Last Friday, we released our first survey for FanPulse, a regular survey series for our NBA team blogs. The results are out and here they are below.
Clippers favorites to win the championship
The Clippers were the runaway favorites with nearly 50 percent of the vote, now that reigning NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard is in LA. The Bucks, Lakers, 76ers and Rockets were the next four teams with the highest vote totals.
Giannis Antetokounmpo expected to win MVP
The Bucks star from Athens, Greece leads the way, but Stephen Curry, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis and James Harden weren’t too far behind. Antetokounmpo was last year’s MVP and will just get better.
Europeans are taking the NBA by storm, but they haven’t really hit the Wizards. And though we love Bradley Beal, it’s unlikely that he’ll be in the conversation with the Wizards likely ending up in the lottery this past season.
That said, we do have our own European EMM-V-P in Emma Meesseman after her performances in the WNBA Finals!
IF YOU READ THIS EMMA, PLEASE COME BACK NEXT YEAR!
Most think Zion Williamson will be the Rookie of the Year, but not by ... too much?
This was a binary question where voters could pick whether the Pelicans forward will win Rookie of the Year or not. Fifty-five percent, or a small majority, thought he will do so.
I’m not sure whom people are thinking about as other NBA Rookie of the Year candidates besides Zion. But for our own selfish purposes at Bullets Forever, perhaps Rui Hachimura could make a solid case if he’s a consistent performer this season.
After all, Williamson is out for the next two months due to a meniscus injury.
