Predictions

  • Ray Allen gets traded back to Boston at halftime
  • KG screams a few times
  • Shaq uses his place on the pregame show to promote his lame jewelry line
  • Peace leads the Lakers in scoring
  • It takes me a quarter and a half to figure out who is on the Mavs this season
  • Warriors by 1
