With less than a month remaining in the 2013-14 NBA regular season, there's still much to be decided.
Sure, either Kevin Durant or LeBron James will assuredly be named the league's Most Valuable Player in May. And, yes, the San Antonio Spurs appear to be cruising toward the league's best record, thereby locking up home-court advantage throughout the playoffs (and the NBA Finals, if they get that far).
Beyond that? Playoff seedings and award races are still ripe for the taking.
Based on that uncertainty, I've concocted 25 bold predictions for the final few weeks of the regular season, presented in no particular order. None of these predictions are the most likely outcome (hence, "bold"), but all remain within the realm of possibility.
In other words, "KD will win MVP" is not eligible for inclusion here. Neither is "Evan Turner for Most Improved Player."
Read on to see how the playoff races in both conferences and voting for major awards will shake out, along with a few other surprises scattered throughout.
