***Our Annual - Predict The Heat 2021-2022 Regular Season*** 

Post#1 » by RexBoyWonder » Fri Aug 13, 2021 4:10 pm

It's that time of the year again - time to get our hopes up before they're crushed by Iggie's jinxing.

Last year we were all (besides eddieheatfan) too optimistic and on average expected 6.5 more wins.

We still have a roster spot and 2 way contracts to add but the roster is close enough to our final form..So...
Did we get better this year?

Last season Prediction thread :
viewtopic.php?f=20&t=2022216

How wisdom of the crowd effect works :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisdom_of_the_crowd


So without further ado, let's get after it - All answers should address the Regular Season :


1) How many wins will the Heat have in the 2021-2022 season? (back to a 82 game season)

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

3) Who will be our top 5 leading scorers, and what will their PPG be?

4) Who will be our best overall new addition (new to the rotation)?

5) Who will be our best overall young/inexperienced player? (Herro/Strus/Omer/KZ/Vincent/2 way guys like Garret/Deeky)?

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

7) Who will be the biggest disappointment?

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

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

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

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

12) Predict the weirdest moment of the season.

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?

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

16) What are your picks for Eastern champions, Western champions - and finally NBA Champions?

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

1) How many wins will the Heat have in the 2021-2022 season? (back to a 82 game season)
51

2) Will we make the playoffs this year? If yes - what seed will we be?
Yes, 4th

3) Who will be our top 5 leading scorers, and what will their PPG be?
Bam 20.4
Jimmy 19.3
Lowry 16.2
Herro 15.8
Duncan 13.8

4) Who will be our best overall new addition (new to the rotation)?
Lowry

5) Who will be our best overall young/inexperienced player? (Herro/Strus/Omer/KZ/Vincent/2 way guys like Garret/Deeky)?
Strus

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

7) Who will be the biggest disappointment?
PJ - He won’t be the factor fans & the FO expect him to be, even he thinks we overpaid him (read between the lines in some of his leaving Bucks comments).

8) What trades will we end up doing during the year (or even before the season starts)?
Mid season we’ll get the an offer for Duncan, by NOP that will be something like Ingram for Duncan/Herro/PJ - hopefully the FO jumps on it!

9) What will be the biggest surprise of the season? (positive or negative or both)
Spo playing Yurt7 during an injury to Dedmon & actually staying with him in the rotation.

10) What will our board posters write about Spo once this season is over?
His willingness to change style to fit the roster is a sign of growth …

11) Predict a nice/interesting statistical nugget you can see happening with the team or a player.
We will better defensively with Duncan on court than off. Simply due to who he plays with, though.

12) Predict the weirdest moment of the season.
Bam calls out Jimmy for not giving 100% in a game, and Jimmy simply takes it on the chin.

13) Predict a RealGM Heat-board development you expect to see with a long time poster/s.
During a slow start, Rex makes 0 posts about trading Jimmy, starting the rebuild and tanking the season. Meanwhile, AirP turns on Jimmy and demands we trade his bum ass - at which point Grumpy ask for decorum and praises the decision to Herro and let Nunn walk.

14) What will you consider a success/failure this year?
Failure = not making the 2nd round
Success = getting out of the second round, or better

15) What will be the biggest factor to impact our success or failure this year?
Roster cohesion. If they’re on the same page we’ll be good, otherwise we could look bad at times.

16) What are your picks for Eastern champions, Western champions - and finally NBA Champions?
Net (once they get all the buy-out all-stars) beating the Clippers in the Finals.

17) Bonus playoff question - How far will we get in the playoffs and how will our season end?
Second round loss, 4-2 to a healthy Nets (who finished #1 seed).

Last year we were all (besides eddieheatfan) too optimistic and on average expected 6.5 more wins.

We still have a roster spot and 2 way contracts to add but the roster is close enough to our final form..So...
Did we get better this year?

Last season Prediction thread :
viewtopic.php?f=20&t=2022216

How wisdom of the crowd effect works :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisdom_of_the_crowd


So without further ado, let's get after it - All answers should address the Regular Season :


1) How many wins will the Heat have in the 2021-2022 season? (back to a 82 game season)
49
2) Will we make the playoffs this year? If yes - what seed will we be?
Yes, 5th seed
3) Who will be our top 5 leading scorers, and what will their PPG be?
Jimmy, bam, Lowry, hero, Duncan in that order
4) Who will be our best overall new addition (new to the rotation)?
Lowry
5) Who will be our best overall young/inexperienced player? (Herro/Strus/Omer/KZ/Vincent/2 way guys like Garret/Deeky)?
Hero will have the biggest improvement but Duncan will be right behind him.
6) Which player will make the biggest improvement from last year?
Hero
7) Who will be the biggest disappointment?
KZ when playing for an injured player will have some very bad games.
8) What trades will we end up doing during the year (or even before the season starts)?
None, perhaps a buyout player.
9) What will be the biggest surprise of the season? (positive or negative or both)
Hero improvement with a full offseason, Bam will also improve his midrange slightly to the point it will be noticeable.
10) What will our board posters write about Spo once this season is over?
He is an above average planning coach, but bad at mid game adjustments.
11) Predict a nice/interesting statistical nugget you can see happening with the team or a player.
2-3 additional FGA from Bam at the mid post to the high post.
12) Predict the weirdest moment of the season.
BAM starts the season Ansy to show improvement and ends up throwing duds the first 10 games then levels to his ceiling again.
13) Predict a RealGM Heat-board development you expect to see with a long time poster/s.
Expect fire spo or what was pat thinking middle of the season if this goes terribly south.
14) What will you consider a success/failure this year?
Eastern conference Finals losing to the Nets/bucks is a success. Losing in the first round again shows this team isn’t even close
15) What will be the biggest factor to impact our success or failure this year?

16) What are your picks for Eastern champions, Western champions - and finally NBA Champions?

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

People who don’t answer question 13 should be given an incomplete. BenoFTL prolly has the best prediction so far, with my answer prolly being the most true.
