NBA predictions 2015-16

After a tremendous postseason, when the Golden State Warriors reigned victorious, there were still a lot of questions to be answered. What if they played the Spurs? What if Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love were all healthy? All these questions still remain. At the same time, the Warriors are getting a lot of heat from other teams that remain unconvinced that they’re the champs. A great offseason has led to some powerful additions to many teams which will make this year all the more competitive. So, here are my predictions for the upcoming NBA season:
