and with game predictions, its an 82 game season, every team wins game it should lose and loses games it should win over the course of a season. for example, i have no idea whats going to happen in the next game the knicks play, but overall, i can predict that they wont make the playoffs and finish below .500.

i like doing pregame analysis and just noticing general trends and other important notes (like nba.com does in its previews of each matchup), because thats more interesting and more useful.
yea i agree with "a knick fan". it's sorta pointless predicting all this stuff....its not a big deal anyways....i juss hope the knicks actually "rebuild" and get sum big men and perhaps make the playoffs sum day lol
