    Predict the stats of our guys

    I thought it would be fun to try and predict some stats for our guys next year. See what we're all thinking the production of the team will be like. I'll start, and I'm not doing the whole team cause that would take too much thought haha.


    Kevin Love: 25 PPG, 12.5 RPG, 2.2 APG, .5 BLK, .5 STL, 45%FG, 39% 3PTFG
    Ricky Rubio: 14 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 9.3 APG, 2.4 STL, 40% FG, 32% 3PTFG
    Kevin Martin: 14 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2.1 APG, 1.0 STL, 46%FG, 41% 3PTFG

    fun thread...will look more into depth with it tomorrow...or, possibly more tonight.

    But Rubio with more offensive weapons around him, I can actually see around 11 assists per game...his passing game is incredible. I think the 14 ppg you predict is too high though.

    Martin is now scoring option number two on this team, and a legitimate scoring option...so I see higher than 14 ppg from him...I think 17+ is what we are looking at with him.

    Love with two other legitimate scoring options around him (Pek and Martin) will score lower than 25...I am thinking 21-23...I also think he gets more than 12.5 rebs per game. He is the best rebounder since Dennis Rodman. I am thinking 13 point something per game from him.

    Rubio - 10.3 assists, 12 ppg, 2.3 steals, 38% from the field, 33% from three
    Martin - 17 ppg, 43% from field, 39% from 3
    Chase - 9 ppg, 43% from field, 37% from 3,
    Love - 23 ppg, 45% from field, 38% from 3, 13.5 rpg, 4 orpg
    Pek - 16 ppg, 10 rpg, 58% from field

    Fully healthy rotation =
    PG, Rubio - 32 mpg, JJ 12 mpg, Shved 4 mpg = 48
    SG, Martin 29 mpg, Brewer 10 mpg, Shved 6 mp Barea 3 mpg = 48
    SF, Chase 24 mpg, Brewer 13 mpg, Williams 8 mpg, Shabazz 3 mpg
    PF, Love 32 mpg, Williams 8 mpg, Cunningham 8 mpg
    C, Pek 28 mpg, Dieng 9 mpg, Love 6 mpg, Turiaf 3 mpg

    ...that is a fully healthy lineup, not what the actual minutes per game will be...of course Barea wont end up with only 15 mpg, much like Cunningham will not end up with only 8 mpg.

    That makes: 78,5 ppg, 6spg, 18,9 apg, 31,8 rpg only from our starting line up.
    Isn't that a bit optimistic?

    Yes. To a degree that's probably true.

    I think Love will take a small step back so that Bud/Martin get more shots. This is why I have them taking steps forward in the ppg. Pek I just feel is going to be a little more efficient than he was last season with some of the pressure off down low, and he missed a lot of bunnies as well that I (optimistically) think he can finish on this season. Rubio could be down to 8 ppg, IDK. This is my first time trying to project individual statistics for a starting lineup so I'm probably inflating things.

    remember, when you hit game 20 and beyond, the mpg won't add up to 240, and the ppg, etc won't add up to your total. Guys miss games.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    You are right about the reasoning and sorry for picking yours but it was the last when I read the topic. Yeah it's hard and Hawk is right. It doesn't work like I did it.
    Anyway it is hard to predict it. Also I don't want to do it. I don't want to raise my hopes after what happened last year.

    I feel like JJ wont be here by the time the season starts. I think we have confidence in Rubio/Shved/Brown. I also see Shabazz getting in the game a lot more than people think. I could easily see him averaging 8-10 points because he can play the 2-3. I see Brewer as a piece mostly for D and wouldn't average more than 6-7 points.

    Rubio: 12 ppg, 10.5 apg, 5.4 rpg, 2.5 stl
    Martin: 15 ppg 3 apg, 2 rpg
    Dwill: 14 ppg, 2 apg, 7 rpg
    Love: 22 ppg, 3 apg, 13 rpg
    Pek: 19 ppg, 1 apg, 8 rpg

    Shved: 9 ppg, 5 apg, 2 rpg
    Shabazz: 9 ppg, 1 apg, 3 rpg
    Bud: 11 ppg, 2 apg, 4 rpg
    Donte: 6 ppg, 1 apg, 6 rpg
    Brewer: 7 ppg, 2 apg, 4 rpg
    Johnson (stunner!): 7 ppg, 2 apg, 5 rpg

    I just feel if we have a healthy team we will be a big offensive team. That might be just me, but a healthy love/bud with martin and shabazz I feel like we could be a 8-5 seed.

    I disagree. Flip is all about the win now approach, and JJ is by far our best and most proven backup PG. I think the idea of a Shved and Brown backup combo is fan generated. Fans tend to love the younger guys...but realistically, JJ is the better choice. Adelman never gave Shved confidence in the PG role, and I think it is foolish to think a 2nd round pick can handle the backup role as well...not saying Brown nor Shved are good young talent, I just dont think that is the direction the team is going with.

    Also while on the subject of young plsyrts vs proven players, I think Turiaf gets more minutes at C than Dieng.

    I gotta disagree on this one. Brown is entirely unproven. Shved is still entirely unproven. After last season's injury meltdown, how are you (as an NBA GM) going to go into the season with only one proven PG on the roster? If that is what happens, we better start praying to the injury gods that they don't smite us once again. We've talked about this a lot already, but my basic opinion is that JJ is essential as a game, and pace changer on offense. Especially come playoff time.

    Agreed, at least for the first 25 games. Bazz and Dieng, like ANY rookie in the history of Rick Adelman will have to seriously prove they belong in order to break into a "Win now" lineup.

    Shved can easily handle the duties - I have zero doubt in my mind, but you need 3 PGs on the roster and from what I have seen from Brown in the summer league - he is either not good, not ready or both.


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"
