Unsurprisingly, a huge majority – 81% visioned the Lakers as back to back Champions. The Lakers look to be the strongest team on paper in the whole league. Having two of the best players in the league and a number of nice free agency moves this offseason, they have strengthened their roster. Due to which GMs also choose the Lakers as the team which had the best offseason.

There was a clear pick for the league’s MVP. The GMs see Giannis Antetokounmpo winning the MVP for the third time in a row. The Bucks superstar just signed a super-max extension worth $228.2 Million for 5 years. If the GMs have a correct prediction, Giannis will be the first player since Larry Bird to win three straight MVP’s.

Looking into the rookies, GM’s envision the Hornets’ LaMelo Ball to win the Rookie of the Year. Tyrese Haliburton, according to the GMs getting picked by the Kings at No. 12 was the steal of this year’s draft.
