Predict the Wizards Record '21-'22 season 

Post#1 » by dckingsfan » Wed Oct 13, 2021 8:48 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...

38-44
9th in East

I like all the moves we’ve made. But a number of Eastern Conference teams got better or in Toronto’s case get to play “home” games actually at home this year.

Given the current construct of the team, I will say 31 wins.
We will loose many games by 4 or less pts.
12th in the east.

It will be 30 wins. Hey, don't blame me - I'm just the messenger.

39 wins, 10th seed. Play in.

I just don't see how the team is worse than last season. I don't think Westbrook to Dinwiddie is much of a downgrade, and we're better everywhere else including the coach.

Frankly, if we are headed to 32-35 wins like everyone else thinks, then we should definitely trade Beal, Harrell and KCP and try and tank.

I'll go with Vegas yet again, and say 34 wins and 10th in the East. Hopefully this will be the last year of Grunfeld's lackeys running the team.

I will be my usual optimistic self and vote 42 wins and 7th seed...

if we hit Vegas' prediction or worse Beal should be out of here...hopefully by the trade deadline but I fear it would be as a sign-in trade after the season where the Wiz get peanuts...
