Hollinger's 2010-11 Player Profiles: Blazers (Insider)

Just sharing the link for those that have ESPN Insider access. Hollinger is probably my fav ESPN analyst, these projections are pretty good. Here's his piece on 'dre to give you an idea of what you can expect: Projection: 17.0 pts, 4.0 reb, 6.4 ast per 40 min; 16.08 • Big guard with vast array of inside and low-post moves. Loves to push tempo. • Among best ever at alley-oop but an ordinary passer otherwise. Great rebounder. • Line-drive set shot rarely goes in. Good team defender but struggles one-on-one. Miller's nickname should be "Groundhog Day," because he has the same season every year. He shows up in poor shape and gets off to a slow start. Then out of the blue he goes gangbusters in January, leading to a slew of "Andre Miller is the League's Most Underrated Player" articles. Last season it came with the added bonus of a practice confrontation with Nate McMillan right before his outburst, but it happens every season as reliably as the sunrise. Miller is 34 and can't shoot, which you'd think would be a bad combination, but his numbers are virtually identical to what they were seven years ago. Last season was his third straight with 18 points, seven assists and four rebounds per 40 minutes, along with a PER just over 18. Miller does not appear to be the most well-conditioned athlete in the league, yet he played the entire schedule for a seventh consecutive season. And while he's not overly athletic, Miller is a great rebounder and destroys small guards around the basket with his craftiness. We keep waiting for age to knock him off his stride, but it hasn't happened yet.

Using Hollinger Stats, LoadedO Predicts 51-31 season

Using the Hollinger rankings as a reference point and reviewing the Blazers' record against the league to date, I created four tiers of teams in the league and assigned a potential winning percentage over the teams in those tiers. Basically it's the Big 3, the other teams fighting Portland in the West, a smallish group incl. Toronto and Detroit, and then the bottom 13 teams. From that I calculated the aggregate potential for wins and came up with 51-31. See how I did it, at LoadedO...
