For the record I had 32 wins I believe. Already surpassing my expectations!

it was the Christmas collapse in my opinion....everything else such as the injuries, trades, etc. feel like common challenges a team has to almost expect to navigate.....but the total collapse of our defense during that losing streak was unacceptable. We have a real chance @ .500 or even 1 over if not for those couple weeks.

This year, the consequences are minimum, because we would still likely be out of the playoffs....but pulling something like that next season could be the difference between a home court playoff seed and a #7 or #8 seed....or even not making the playoffs.

Damn, thought I put my prediction in back in the beginning of the season.

Oh well... next year.

I already starting next years, 52 wins.

That means growth by the young guns and Lonzo learns to shoot and we get 1 out of 2 max players.

Bye.

I think our baseline for next year is 40-42 wins, if we just keep the core, add a few punt deals.

Add LBJ/PG13, keep Jules/Brook, that's easily a 55-57 win at the least.
Add PG13/Jules/Brook/KCP (on 1 year deals), probably a 50-53 win team.

I predicted 35, hoping for 39 right now.

Next season, if we keep this entire roster with no changes and manage to stay healthy, I'd put the baseline at 48 wins.

We're that good, and three rookies plus BI are all at the steep side of the improvement curve. Imagine Randle with a mid range shot. I don't think 48 wins is out of reach at all.

Add PG13, keeping Randle and Lopez as a 4/5 tandem and we go to 55.

2 Max is starting to lose it's luster if it costs us Randle.

I was optimistic at 40 - didn't expect so many of our youngsters to miss so much time. Still - they have a shot at getting to 37/38 - and 40 is a mathematical possibility.

I still have a chance of being right if we go 0-4 the rest of the season. Really hope I'm wrong though. Would love some more wins.

Cn’t remember if I had a single win total prediction for this year. But I am pretty sure it was 32-35 wins.

EDIT: Nevermind, just woke up and didnt realize this was a thread bump. I predicted 32 wins.

I was 35 wins on the nose looks like I will be pretty close.

The twolves had 31 wins that year, and I thought the wolves might have the top young talent in towns, but I thought we had better depth in top talent so I expected us to be a bit better than them.....just like I think we'll top their record this year if we add equivalent talent while mostly staying tact...like PG 13 (yes I know butler got injured).

This is a good sign for the Lakers as everyone pretty much universally agreed the twolves were one of the next up and coming teams and like them we've really done it on the backs of rookies and 2nd and 3rd year players in a very tough western conference
