    What is your Feeling on the Rockets this season?
    Of Course this will have to be amended once the season starts and everyone is set
    (then again at the trade deadline blah blah blah)

    but for sh!ts and Giggles. . . .
    What is ya GUT telling you about this season?

    How many games do they have to win for the Playoffs?

    Wow....really, cmon man. 40-44 if he stays? So in the range of our 2015-20216 team? No way our team is that bad unless we just completely implode.

    This team isn’t very good

    No, it's a 72 game season. 40-44 is basically like 46-50 in an 82 game season

    40-44 in a 72 game season? That’s pretty good. If they win 12 playoff games, I guess that means they’re making the Finals.

    (edit) never mind. I misunderstood your post :D

    45-27 if Harden & Westbrook stay.

    42-30 if Harden stays.

    37-35 if Westbrook stays.

    33-39 if neither stay.

    I forgot there was only 72 games. I thought the poll's "72" was the OP dreaming big and saying 72-10 lol.

    Voted 50-55, so whatever the equivalent of that is, in 72 games.

    There seems to be alot of change in the league.
    I think our first 20 games will tell the tale
    a Strong start is all the difference.

    If we can go 10-10 to about 12-8 . . . .I think we can be good

    60% is 43 games.
    I really don't think that is unobtainable.

    Harden is staying so 50+ if we fill those spots that we still have holes like back up c and pg or sg. Prob 55+

    based on our win % from last season we should be at 44 wins (72 games).

    I voted 45-49.

    I think wood, Silas, and Nwaba are upgrades from last year. we're not done yet either. I think we can find a backup center for the minimum and I think Silas will play him!

    I think there's potential to move up into the 50's if we can somehow use a combination of gordon, house, pj, picks, to get another playmaker like bogdan, or another front court athlete like Aaron Gordon.

    I want to know what it will be . ..
