Last nights game got out of hand quickly and I expect that to happen a lot this year as this team is still going to have nights where they are going to have trouble putting the ball in the hoop. Tristan did show some new post moves that he learned this off-season but still showed at times that he is very raw and off balance a lot. Waiters couldn't buy a shot but wasn't really being aggressive going to the paint last night. He will need to find a way to get to the rim more and the FT line when his outside shot isn't going down but I would imagine he was pretty nervous playing in Philly for the first time. KI is who we know he is and Andy needs to stay healthy because he is a big piece to this team.
I don't think they are going to be able to compete for the 8th seed this year but I am kind of happy about that as I think they still need to obtain another lottery pick next year to really round out this team and get another dynamic scorer to go with KI and Dion. I am not saying that they need to lose on purpose but that the team will probably play hard all year but because of their experience and clear weaknesses that the team is going to have a lot of down nights. I would imagine around 30-35 wins for this team.
