The dawn of a brand new NBA season is upon us. In just a few days, the world’s best basketball players will put their skills on display for all of us crazy hoops fans to see. As the excitement builds up, the stars of the ongoing NCAA Season 94 Men’s Basketball tournament shared their thoughts and predictions as to which team will reign supreme.
Robert Bolick (SBU)
For the Western Conference Finals, it will be the Lakers and Warriors. The Lakers will win it because LeBron has more help and they have young tall guys who can switch and D up. They have guys who can defend. In the East, it’s gonna be either Toronto or Philly versus Boston but Boston will win it if they stay healthy. In the NBA Finals, the Lakers will win it in Game 6. Champs = Lakers.
CJ Perez (LPU)
Mahirap kasi both LA Lakers and GSW have a perfect line-up! Pero feeling ko, LA versus Boston. LeBron fan ako kaya LA syempre sila champion. Then LeBron ang Finals MVP.
Jed Mendoza (JRU)
Sa West, gusto ko Houston. Pero sa East, time siguro ng Philadephia ngayon. Pag sila naglaban sa Finals, gusto ko “Trust The Process.” Para kasi kami sila eh. “Trust The Process” kami. Ang Finals MVP dyan si Ben Simmons.
Michael Calisaan (SSC-R)
Tingin ko sa West, Lakers yan kasi tuwing napapanood ko sila ngayong pre-season, talagang sobrang lakas nila, lalo na nandun na si LeBron. Nadadala niya yung team. Mga bata pa yung mga teammate niya pero napapa-sunod niya talaga. Sa East, papasok ang Boston pero pag naglaban na sila sa Finals ng Lakers, para sa akin, Lakers kasi kumpleto sila ngayon sa piyesa. Fan din kasi ako ng Lakers.
Bong Quinto (CSJL)
Let’s go GSW! Feeling ko GSW pa din kasi syempre, medyo team na sila maglaro. Yung Lakers kasi medyo nag aadjust pa. Pero yun nga, masyadong mahaba yung season at madaming puwede mangyari. So, para sa akin, GSW and Boston lalo na sa East. Yung Boston kinapos lang nung last season pero ngayon kaya na nila basta maging healthy lang si Kyrie at Hayward. Para sa Finals MVP, this time SC30 na yan.
Ian Alban (AU)
Sa East, Boston yung prediction ko. Sa West, honestly, Warriors pa din eh. Tapos pag naglaban yung dalawa na yun, Warriors pa din mag cha-champion kasi sa chemistry eh tsaka Championship experience na din. Kasi yung Boston puro bata pa tapos si Kyrie pa lang yung may experience sa Finals. So yun. Lalaban siguro Boston pero 4-2 yun, Warriors. Gusto ko naman mag Finals MVP si Curry naman. Sana maganda yung maging performance niya sa Finals para makuha niya.
Jerome Garcia (EAC)
All the way ako, Lakers na ‘to! Lakers-Golden State sa West Finals pero matatalo ng LA ang GSW dahil kay The King! LeBron James, ‘matic yun! Tapos sa East… Philadelphia. Sa Finals, Lakers yan. Fan ako ni LeBron eh, nadagdagan pa siya ng mga Lance Stephenson tsaka feeling ko, laking tulong ni LeBron doon sa mga bata eh.
Justin Gutang (CSB)
My predictions for the NBA Finals is Warriors versus Celtics and I gotta go with the Warriors taking it home again especially with DeMarcus Cousins in the new lineup. I think their team chemistry and experience will them the series against the Celtics. Finals MVP goes to Curry this year in my prediction because whenever he is on the court, he controls the game and is able to bring the best out of his teammates… like Coach TY Tang when he played for La Salle or Rain or Shine.
Prince Eze (UPHSD)
I think in the East, the Sixers. For the West, Warriors. In the Finals, the Warriors are going to win of course because they have been together for a long time. They also have the championship mentality. The Sixers, I mean, they haven’t been to the Eastern Conference Finals before so for them to be in the Finals, it will be hard. I’m a Warriors fan and my favorite player is KD.
Lawrence Victoria (MU)
Sa West, GSW ang papasok. Sa East, Boston. Sa Finals, Golden State pa rin yan. Strength In Numbers! Para sa akin, si Thompson ang mag Finals MVP kung nagkataon.
