nba 07-08 predictions

I will begin this entry by stipulating that it is the kind of thing that is more fun to write than it is to read (especially for people who don't care about sports). However, a) I don't have the energy to figure out something creative today, and b) I want to get this stuff on the record before the NBA season really gets going. So that having been said, here are my predictions for the 2007-08 NBA season:

* Playoff Team

ATLANTIC DIVISION (TOTAL WINS)
Boston (60)*

Yawn.

It would be better if this was made into an episode of Sports Night.

I would like to think the Mavs will go all the way and not choke with a big lead on the series.
