Tuesday Round-Up: Seahawks Players Make Their 2017-18 NBA Champion Predictions

Seahawks players made their predictions for who they think will win the 2017-18 NBA Finals.

Good morning, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Tuesday, October 17 — about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Who Takes The 2017-18 NBA Title?

The 2017-2018 NBA season has arrived. 

Two games will kick off the regular season this evening with the Boston Celtics visiting Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors hosting the Houston Rockets. Tip-off for the first game of the season between the Celtics and Cavs is set for 5 p.m. Pacific.

Not surprisingly, the Warriors open the year as the favorite to repeat as NBA Champions.

With the season getting underway, I surveyed 23 Seahawks players and asked who they think will take home the Larry O'Brien trophy in June. Here are the results:
