In episode 108 of the Red Rock Fantasy Basketball Podcast, myself, Heath Tudor (@Heath_Tudor), and Steve D’Silva (@sdsi1) cover the latest news, as well as give our predictions for the 2014-15 NBA season.
Before getting to the predictions, we talk about the injuries that have struck the Indiana Pacers including issues with George Hill and David West, the Thunder’s problems with Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb, the decisions on the Pistons and Warriors’ starting fives and the Jose Calderon injury in New York. Then, the three of us run through our playoffs projections and eventual NBA champions, All-Star teams, All-NBA teams, rookie of the year, defensive player of the year and, of course, MVP. We also attempt to predict who leads the NBA in the major statistical categories as well as give our pick for most random player who will become fantasy relevant for a stretch this season.
