We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of You’re Ducking Right. On June 4th, 2017 the first post was made. Many predictions have been made, some right, some wrong.
We’re rapidly approaching the NBA’s off season with only the Raptors vs Warriors finals standing between us and the free agency frenzy awaiting the league.
Before we get to the annual free agency prediction article, lets review how we’ve done in the past. We went back and reviewed the 25 free agency predictions for the summer of 2017 in the NBA, the summer of 2018 in the NBA, and then this spring’s NFL free agency movement.
So how did we do?
Overall, we’ve got 33 wins, 106 losses, and 12 ties (guys that haven’t signed with anyone yet). That’s a .239 batting average, good enough to start in center field for the Red Sox.
In 2017, of the 25 predicted landing spots for NBA free agents, we hit on 8 and missed on 17.
In 2018, of the 25 predicted landing spots for NBA free agents, we hit on 9 and missed on 16.
And in the spring, we tried predicting 101 landing spots for NFL players. Of those we nailed 16, missed on 73, and there are still 12 guys floating in the wind.
All that adds up to a giant, what the DUCK where was I thinking?!?! But alas, its time to beat our heads against the wall again. Look for our predictions on where this exceptionally large free agent class ends up. And with the large class, we’ll be doubling down and doing more than just 25 predictions, because you, our reader, deserve more (ammunition to make fun of us).
So check back soon, and enjoy the NBA Finals, and Stanley Cup finals in the meantime!
