CHECK OUT THIS LINK

It gives ESPN's projections for every teams record at the end of the season, and the odds at that team making the playoffs....

It is really interesting...

What are your thoughts on it?

For me, I love it.

I am a Thunder fan and it projects them to go 48-34 (getting the 5 seed in the West) and having an 82.5% chance of making the playoffs...

I think this is because the Thunder are young, and only going to improve every day...

They are playing very well right now, but i predict them to even play better towards the end of the season...

I gotta agree with you on the Lakers....

I think that they will win between 65-70 games this year...

Lol @ they're basing it on the current standings through 20 games. Lakers having played nearly all their games at home, Suns are about to play 5/6 playoff teams in a row, and Dallas isn't even healthy yet. Everythings gonna change by the all star break.

Lakeres won't win more than 60. Don't let their record now fool you.

It is not at all based on current standings....

OKC at #5

Portland not in the playoffs

Milwaukee not in the playoffs

Raptors are the 8 seed

EDIT: i didn't read where it said it was based on his power rankings, that means that these aren't really predictions at all. I also didn't read where it said that the odds would change! nevermind i guess it's tough to argue against this since it is inevitable that it will change.

Raptors 9-13
Pistons 8-12

Pistons have missed Rip and Prince (best players) almost the whole season plus Gordon and CV have missed multiple games each. I think there is a good chance Pistons get a higher playoff seed then the raptors.
