A few weeks ago I was talking to my dad and I was watching the news and then John Canzano came on. He started to say how the Traiblazers were a team that if they were lucky would get into the second round and how he didn't see them as a championship threat whatsoever. Much to my surprise my dad said he agreed with that and I immediately disagreed and on the spot made a $100 bet that they would be a top 3 seed in the Western Conference this year(I was thinking Portland, Lakers, and Thunder/Mavericks top 3). I began to think about it more and I still feel pretty confident that they can pull it off with the current roster.
My question to you: Is this a good bet from my side?
