Memphis Grizzlies Vice President of Basketball Operations John Hollinger predicted that the San Antonio Spurs would make it to the NBA Finals. However, this was done back in October when he was still working for ESPN. He did not realize that it would be his current employer, the Grizzlies, who would end up getting swept by the Spurs in the Western Conference Finals.
Luckily, Hollinger had a sense of humor about the whole thing.
