    Default What? No win predictions thread?

    I promise, I did a search. Didn't see a thread for this year. If there is one, then my apologies.


    My take:

    57 Wins and a finals appearance. I am basing this on the assumption that the team is 100% healthy and all other teams the same.

    We do one right before the regular season starts. Too soon IMO right now. But have at it.

    i will wait to give my prediction in a few weeks.

    No team is ever 100% healthy

    Yes, but injuries are rarely predictable. So when doing such things you either have to assume everyone is going to be healthy, or at least assume everyone has equal injuries. So don't get overly technical over the details.

    I started last year's, and the resounding response was that it was too early, so I was holding off this year. I was going to wait till later in prep-season to see how things are going before starting this year's.

    Jumped ahead a bit, I guess.

    My reason for assuming everyone is healthy? I'm lazy and didn't want to think about all of the ins and outs of every team.

    Realistically? I think the season shakes out thus:

    MIA wins around 60. Oden is a non factor. Beasley doesn't take advantage of this chance. Wade runs down a bit more. James has a great year and carries the team.

    In the East, IND finishes second. BKY can't hold it together health wise and is respectable but it isn't good enough. NYK goes backward from last year. Teams to watch are WAS, DET, CLE, and MIN all are much improved and will be up and comers.

    In the West, LAL has a winning record but little more than that. OKC, HOU, and LAC are top dogs. MEM, SAS, GSW are all tough. DEN might be better than expected.

    Media prediction is a safe one: PMSESPN talks obsessively about the decline of LAL, BOS, and NYK.

    Final are LAC vs IND.
