After recent acquisitions I think our team jumped from 35-win season to 48-54 win range. It is hard to gage how that will translate as far as playoff brackets, but I could see us fighting for the 3rd spot behind Warriors and Rockets.

 

Things to look out for me: how the game of 3rd year and sophomore guys are improving. Additionally, I will closely observe rookies - Wagner lowkey looking like young Dirk tbh.

 

This season is the transition season. We are gonna gel, Luke is gonna install some defense and new gameplan around Lebron. And we are gonna go from there. The rest is up to adjustments.

Low end of that for me.

48

 

Unless we get Clint or bring Brook back.

Then 53


Excited for  1. Lebron! (Still love me some Kobe, but damn this guy is amazing) 2. Another big get (Whether in FA or in a trade we need some attractions and closers) 3. Young Guys making big jump (Assuming we have anyone left after more necessary moves either genius ones or in desperation)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

Right now...with this crew, we're probably a second round exit.

I don't see home court in round 1

 

YET.

 

Maybe as puzzle pieces change?

It’s only July 3.. we have to see by mid oct how the team is and who’s on it.

For sure, kuzma, ball, hart and Ingram are hungry wolf and eager to win now. 50-55 wins.

Assuming Lopez gets re-signed, no Kawhi and Ingram makes some big strides, I think 50 is reasonable.  2nd round exit (if we run into GSW) or WCF defeat is a likely scenario.  I think the Rockets are weakened for next year- Ariza is a significant loss, and CP3 is gonna get hurt more as he ages.

We need knock down shooters Svi looks good but still a rook and has D issues Mo needs a year to get used to the league travel etc we’re way better off thanks to our front office kudos

As the way the roster stands, 2nd round or WCF if we get lucky.

Hard to tell without the signings being done but bare min we need to get to the 2nd round and I would like to see 50 wins. Anything more would be a plus but these guys need to learn to actually win and win in the playoffs.
