    57-25 (you meant 27 not 17 losses) - much more of a function of being in the East, in the West it's a 49-33 team.

    You've got this team scoring 120 per game.

    Last year they scored 108 per game, with an SRS of 2.25 (lowish for the record), 13th D, 8th O

    This year I have them scoring 113.75 per, with an SRS of 4.65, 18th D, 4th O

    Yeah I wrote that up quick on my break. Just rough estimates...I don't even think GS scored 120ppg last season so shave a .5-1 point off everyone

    No worries. I think last year you were even more optimistic on your list, if so, a blessing of youth.

    I remember listening tp Pats games on the radio, and adding up Sam "Bam" Cunningham's rushing yardage, and I'd end up with something like 87 yards on 16 carries, then the box score would come out and it would be 79 yards - because the announcers were always rounding up - they were optimists too.

    I found the C's a trial to watch at times last year - esp vs very good defensive teams. This year I'm quite sure I won't have that sensation very often.

    I was there at the start of the Havlicek/Cowens teams, and the Bird teams, then the KG team, nothing would please me more to watch this team ascend to a couple of titles in the next 6-7 years. The last 4 Russell titles I saw were good too, but not quite as much fun to see it grow out of struggling teams.

    Always gotta be a little optimistic

    Last year it was a pain trying to watch this team on offense when IT was on the bench or getting shut down. Literally Nobody could get their own shot, that's why GG ended up starting in the playoffs lol

    I think 60 games is feasible

    I would say 60 but I think they'll be some early growing pains

    My player prediction is Horford matches or beats his best season of 17ppg, 10rpg and 5apg... Major spacing going on in green this season...

    Highly doubt this team wins 60. Only 4 returning players from last years team and adjustments will need to be made and some growing pains will occur. Ill say 57-25.

    Unless he is insanely efficient, probably not. Our offense will be pretty spread out between hayward, kyrie, horford, jaylen etc all getting their shots.

    Given that they will want to extend him he better be #1 or #2 in scoring. I'd be surprised if he averaged under 23.5 PPG, anything over 26.5, C's win 55+, and he gets good press for being a good teammate and he could crack the top 7.

    Jaylen and Horford combined will probably average under KY's average.

    I agree that he will be #1 in scoring on this team with roughly 25 ppg and he will be the go-to-guy on the team. I just dont think Kyrie will get the shot attempts that IT4 did. Nor do I think we will see a season where Kyrie has a .234 WS/48 and nearly 30 ppg. I also dont think we will ever see that out of IT4 again either and that only got him the 5th or something.
