Predict the Wizards Record '20-'21 season 

Post#1 » by dckingsfan » Tue Dec 15, 2020 2:41 pm

Well, it's that time again... Win's and ECF standings please (note the shortened season and back to backs!). Any outrageous predictions welcome :)

Final predictions are due before the second game of the season, WITH NO PENALTY :D

Remember - you can have the same number of wins and still win by more accurately predicting the standings.

Mods - sticky this until the start of the season - please...

For what it's worth:

We played 72 games last year, 87.8% of an 82-game season. If you multiply those win predictions by 87.8%, then those who predicted 29 wins actually got it right.

If you ignore the bubble when Beal and Bertans sat out, then those who predicted 31 wins got it right.

This season will be a 72-game season.

I'm predicting 36 wins: .500 ball.
9th place in the standings.

We were 11 games under .500 last year. I like the team this year, but that's A LOT of ground to make up. We still have a bad defense. Maybe it won't be historically awful, but it will be in the bottom 3rd of the league. It's tough to win more than half your games if you have maybe the 24th ranked defense in the league.

I'm high on the Wiz. I think we surprise a lot of people. 4 seed. Don't know how many wins though.

31 wins, 10 in east

My heart says to guess much higher, but my years as a Wiz fan say to keep my expectations in the dirt.

I’m shocked. Two top 10 players in the east and people expect us to lose more games than we win.

40 wins. 40-32 is basically the equivalent of a 46 win normal season. Potential for higher though depending on how fast the young guys improve.
