    I will accept your accolades and congratulations in June 2017.

    This is the year the kid puts it together.

    This is the year he shows what he is capable of.

    This is the year that he will become the third leg of a championship-caliber squad with Lillard and McCollum.

    Buckle up. It's going to be a wild ride.

    I knew we'd get posts like this once marijuana was legalized.

    I've probably made this same prediction about Meyers every year after his rookie season. Bound to be right one of these years!

    I think the same could be said of Harkless. And maybe even Crabbe.

    We have a lot of top candidates for Most Improved this year I feel.

    I will say this. Meyers will have his best year so far, but he will not win MIP

    Crabbe will take over the starting position at the 3 before midseason

    Lillard and McCollum will both have all star calliber performances this season, but only Lillard will be selected as an Allstar

    Mason Plumlee's new jump shot is going to drive opponents crazy.

    Blazers will win 57 games this season

    Shabazz Napier will play less then Roberts and Fraizer did

    Ezeli will play in 54 regular season games and be a force in the playoffs

    Blazers will make the WCF

    Terry Stotts will win coach of the year

    No, as in he's developing it for real, and he's gonna open the lane more, and force the defense to adjust

    Way better than the 23 wins prediction. Actually likely/possible to happen.

    Wow, you really believe one of the worst shooting bigs in the NBA has obtained all those skills in 4 months time?

    I think the Robin Lopez wide open "set shot" is probably a better expectation for Mason. We just need him to keep the defense honest. I think he can do that.

    Why not? This is how his FT shooting improved in the last 3 months of last season:

    February - .574 FT%
    March - .685 FT%
    April - .800 FT%

    If he can knock down a FT consistently, why won't he be able to make a 15-foot jump shot?

    Well when I play NBA2k17, I've taken a few mid range shots with Plumlee. I definitely see an improvement over his NBA2k16 performance.

    Well there you go HCP, what more proof could you possibly want? If the kid playing video games in his mom's basement says it's true, it must be true.

    I predict an increase in the swish3 and his fourth swish will be a hair swish

    I predict Devin Booker of the Suns will be MIP. Book it! Or rather Booker it!

    Mark this down. Meyers will not win any awards this season, except for maybe the cutest hair award.
