We know the upcoming NBA season is going to be an exciting one. The hard part is predicting how it all will play out and which elite players will separate themselves from the pack.
We're asking you to make your predictions for all of the major individual awards and to pick the leaders in each of the major offensive statistical categories. What say you, Nostradamus?
Russell Westbrook took home last year's MVP after in an insane season that saw him average a triple-double. This year's Rookie of the Year race looks to be a major improvement over last year's, which Malcolm Brogdon won. Giannis Antetokounmpo's massive leap into stardom made him into last season's Most Improved Player. Last season, Westbrook led the league in scoring (31.6 PPG), Hassan Whiteside in rebounding (14.1 RPG) and James Harden won the assist crown (11.2 APG).
