The NBA is back. The Cleveland Cavaliers -- yes, it really happened, Cleveland -- are defending NBA champions. Kevin Durant -- yes, it really happened, everybody -- is on the Golden State Warriors.
It's time to ask:
Our 28 experts made their predictions, and only three of them picked against the Warriors: two votes for the Cavaliers and one for the Los Angeles Clippers. The San Antonio Spurs won 67 games last season, and according to our East and West summer forecasts, San Antonio is the only team other than Cleveland and Golden State that is predicted to win more than 52 games.
You probably don't need a refresher, but just in case: In last season's NBA Finals, the Cavs came back from 3-1 down to claim the first title in franchise history.
