Wizards results: Most fans are confident in the team’s direction, BEFORE the first regular season game!
Earlier this week, we asked you how confident you are in the Wizards’ direction. We had OVER 300 RESPONSESSo, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BUY IN!
It goes without saying that Wizards fans are confident in the team’s direction right now. Seventy-two% of you are confident. This survey closed just before the Raptors opened their season.
I will take a deeper dive into the reasons Wizards fans were so confident, as well as the other questions from our team-specific survey which focuses heavily vaccine passports and the such. Stay tuned!
National Results: Luka Doncic is the MVP favorite, Giannis close behind!
It is not surprising that the top NBA players hail from Europe. Kidding aside, it’s not surprising that Durant, Antetokounmpo, and Doncic, the top three players in this poll are projected to be among the contenders.
Unfortunately, Bradley Beal didn’t get any votes here. However, DraftKings’ stock will be fine, at least in the short-term.
Yes, DraftKings sponsored this article.
National Results: Cade Cunningham, the ROY favourite with JalenGreen not far behind
Like the MVP question, there isn’t much of a surprise here, given that Cunningham is the top pick of this year’s draft with 31 percent of the vote.. Houston Rockets rookie Jalen Green was close behind with 28 percent of the vote.
National Results: Nets are favored to win East, Lakers for West
Like many of the national media polls, there is little surprise that the Brooklyn Nets (perhaps even without Kyrie Irving), are favored to win the Eastern Conference to face off against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Western Conference favorites in SB Nation NBA’s preseason survey.
The Milwaukee Bucks, the Eastern Conference and NBA Champs defending their title, were the second most preferred team in the East. In our survey, the West’s second most preferred team was the Phoenix Suns, the Western Conference Champions. While the national media seems to want to see a Brooklyn vs. Lakers Finals, there seems to be an appetite to see a repeat of last year’s series as well.
This is not surprising. The Wizards were tied for eighth among all national respondents. The remaining four percent chose the Bulls to win East. I guess they’re outliers.
We’ll have another survey next week to track your confidence in the Wizards, as well as other topics in and around the NBA. And if you haven’t already, click here to sign up for SB Nation NBA Reacts.
