    Default Annual predict number of wins for Pacers (2008)

    I think I've done this every year. What I want is the number of wins you think the Pacers will win this regular season. Don't give me best case scenerio, or worst case scenerio, don't give me well if they stay healthy or any ifs ands or buts. Just give me a number as your best guess right now.

    I think it is really tough to predict - but I will go with

    38 wins

    35

    but a better mid-30's season than the last two.

    Well since they went 4-4 in pre-season, like that means anything, so I predict 41 wins.

    Seriously, I just feel the team has better players this year, and can improve on last years season record. We'll see.

    I have two far different numbers in my head, so I'll split the difference. 41.

    30 wins.

    No I'm not being negative. I will cherish each and every win and loss and I don't hate the team. There just isn't a lot of strong, vet talent on the team right now, that's not what they are about. This is about a restructure and rebuild into something better, and that starts at the foundation. 30 wins of that is something I can take.

    Wow we really should have bet the over/under.

    My prediction this season is 38 wins.

    If we are healthy all year we could hit 45, but I don't think we'll be healthy the whole way.

    35. Just because I said that, they're going to win at least 40. They always do better than I expect or worse than I hope.

    37 wins

    One more than last year two more will be needed to make the playoffs.

    Not to bum anyone out but my 30 comes with the history of saying 34 for last year, so maybe I'm shooting under by 2-3. We had a lot of "homers" in last years thread based on the high predictions.

    Looking at the predictions this year it's like the rough times are slowly starting to sink in for people. To get a more realistic look consider the OKC team. Rush, Hibbert, Granger, yes they are nice. But that team has Durant, Green, Mason and Westbrook and do any of you expect 38-40 wins from them?

    Hmmm... tough one... I think the season will be a lot more entertaining this year and I think we are going to enjoy watching our team play again. Still I expect our rookies to hit the rookiewall and especially Roy to get called for a lot of (rookie/fake)fouls, while our interior defense won't be much of a strength yet. We upgraded our backcourt quite nicely though and I'm feeling nice with our Centers considering I'm not expecting that much from them, except to work hard and perform to their (growing in Roy's case) abilities.

    I expect our perimeter defence to start getting a lot better, especially in the later stages of this year.

    Longterm I think we will definitely go up, for now though I'm saying an entertaining season and something like 38 wins.

    Been saying 44-38 all off-season and I see no reason to change that prediction now that the season is about to begin. I hope I'm wrong for the better.

    That was me last year. This is me this year:

    I think we'll start off pretty well but decline once the dreaded "rookie wall" hits a good chunk of our team.
