5 bold predictions to monitor for the 2020-21 NBA season

The 2020-21 NBA season is right around the corner and this season will be quite different than past years. Not only will there be 72-games in the regular season, but there are so many question marks about what will happen over the course of the season with COVID-19 protocols and players that test positive for the virus since it is inevitable that many players, coaches and staff members will test positive. 

Not only will most arenas have no fans in the stands, but the schedule for this season has also changed as there will be no All-Star weekend and travel throughout the year may become restricted to only certain areas. While the season is a go and the NBA has full confidence in their plans they have enacted, nobody really knows what to expect due to the times we currently live in.

One thing we do know is that this season will be just as competitive as past years and numerous teams will be fighting for the rights to be called NBA Champions. The Lakers will be in pursuit of their 18th championship in franchise history, which would make them the franchise with the most championships in NBA history, as they look to repeat as champions this upcoming season. 

Others like the Clippers, Nets, Nuggets, Pacers and Suns look to not only make the playoffs, but win their franchise’s first title in team history. Who knows what this season holds though, as plenty of teams could make their case as being legit championship contenders. 

With the 2020-21 NBA season set to begin on December 22, here are my Top 5 bold predictions for the upcoming season.
