NBA 2015-16 Season Preview & Projections

My beloved NBA is back again! This year is sure to be another entertaining & drama filled year as many teams now have new faces to try to compete for the coveted trophy. The Warriors are the defending champs and kept the same nucleus that features the “Splash Brothers” Klay Thompson and reigning MVP Stephen Curry. The Thunder welcome back KD after a season riddled with injury. The Thunder also have a new head coach Billy Donovan from the University of Florida. OKC has very high expectations and playing in the west is no cakewalk. Lebron came back to Cleveland to win a ring but last year injuries to Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving really limited the help Lebron had. With Kevin Love healthy and Kyrie on the mend The Cavs are poised to return back to the big dance. The Miami Heat look like a very intriguing “powerhouse” in the East. With young Hassan Whiteside anchoring the defense and a healthy Bosh and Wade along with Goran Dragic the Heat should compete for top honors in the East.
