1) How many wins will the Heat have in the 2019-2020 season?
48 wins.
2) Will we make the playoffs this year? If yes - what seed will we be?
Yes, 4th

Butler: 19PPG, Dragic 17PPG, Winslow 15PPG, Bam 14PPG
4) Who will be our best overall new addition (new at Miami)?
Butler
5) Who will be our best overall young player (not including Dion)?
Bam
6) Which player will make the biggest improvement from last year?
Bam
7) Who will be the biggest disappointment?
James Johnson
8) What trades will we end up doing during the year (or even before the season starts)?
I think Pat may stay pat throughout the year. Think the chemistry will be good this year and Riley wouldn't want to shake it up.
9) What will be the biggest surprise of the season? (positive or negative or both)
Spo gives minutes to Herro.
10) What will our board posters write about Spo once this season is over?
He actually handled the minutes decently among the 1-3 spots.
11) Predict a nice/interesting statistical nugget you can see happening with the team or a player.
Herro averages over 40% 3point percentage this year.
12) Predict the weirdest moment of the season.
Something between Butler and Dion.
13) Predict a RealGM Heat-board development you expect to see with a long time poster/s.

14) What will you consider a success/failure this year?
Making the second round and putting up a good effort(7 games). Failure? Missing the playoffs or getting beat soundly in round 1.

15) What will be the biggest factor to impact our success or failure this year?
Guys like Winslow and Bam evolving as players. Rebounding.

16) Bonus playoff question - How far will we get in the playoffs and how will our season end?
2nd round, 6 games.

I have changed my answer to (9) to reflect something more impossible than Jeremiah Martin's league debut.
Humans: Out of nature and hopelessly in it; dual, up in the stars and yet housed in a heart-pumping, breath-gasping body that once belonged to a fish and still carries the gill-marks to prove it.

1) How many wins will the Heat have in the 2019-2020 season?

46-36

2) Will we make the playoffs this year? If yes - what seed will we be?

Yes, 6th seed.

3) Who will be our top 4 leading scorers, and what will their PPG be?

Jimmy Butler - 21.3ppg, Dion Waiters - 16.5ppg, Justise Winslow - 15.2ppg, Goran Dragic - 14.5ppg.

4) Who will be our best overall new addition (new at Miami)?

Butler. There is no competition lol.

5) Who will be our best overall young player (not including Dion)?

Justise Winslow. Expecting the true breakout year if he is played in his correct positions, and not subject to the PF slot.

6) Which player will make the biggest improvement from last year?

Bam Adebayo. Starting C for a full szn, he's gonna have a mini breakout.

7) Who will be the biggest disappointment?

Kelly Olynyk. Get the feeling this knee issue is gonna linger. McBone bruise.

8) What trades will we end up doing during the year (or even before the season starts)?

Probably something involving John Wall/Brad Beal...but who knows.

9) What will be the biggest surprise of the season? (positive or negative or both)

Dion being healthy and contributing positively.

10) What will our board posters write about Spo once this season is over?

What hasn't been said already? Spobot gonna spobot.

11) Predict a nice/interesting statistical nugget you can see happening with the team or a player.

Heat finish inside the Top 20 for offense for once.

12) Predict the weirdest moment of the season.

Weird JJ game where he goes full McBob vs Hawks and turns back the clock with a triple double.

13) Predict a RealGM Heat-board development you expect to see with a long time poster/s.

Goodboy gets his banner.

14) What will you consider a success/failure this year?

Success would be fully unleashing our young crew, while Buckets get his and leads us to a suprising ECF berth. Failure would be regression from our young guys, Butler getting seriously injured, and missing the playoffs.

15) What will be the biggest factor to impact our success or failure this year?

Jimmy Butler. It's his team - we go as he goes.

16) Bonus playoff question - How far will we get in the playoffs and how will our season end?

Likely bounced in the first round in 6 games tbh :(

1) How many wins will the Heat have in the 2019-2020 season?

52

2) Will we make the playoffs this year? If yes - what seed will we be?

3rd seed

3) Who will be our top 4 leading scorers, and what will their PPG be?

Butler 21, Goran 17, Dion 15, Winslow 14

4) Who will be our best overall new addition (new at Miami)?

Butler

5) Who will be our best overall young player (not including Dion)?

Bam

6) Which player will make the biggest improvement from last year?

Bam

7) Who will be the biggest disappointment?

JJ already disappointed, so the next person on the list will be KO. He’s too small to be a C, too slow to be a PF.

8) What trades will we end up doing during the year (or even before the season starts)?

Trade for Beal somehow.

9) What will be the biggest surprise of the season? (positive or negative or both)

The team overachieves.

10) What will our board posters write about Spo once this season is over?

That he got this team in line. All it took was adding a professional in Butler and dumping Whiteside.

11) Predict a nice/interesting statistical nugget you can see happening with the team or a player.

Winslow shoots over 43% from 3.

12) Predict the weirdest moment of the season.

When Lebron comes to town and we realize he is the only player in the big 3 left playing.

13) Predict a RealGM Heat-board development you expect to see with a long time poster/s.

Goodboy comes close to a banner, but can’t achieve the wins necessary. Then he burns down tent city with me, DrHeat, Dr_Heat, and EddieHeat left porchless.

14) What will you consider a success/failure this year?

Acquiring pieces to get this team within a year or two of competing for a championship.

15) What will be the biggest factor to impact our success or failure this year?

Post defense and rebounding. Bam is going to need to play strong and stay healthy.

16) Bonus playoff question - How far will we get in the playoffs and how will our season end?

ECF. 4-1. This team will have gone as far as they could.
