Having second thoughts, this may be a 23-25 win team. Not much different than a 27 win team, other than improving the draft pick. nerd.gif

I can rock with that. I think it's a little less on both counts, but basically you're saying the difference between Byron and a decent coach is 10-12.

I can rock with that.

28-54

A lot of unknown factors on this roster, but I think 29 is the max.
post #40 of 21988
Roster is too improved for them to be a sub 29 win team.


Russell > Lin & Price, who started 50 games at PG
Clarkson in a full year as Clarkson > Clarkson rookie year, also better than Kobe at SG just efficiency wise.
Kobe > Wes Johnson who started 59 games at SF & Ryan Kelly who started probably a dozen+ at SF.
Randle & Hibbert > Davis & Hill.

Lou Williams > Wayne Ellington
Nick Young can't be any worse than he was last year.
Bass is a push with Boozer. Boozer played extremely well, and fit with Byron. Actually I'll give Boozer the edge, but not a huge margin
Tarik Black should improve over what he was as a rookie.
If Larry Nance gets to play, better than Kelly for the simple fact that he can play defense.


An extra 1.33 wins a month on average isn't much of a stretch to me.

It's a trainwreck on defense sans Hibbert and an inefficient team on offense. We'll see though.

But they'll be relying on essentially (no pun intended tongue.gif) on two rookies to soak up minutes at important positions and an even older Kobe. I don't think it will get 21 wins ugly, but it can definitely get lower than 29 wins ugly.
post #45 of 21988
We're not topping 30 wins at all
We gonn get the 4th pick and give it to philly
Do we still owe Orlando a first?

Quick thought on the Lakers … The guys playing with Kobe are so young they are in awe of him and are looking to defer to him at all times. D’Angelo Russell is going to be nice. He needs to be put in the pick-and-roll. I can’t see Julius Randle’s game right now translating into any NBA success. Remember, he is basically a rookie so he can adjust.

The overall level of raw talent is better, but a lot of things (fit of the players, coaching decisions, defense, even night-to-night consistency) might be worse.

I think 29 is the max, but really, nothing would surprise me other than a playoff appearance.

Byron gets fired, we hire a competent guy, get top 3 pick, get durant.

 

Flourish? :Nthat

post #50 of 21988
Teams I think we will end up with a better record than.... Least to most confident.

Knicks, Pacers, Pistons (things have to go really wrong for these 3 teams, but there's a slight possibility).

Timberwolves (Yeah yeah Wiggins & KAT. I know. Rubio, Kevin Martin, Pekovic are walking injuries. Garnett really provides nothing. Andre Miller is laughable, and with Rubio likely ends up starting a good portion of games.

Nets (Something very unlikeable about that team. Love Thad Young though. Jack regressed badly last year. No DWill, not sure that matters, but still.... 38 wins last year, didn't / couldn't improve, think they went backwards).

Magic (a fun team, but that's really about it. Don't see anybody making drastic improvements. Defense & who can truly shoot is a problem)

Mavericks (They were able to salvage themselves a bit with DeAndre giving the cold shoulder. But nothing about that team screams anything significant, especially when you look at their 5 backups... Felton, Devin Harris, J. Anderson, Villanueva & Dalembert) sick.gif

Nuggets (Lawson for Mudiay first year will be a big drop, considering he can't shoot. Also they are a Chandler or Gallinari injury away from Mike Miller playing 20+ mpg)

Trail Blazers (absolute putrid brand of basketball they will throw out there).

76ers (a given)

I hope they prove me wrong. If not, at least we'll get some decent highlights.

I feel you.

Hell I struggle with the **** daily. I go hoop now, trying to keep up with the young kids on base and it takes about 2 days to recover...smh

Hate to see him go but it has been ONE HELL of a career.

Making sure I have tickets to the last game this year....
