Blazers 2008-09 Season Predictions

Now that the preseason is over, and Dave has done his final Preview of the team, it is time for us all to put down our Final, (meaning you can't change them anymore!) season predictions for the team. As Dave's said in his post, these are meaningless, however I feel they are very fun to try and get right! So first here is some information, (stats!) to help everyone decide on their predictions.

Preseason stat link: http://www.nba.com/blazers/stats/

Using these stats, as well as last season stats for a minutes baseline, I have run the numbers to show what each players season would look like if he simply played like he did in the preseason. (Yes I know this is not perfectly reliable, but it is just meant as some info to help everyone with their predictions, don't take it as the bible).

Stat:     Min      PTS     AST     REB     STL     BLK    TO       FG%    3PT% FT%

Blake   29.9     10.8     5.2       1.5       2.2       0          .7         48        36        67

ROY    37.7     22.2     5.0       2.7       2.7       0          2.0       60        64        56

Batum  15.0     5.3       1.1       2.3       .6         1.0       .7         43        36        60

LMA    34.9     19.1     2.3       7.8       1.8       .8         1.0       47        0          71

Oden    30.0     14.6     1.7       9.9       .6         1.1       3.2       58        0          66

Rudy    27.2     11.1     3.7       3.1       2.4       0          3.1       46        35        100

Travis   21        8.3       .7         3.0       1.0       .9         .5         37        36        76

Frye     15        6.2       .6         3.6       0.0       .4         0          44        100      63

Joel      18        5.1       0          6.2       0.0       1.1       1.1       67        0          57

Sergio  20        5.1       5.7       1.7       1.3       0.0       2.1       38        37        50

*Web   22.6     13.0     .9         6.9       1.7       .9         .9         63        25        100

*Webster only played in 1 game so his numbers are very debateable.

Some minutes projections were based soley on what I thought a player would play, while others were just takin off of what they did last year, (like Roy's 37.7)

I think these are a possible outcome, however  few things I will change for my prediction.
