    Looked but didn't see a thread on this, so thought I'd steer us away from Simmons and Wall for a moment and focus on the season ahead.

    Record: 33-49

    Scoring Leaders: Wood 22.7; Scoot 21.3; Green 18.9
    Rebound Leaders: Wood 10.4; Theis 6.8; Sengun 5.7
    Assist Leaders: Scoot 7.8; Tate 4.0; Green 3.2
    Steals Leaders: Tate 1.5; Scoot 1.1; Christopher 0.8
    Blocks Leaders: Wood 1.4; Martin 1.0; Theis 0.7

    I'm very excited for the season and can't wait to see this team play and develop. I do think there is an outside chance we could be better than the record above or that the injury bug bites us a again and we fall into the 20s.

    I think we will start season off slow but wind up being an above average team; being able to get and maintain leads by 20+ points against lesser teams and battling better teams. Lots talent across the team but the firepower and heart of the second unit is where the difference is. The depth is why tanking can’t happen any more. The youth will grow and good thing will happen. Our rotations are going to be placing pressure on teams because we can show different looks and move the score board with all of them. We should be able to attack the other team’s weaknesses and not expose any of ours. Coaching and keeping everyone engaged and happy with their role is key.

    (with) Wall 39 wins
    (with) Simmons 51 wins






    It always comes back to Wall-Simmons. You can't get away from it. Lol

    I think this team wins 25-27 games as it is right now.

    KPjr.......................16.6 / 32 mins...............................18 / 30 mins.................
    J Green.........................................................................23 / 30 mins................
    E Gordon..............17.8 / 29 mins...............................15 / 25 mins................
    Exum..............................................................................7 / 12 mins.................

    House...................8.8 / 26 mins.................................10 / 18 mins................
    Nwaba...................9.2 / 23 mins..................................6 / 12 mins.................
    Tate......................11.3 / 29 mins................................12 / 24 mins................
    Kenyon..................9.3 / 24 mins.................................11 / 23 mins................

    Wood.....................21 / 32 mins.................................23 / 30 mins.................
    Theis.....................9.6 / 25 mins................................10 / 24 mins..................
    Sengun........................................................................11 / 18 mins..................


    In December Garuba becomes a bigger part of what might be an 11 man rotation.
    Exum and Augustin on the outside fringe of the rotation. Christopher gets garbage time.

    I must say, I'm thinking of adjusting my 25 wins up to 30 wins. This team picks up
    wins by out running opponents and fresh bodies rotating in constantly. Silas system
    making them more efficient in less minutes played.

    I like the leaders board for every category here. If it happens the way you wrote it plus Eric Gordon stays healthy to play 70 games or so, the win total will be 39-42.

    I think we'll win 28-30 games.

    Wood: 23.5ppg, 10.1rpg, 1.8 apg
    Scoot: 19.8ppg, 7.8 apg, 4.2 rpg
    Green: 18.7ppg, 4.2 apg, 3.5 rpg
    Sengun:12.3ppg, 7.2rpg, 1.5 apg (if he gets more than 20 mpg, which I hope he does)


    Thats a lot of points.

    Our rotation will determine a lot of the statistical data for each player. I think there is almost to much talent on the team at the moment to keep everyone happy long term. We will see. Wall sitting out helps but doesn’t solve it.

    Add in 10pts for Tate
    9pts for Martin
    8 pts for DJ
    8 pts for House
    15 pts for Gordon (who can put up 20 shots in 5 minutes)
    5.9 points for Theis.

    That's around 128 pts per game!!! I'll be realistic and leave it at 118 pts per game
    The only team that scored as much and sucked last year was Indiana.


    Rockets in 6!

    If they can get here would be pretty good. From being the worse team in league. This team could be good if they develop, and be ok. I like the rotation.

    If Eric Gordon plays well enough to avg 17 puts a game or actually help win games he will be gone before the deadline.
