    Default How many games will we win next season?

    Just wanted to throw this thread up.

    I feel that the Ps will win between 45-52 games.

    Team chemistry WILL be key.

    Any thoughts?

    Is there a problem with the poll?

    If so, I can yank it. I just wanted some input.

    Arrrgh. Private poll!

    56 wins and a trip to the ECFs, possibly the finals.

    I have the same feeling abouit this team as I did going into the 2003-04 season.

    Assuming no more significant roster additions beyond Al, I'll say 44Ws as a realistic guess. Despite the influx of athleticism, I still question how the whole roster really fits together talent-wise and there will still be stability (chemistry)/durability questions.

    A sunnier, things generally work out well forecast would be 50 wins. At this point that's about as high as I can see us achieving.

    Ok, no more of what you guys call "private polls"



    Just wanted some feedback from other fans.

    Who's the nut who said 70+?

    The team is definitely going to be more fun, but I don't believe yet that we're going to do better in the win column. What we've done is make the following changes:


    Harrington for Peja

    Harrington will be a great acquisition in terms of talent, game plan and team chemistry. I support it unequivocally. It gives Danny room to develop and provides more strength at the 4. But to get Al we lose our outside shooting ace. (Here's where Jay says, "Live by the 3, die by the 3.")


    Daniels for Croshere

    This is a big gain. If Daniels starts at the 2 and gets big minutes, it will be very good. If he splits time with Jackson, it will be a marginal gain over Jones.


    White for Jones

    Is White ready to contribute as reliably as Jones at his best? I believe he has more upside, but is he going to contribute more than Freddie starting in November? Is he going to get the minutes to develop?


    Armstrong for Johnson

    I think this is a step down. Yeah, it solves the logjam at point guard. But AJ got us to 41-41 last year. If the plan is to bring in a coach to follow Carlisle, I foresee complications.


    Williams for ? (Pollard?)

    Shawne is a project. He's going to be deep in the depth chart.


    Greene for Gill

    Zzzzz.


    Otherwise, we've got O'Neal, Granger, Harrison, Jackson, Jasikevicius, Tinsley and Foster back. A couple of those will probably play better than last year. A couple of them will probably be healthier than last year, but there are no guarantees. A couple are going to be the same as last year.

    Where do the 10+ additional wins come from?
    And I won't be here to see the day

    Just for future reference, when you post a new poll, there is an option at the bottom the thread to make it a Public poll. This makes it alot more interesting as you can see what each person voted for.

    Why Not Us ?

    With AL back (yay!) we will get back some of the toughness that has been missing since Reggie AL and Ron have left. We have Granger, who has that same toughness, and if the at least one of the new guys can play like a man, we will have a great defensive team again. I'm looking forward to a 50 win season.

    I'm in the 40-49 grouping......until I see someone on this team that can actually shoot the ball, I just don't seem wins in the 50+ range. Who knows, a trade could happen tomorrow that surprises all of us.........

    I think we were one of the league leaders in losing close games last season. We'll be a 50+ win team this season.

    I voted for the lottery. Those of you who were at the last forum party will remember I said we'd win somewhere in the 40s. With what seems to have happened in the last few days I have absolutely, positively no confidence in this team.

    The only way we go to the ECF is with the help of Ticket Master.

    No way we're a lottery team, unless we're devastated by injuries.

    Well, we don't have a history of that do we?

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    46-50 We will be vying for 4-5th playoff spot I think.

    A healthier team, a more mobile and therefore happier team, a crackdown on knuckleheadedness, moderately better chemistry for no other reason than we have some different players, a less meddling/micromanaging RC, and as bulletproof said, we lost a lot of close ones last year that a better attitude and healthier team would remedy.

    All that said, I still don't feel we've dealt the cancers off this team, but even with them, I don't expect the meltdown we had last season either.
    Don't thank me, I'll kill ya.

    Yeah, but I think a lot of that came from being worn down mentally and emotionally.
