From the front-runners to the dark horses, the WTOP Sports staff makes predictions across the league going into the 2016-17 NBA season.
WASHINGTON — Sure, sure, the NBA season has already begun. But we hung on to rolling this bad boy out until the hometown team suited up for the first time. The Washington Wizards open their 2016-17 campaign in Atlanta Thursday night and won’t play their first game at Verizon Center until next Wednesday against Toronto.
So, what should we expect from the Wiz this year? Are we in for another season where Cleveland dominates the East? Will the Warriors set another wins record? The WTOP Sports staff takes its best crack at all that, plus each person’s one bold prediction for the 2016-17 NBA season.
