Elite Sports NY brings you its official preview of the 2016-17 NBA season. Our staff predicted how the season will shake out.

The NBA season tips off with back-to-back games from the reigning champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the runner-up Golden State Warriors.

LeBron James and the Cavs begin their quest to repeat at home against the New York Knicks while Kevin Durant plays his first regular season game as a Warrior at home against the San Antonio Spurs.

The drama created from a wild summer will undoubtedly spill over into the regular season. It always does. We all want to see what the Warriors are capable of; the clash of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant and Dwyane Wade in a Bulls uniform. That’s happening.


The 2016-17 season is around the corner which means it’s time to preview what’s on the way. We looked at how the regular season, playoffs, and awards races would shake out.

This is Elite Sports NY’s Official 2016-17 NBA Preview.
