5)
Pistons / Wizards
Nets / Hawks
Magic / Bulls
Bulls / Cavaliers (I thought they’d pull together a “Screw You James” season and try and prove that they weren’t all a bunch of bums)
Hawks / Knicks

West Prediction / West Reality

Golden State / Golden State (3 of 5)
Rockets / Nuggets
Jazz / Portland
Thunder / Rockets
Pelicans / Jazz
Spurs / Thunder
Nuggets / Spurs
Grizzlies / Clippers

Portland / Kings
Lakers / Lakers (4 of 5)
Wolves / Wolves (5 of 5)
Mavs / Grizzlies
Suns / Pelicans
Clippers / Mavs
Kings / Suns

Looks like the predictions were a little better in the West… but only a little… though picking the Lakers to finish 10 feels like a pretty big deal… who else would’ve picked them at 10 after they grabbed LeBron… so that’s sort of a win… sorta…

The moral of the story is, DO NOT TRUST TheLongTalk to call anything in advance… or even at the moment… or anything at all.
