“Pascal Siakam. Most Improved Player this year and he’s going to be the man in Toronto” – Shelburne

Recommends

Caesars: Bucks & Sixers have best odds to make playoffs

East team most likely to underachieve?

Andrews: Miami Heat
“They’ve had a lot of moves that they have made, they added Jimmy Butler and Jimmy and Co know that he has to be successful not only on the court, but in the locker room this season. He has to be a culture setter down there”

Shelburne: Toronto Raptors

McMenamin: Brooklyn Nets
“They have so many different pieces and obviously, they don’t have Kevin Durant next year”

West team most likely to underachieve?

Image

Shelburne: Los Angeles Clippers & Utah Jazz
“Even though they earned it by their offseason, let’s see it on the court first”

Andrews: San Antonio Spurs
“They’re working to find their post-Big 3 identity there”

McMenamin: Golden State Warriors
“You lose Kevin Durant. That’s the major adjustment for any franchise to go through”

Team most likely to overachieve?

Image

Andrews: Oklahoma City Thunder & New York Knicks
“They can raise from the ashes like a Phoenix. If Chris Paul stays, then were talking about a completely different team. They’ve been there and have that experience”

“I really like Mitchell Robinson and some of the pieces that they have. They have a nice, young team”

Shelburne: Charlotte Hornets
“I think Terry Rozier steps right into that role. Nobody is picking them. They were there for a while. Terry is a guy with a lot to prove”
