In a Q&A interview with Adam Caparell of Complex, ex-NBA Nick Young, who last played for the Denver Nuggets, discussed lots of topics, including his predictions for the upcoming season:
If you have one crazy NBA prediction for the season what would that be?
I will say either New Orleans making the eighth seed or Denver not making the playoffs.
I don’t think the Warriors going to make it this year. If they do, it’s the eighth seed.
Denver was the No. 2 seed last year in the West. To have them go from the No. 2 seed and to not making the playoffs this season that’s a hot take.
That could be. They’re scared of the Lakers, they’re scared of LeBron. Every time Denver played LeBron, and they get killed. They’re going to be scared of the Clippers.
