The 2015 NBA Season has started! The architecture of some teams is almost unrecognizable, while others remained quiet. This year has got basketball fans on the tip of their seats and May just can't come quickly enough. Anyway, let's get to it. Here are my 10 boldest predictions.
#10 The Oklahoma City Thunder won\'t make the Conference Finals.
With the recent emergence of Russell Westbrook, as well as a healthy Kevin Durant, the Thunder are one of the most formidable teams in the league. But they can't beat the Warriors or the Spurs. While Steve Kerr was able to enjoy immense success in his first year, it is unlikely that Billy Donovan will have the same.
Donovan's Thunder is seriously lacking in depth and an injury to either Westbrook or Durant pretty much takes them out of title contention. While they have resigned Kanter and drafted Payne, their bench simply can't compare to those of the Warriors, Spurs, or Clippers. In order to flourish this year, the Thunder will need to deepen their roster and try to get a replacement for Reggie Jackson.
