Having crossed the border from August to September we bid adieu to the dog days of summer and start looking forward to the opening of the next NBA regular season. We're going to start our journey towards opening night with the official prediction thread.
This is your chance to weigh in with your guess as to how many games the Blazers will win this year. Don't just throw out a number, though. Give us some idea why they'll win that many games and not more or fewer. In addition feel free to channel your inner Nostradamus and throw in any other predictions you care to make about the coming year.
Remember to bookmark this thread for reference throughout the season. If you haven't predicted it here, you haven't predicted it officially. Blazer Nation awaits your brilliance!
