Welcome to the calm before the storm.
It's the final day before the start of the NBA regular season, so make sure to send out heartfelt apologies to your significant other, friends and/or family for the inevitable neglect over the next nine months. Go spend some extra time with them before Tuesday night's tip. They'll appreciate the gesture.
But we couldn't officially start an NBA season without some predictions. So without further ado, here are my picks for every individual end-of-season award, with some honorable mentions included. As a reminder, if a player on your favorite team isn't listed here, it obviously means I hate your team with a fiery passion.
Without further ado …
