2009-10 GM Predictions


2009-10 GM PredictionsI’m convinced that the NBA’s General Managers have a pool going. They each put in five bucks (or something more substantial since they’re all paid pretty well) and at the end of the year they divvy up the pot to the GM that guessed correctly most often. There has to be a reason that they vote every year on which players, rookie and teams will be the best in the league. Gambling actually is probably not involved, but I’d like to think that it is. Just makes me feel better.

In any case, you can go here, here and here to see the results for yourself, but here are some of the most notable ones.

NBA Champions: L.A. Lakers
Eastern Conference Champs: Boston
