Simply put will our boys make the playoffs? If so, why? If not why not? If not, who will beat us out for 7th and 8th seed? What do you think the major factors for this will be?
I will be brief. I believe we will make the playoffs this year. Barely. But we will make some noise and go out in the 1st round in 4-5 games against one of the WCF bound teams.
I'm predicting right around .500 and 8th seed. I think the west has weakened a tad over last year and I think Portland has improved. That means more wins against said weakened teams. Alot of big men were injured or went East over the summer. For the Blazers end it's a matter of Oden picking up the NBA game, the big 3 staying staying healthy and the speed at which they gel. I also think Outlaw and Frye will have great years.
