Looking at the predictions for how the Blazers would fare in 2009-10, it's interesting that not a single commenter predicted 51 or fewer wins for Portland this regular season. A few of you threw out 52, but most gave straight-faced 60-65 win predictions.
No one predicted major injuries.
No one predicted the major display of heart and cojones our Blazers showed this year, expecting simple dominance instead.
Question: Let's say the Blazers had a charmed, relatively injury-free season (like OKC has enjoyed) and got the 63 or so wins people were expecting. Would that really be any more satisfying than what they've accomplished this regular season, with all the adversity? What do you thinK?
