Um, yes, a mixture of formula SportsCastr.
Follow me on Twitter and one of the perks of following me on Twitter I'm going to do right here.
I'm just gonna share the stream real quick.
Share it on Twitter, popping up right here.
And just like that, it has tweeted is crazy to me every single time I'm like, All right, let me show us on Twitter rope.
What? Boom! 10 seconds later, is there? Um, that's it.
It's, like insane how everything is linked up stuff a technology, but, um, makes your phone male SportsCastr from your twitter.
She notified twice every time uploading because lately guys have just been really watching enjoying my videos, which I just love to see.
So yeah, if you want to know about him, if you want to know what's going on When where? Why? Um yeah, make sure to follow me on both those platforms and I'll definitely let you know and, um ah, few things before we get this video started behind me, like right over here where I'm pointing it.
Pride looks so weird.
Over there is because my window was open and the song is like, that's such a weird angle.
Like I put my face like this, and I'm getting really just destroyed a some light, but but my window open, piston.
I say I You know how I would have liked to have some natural light? Um, So, um, I was gonna do it my normal set up, but it's just kind of flipped around.
Usually, I sit in the chair and have a computer on this table, but, um, now sitting on the table and, um, the computer's on the chair and usually when I'm fired up, I use the table because I'm not gonna lean back, rock back and forth.
But what I'm like, show like, need some back support.
So yet today we're gonna be going over.
Oh, my goodness.
I almost just fell backwards and I hit my foot trying to keep myself Oh, my goodness. Heart.
And also, I have not seen the, um the new like SportsCastr video.
It's like the interactive, like update or something.
But I'm gonna gonna get to that.
I'm gonna watch that tonight.
Definitely interested to see what's going on because yeah, um, you know, anything that affects SportsCastr effects may, because I'm on this 45 times a week.
Just another reason you should follow me consistent up loads.
But, um, let's up into these, eh? NBA Western Conference, Fine.
Western Conference standing predictions.
So we'll go from number 15 to number one, the number one team in the conference.
So at number 15 this shouldn't come a cz shock to anybody.
I think just about everybody thinks his team sucks.
Um, Phoenix Suns.
I like Devin Booker, man, you know DeAndre and had a good rookie season, but But they draft.
Justin Jackson was like the number seven pick.
I mean, they're the sons, man.
It's It's gonna be a while before they improved.
You know, maybe they can be taken, go off this year and go for the 13 seed.
Who knows? But I think Sunday come in last place in the Western Conference in the spot above them, I got the Memphis Grizzlies now led by John Durant.
There's not a lot of talent on that team outside of you know, John, not a lot of not a lot of names on that team.
You know, I think Jae Crowder might be there, but, like, I really don't know anybody on the team.
So not a lot of star power there.
Um, they could be the 15 seed.
I feel like Phoenix and Memphis could go like, either way.
I think John Rand's gonna be a great player, but just not yet.
This team is not gonna be good.
This here? Um, now to number 13 in the Western Conference.
We have Chris Paul led Oklahoma City thunder.
Um, you know, they just kind of under one to rebuild the season.
He's got rid of their core, got rid of Westbrook, uh, got rid of Westbrook, which is pretty sad.
Honestly, because you know, Westbrook, he just seemed like the ultimate team guy.
I'm honestly happy that they traded him.
I'm sure a lot of people are because you could just say it's happened to so many people.
Just great players have the career waste away on bad teams.
You don't want to see that happen to a generational talent like Russell Westbrook and they traded Paul.
George has got rid of, like, the whole corps, just completely resetting.
Um, it's an interesting move.
Sometimes you said to reset, so maybe they'll be good and hates.
Say this for okay.
See, fans, maybe they'll be good, you know, four or five years where I'm gonna be bottom dwellers for the next four or five years.
But maybe if you can hit on a few of those draft picks um, shy guild, just guilty, Alexander can develop the way they want himto I mean, who knows, but okay.
See, they definitely potential in the future with all those picks.
But under one, a big rebuild this summer.
So don't expect them to be a good team, not to the San Antonio Spurs at spot number 12.
The Spurs are, um, parent, interesting team because they have some talent. Don't get me wrong.
They have talent.
Um, but there's just the Western Conference is pretty good there, really only up to Rosen, and I think the recipes seem they're just better than them.
I just don't think the Spurs are really a good team.
I'm saying they're going around 35 40 wins this season.
Which, um, I think it's gonna be a very good West this season.
Um, it's gonna be close.
I mean, I think one through really, like, four.
They're gonna be kind of set the whole year, but that, like, five through 10 I think they can finish within, like, 67 games of each other.
So, um, I got Santonio sitting down at number 12.
Now we move up a spot to number 11.
A very interesting team.
The Minnesota Timberwolves, the Timberwolves.
My goodness, I don't know.
I'm just like, talking high or something.
Like my voice is high.
I have, like, a voice crack of really two seconds.
I can tell like I feel like I'm speaking in like, a high voice.
I don't know what's going on, but number 11 were the Minnesota Timberwolves, And two rolls are an interesting team.
Coral Anthony towns is obviously the best player, and they also, um, have some, like role players on the team.
But there's really no like recognition outside of towns.
You don't really know anybody into role of that side of town outside towns.
Um, I really just know Covington That's just used on the Sixers.
Like Josh Okah, G o g.
I don't know what it was, but, um, the Timberwolves, I think they're gonna be a good team.
That's not know. They're not gonna be a good team.
This you're not going to be a place.
They're gonna be the 11 seed.
I don't think they're gonna be as bad as some people think.
I think they're gonna be the number 11 team.
And I think Karl Anthony Towns is going to have a huge your guys as I own.
Plug my phone, not a number 10.
And this is where things can really change.
Things can really, um, like, rattle around with, um, all these Eastern Conference conference, Um, you know, just clothes, records.
Same out of winds.
Like, I think from number 10 number five.
They can really shuffle around if one team is big year.
One team was down here, but what I'm predicting at number 10 at the New Orleans Pelicans, there's a lot of hype surrounding them.
this season with three, um, supposed to be very good young players and Ingram, Alonso and Zion.
So if those three can develop and become the players, they really want them to, we could be looking at a pelican's dynasty.
But that's prime.
Not gonna happen this season.
Um, you know Zion, still a rookie.
He is like a grown man, but he's a rookie.
He's still, um, not played an MBA regular season game yet.
And, um, there's a nice role players on the team.
Lonzo, though, has never proven to be consistent as Brad Angle.
So they also have Jackson.
Hes so a lot a lot of young town on that team.
I'm not knocking them all, but I mean you can.
A lot of people out there are expecting Lonzo to become, you know, 15 points per game.
Tennis is seven rebounds.
Um, you know, like shooting 39 40% from three this season.
Like that's just not gonna happen.
Brandon Ingram is not just gonna develop into a 20 point for Dean, um, star in just this offseason like it's gonna take time with this New Orleans team.
That's where they also um, they also have some veterans like Drew Holiday.
What I think is poised for another good season. And J.
Red****, my boy, I got Akeem Hex in this eight weeks so on, my boy, J. J. Red****.
Hold on, guys. I'll be back in a second.
Just wait, My boy.
I have the jersey.
I love this jersey.
But this is outdated now, not just because of Red****, because the six or City edition stuff if they change the six years to Ah, Philip, I guess.
What? I'm still be wearing this jersey because it's just a cool jersey, man.
I love this jersey.
I got this for, like, a discount.
Um, I forget what it was, but I definitely got a discounted, Um, as mostly why I got it.
I would have never gotten You know, I know enough about sports and basketball to know that.
Never get a player's jersey on one year deal.
But guess what I did because J.
He's just one of those dudes that, like, he's he's not.
He's gonna get cheered me, comes back to Philadelphia.
It does not happen a lot.
Ladies and gentlemen, take it from me.
It does not happen a lot.
People get cheered when they come back.
But J J Well, fan favorite I love.
All right, so now we're back to the predictions, as you can see, my red jersey right there on the court.
I'm pointing to lead nowhere.
Right there in that quarter did.
It's so weird because, like, if I'm actually pointing to it on the screen on pointing right here, but to make you guys see it, I'm pointing, like right there, which is just like at nowhere.
But Mom at number nine, I have the Dallas Mavericks just missing out on the playoffs.
Um, KP is gonna be good this year.
Um, Don **** is gonna be good this year.
I think the Mavericks are gonna have a good season.
I'm comparing them.
Comparing them to the last season.
Um, they're a good team.
They almost made the playoffs.
The Sacramento Kings last year finished with a better record than Los Angeles Lakers.
That's just a little crazy.
But Dallas, I compare them the King's last year.
They're on the verge of making the playoffs.
And speaking off the Kings are the Kings in the eight seed this year, but Dallas, I can see them sneaking into a playoff spot next year.
So, yeah, compare them to the 18 19 Sacramento Kings with two very good young players that have yet to really prove themselves over years of it to be really perennial All Star type players, but could get to that point.
And as the sun is moving, guys looks like on the middle, like space or something. Let's see.
I can fix this, all right? Kind of change up the angle a little bit because the sun is just going crazy right now.
Look, it's my fan, all right? I always have the fan on about you guys.
It really doesn't matter.
Where's whether it's like summer winter.
I always have the fan on, but, um, so on number eight Sacramento Kings, we went over the number seven.
This is gonna come as a surprise.
Some people, the Portland Trail Blazers.
I don't really think they're a great team.
I love Nicole and I like that team, but it's just at some point you gotta You gotta really do something in this league.
You can't just tread water and be 34 seeds over and over and never really go anywhere in the playoffs.
At some point, you gotta make a move whether to just restart it or to make a move that's gonna push you over the top.
And, um, I feel like they tried to do that this offseason.
Acquiring his son would side.
But acquiring Hassan Whiteside.
That's really not going to get you too far.
I mean, he's a good player.
He's gonna help their team male.
But he's not giving you that extra push to get you over the Clippers, the Lakers, those kinds of teams.
So Portland, I think it's time for them to pull a, uh, pull.
Okay, see and start to rebuild.
But who knows, man? Maybe Lillard conniving envy PCs.
And maybe Damien Lord could go off this year.
And that's where the only way.
See, the only way I see Portland getting a four above sea it is if Damian Lillard has an M V P type season Now in number six, we have the Golden State Warriors.
The Golden State Warriors are a, um, interesting interesting group.
Um, they got curry. Russell.
They got Clay Thompson may be coming back us here.
I think a good pickup for them, which nobody talks about, is Willie Cauley Stein to be There's a rim protector.
Um, but the Warriors is the six seed.
I just don't think there's too much to say.
They're not at that really next level like they were before it.
Let me just mention this.
Sun's moving like every second.
All right? Oh, okay.
But the Warriors, I don't think they're a great team.
I think their playoff team, I think they're a good team.
I think Russell and Career gonna put up and be not MVP type, but very good numbers this season.
I think of Clay Thompson could come back at the end of the season.
This team might be able to make it to the Western Conference finals.
Um, I don't really think they're good enough to make it, um, through the first round.
Um, now we moved in number nine.
Excuse me. The Utah Jazz.
Utah Jazz had a very good all.
She's acquiring Bo John Bogdanovich through free agency.
Um, crap through my thinking of Mike Conley.
Gerrit Cole is unfair.
Astra's ready drops, filthy knuckle curve and slider to strike out Aaron.
Judge, I think the actors are waiting in that game, Man thinking 11 in Yankee Stadium.
Um, I mean, whoever takes two of the next I mean, obviously, whoever takes the next somebody takes the next three, it's over.
But whoever takes to win next three, which I don't think this year is gonna be over after five.
Um, they're gonna win.
I think there are much improved team.
I think they might struggle in the beginning with some new players, new rules.
But eventually I think the buckle things down, I think, will become a very good defensive team.
And I think the key to them moving over teams like the Warriors and Travelers in the standings, which I think they'll dio.
Is Donovan Mitchell becoming Maur efficient? Yes, he has been great.
Over his 1st 2 seasons, he has been averaging a ton of points.
10 of us is putting up highlight reel, please.
But you look at the field option justice.
It's not there, it's not ideal.
So Utah, I think that take them to the next step. The next level.
Donovan Mitchell really has to start shooting better percentage from field.
Now we moved a number four.
The Houston Rockets, Houston Rockets.
They're gonna struggling, beginning to two bold, dominant players.
Very bold, dominant players.
But they'll definitely figure things out there.
Stars always tend to make things work.
So, um, Houston, I don't think they're as good as the team's about them.
But I think they're better than teams below them.
So I definitely think there top four seed in the West.
I don't think they go below.
That is not a good room protector in Clint Capela.
In a lot of role players, three point shooters, that can really help.
Ah, Westbrook and hard.
Now, um, I would I see what this team just a lot of pick and roll driving kick.
Um, I think you can, You might see James Harden actually shooting some more spot up shots this season is gonna be very interesting to see who really that make this point guard who make the point guard on this team because, well, he's listed as a shooting guard.
Um, Hard was the point guard on that team.
He brought the ball up. He was the one distributing.
He was the one dribbling.
And Westbrook is also that time, so we'll figure it out.
They'll see how it goes.
Um, now in number three, the Denver Nuggets.
I think they're gonna have another great season this year.
I'm a big fan of their team. I think they're deep.
I think they have a young core.
I think they're gonna improve this season.
So, um, not too much say they're I think they're better than Houston, at least about a regular season team than Houston.
I think yoke, it's gonna have another great season.
Not better than indeed.
Yokich is not a better player than than being just for the record, but, um, then, But I think they're gonna have another good season in the three seats now to the top two.
It's between the Lakers and the Clippers, and you know, I won't sit number two team up, Say, then I'll discuss number two team.
But I will say the number one who's who I think will have the better season.
The Los Angeles Lakers um, Anthony Davis Pride could be about to start the season.
I think that's gonna hurt them a little.
But the Clippers there also doing with some I wouldn't say injury issues, but the Clippers, they're definitely gonna have, you know, plans for PG and CO y to play, you know, limited games, Um, in this season.
So, um, I think that's gonna be an interesting concept to see if the Clippers kind of hold those two back because they're not just pushing for this year.
I mean, they got both these guys for the next three years.
Um, so it's some.
It's gonna be interesting to see if they hold these guys back in the beginning of the season.
Um, or just throughout the season, that may comply in March, April trying to fight for that one seed.
But I think the Lakers were gonna finish on top because, you know, I think the Clippers are going to do a lot with, um, you know, benching PG and CO y, um, for just injury issues.
They might miss 15 20 games this season.
Um, I think Hawaii miss, like, 18 games last season, and I think PJ come out the shoulder surgery.
Um, they're gonna do the same thing with him, too.
So number one, the Los Angeles Lakers, obviously a huge move, acquiring Anthony Davis this off season, and I think that's gonna be what pushed them over the top from what pushed them from a non playoff team to a onesie.
The healthy LeBron getting some of those young players out, which, you know it's not a good thing for the future, But sometimes you just gotta think you can't always be stuck in the middle of trying to develop and trying to one at the same time.
They just went for it.
They're trying to win, and I love the move.
And that's why I think the Lakers will be the number one seed in the West this season.
