JuJu Smith-Schuster has quickly established himself as one of the most likable young stars in the NFL. However, he recently tweeted out his 2019 NBA free-agency predictions for Sunday, and the WR might've just made himself some enemies.

Interestingly, JuJu isn't predicting a single top-tier free agent to land with the Los Angeles Clippers nor the Dallas Mavericks. This would certainly be a blow to the Clippers, as they've reportedly been pursuing Kawhi Leonard for quite some time.

Instead, JuJu predicts Kawhi will land with the Los Angeles Lakers, which would only add insult to injury for the Clippers. This would also give the Lakers' a trio of Kawhi, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and, if it happens, that has a chance to be the most talented "big three" ever assembled.

JuJu also predicts that D'Angelo Russell will land with the Phoenix Suns, which could finally end the team's search for a point guard.

For NBA fans looking forward to a wide-open championship race, JuJu's predictions are certainly bad news. We'll just have to wait and see whether or not JuJu was correct.
