Hubbard: 10 Predictions for the 2013-14 Season

vegasAlthough I wouldn’t consider myself to be a serious bettor, I do enjoy an occasional trip to Las Vegas, where the betting is legal and sometimes expensive. Vegas is the ultimate venue for those who believe they are blessed with the power of clairvoyance. Think you’re smart enough to predict the outcome of a game, or games? Sports books provide unlimited opportunity for you to prove it.

On an ideal day, I would wish for the ability to make three correct predictions. In Vegas, that is called a parlay and it pays 6-1. Hit a couple of those and you’ve got a lot of room for future error.

As our esteemed colleague Chris Sheridan has and will discover in Vegas, however, predictions – aka bets – come with a price. Hit them, and your bankroll increases. Miss them and, well, the bucks pass to the house. That makes them far more serious than predictions on this web site.

So, with that as a disclaimer, here are a few with some serious; others not so much. You can decide which is which.

HOUSTON — Adam Silver stole the spotlight from David Stern at the commissioner’s final All-Star press conference … simply by directly answering a question.

After Stern revealed that both the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets had applied to host the league’s signature event two years from now, a reporter asked a follow-up question that Stern would never in a million years have answered.

“Will New York get the game?”
