In August we posted our season projections:
Thus far the results have been mixed. We picked the Hawks and Knicks to make a leap and make the playoffs. Atlanta is in the mix but NY has had a slow start. We had the Sacramento Kings as a bottom playoff seed and they have started 0-5. The Cleveland Cavaliers have surprised us the most thus far out performing our projections and being in the playoff hunt.
Basketball Rehab's most controversial projection is looking strong however. We had the Golden State Warriors missing the playoffs and Zion Williamson being injury prone. Both are looking strong early on.
A reminder these are some of the reasons why we projected Golden State Warriors to miss the playoffs:
Poor Bench Play
Lack of Starter Quality Talent
Klay Thompson Injury
Defensive Drop Off
Nostradamus will be back soon to tell us more of the basketball future so stay tuned.
