There was a time when I was certain they wouldn’t win more than 35. But Stephen Curry is better than I thought he would be. I much prefer starting Ronny Turiaf at power forward if it’s not Anthony Randolph. Plus, as Matt Steinmetz keeps saying, the West is down. The top is ridiculous. But Houston, Utah, Phoenix and the Clippers – even the Hornets – aren’t exactly scary.
Eventually, the holes in this team (defense, no top-notch closer, no low-post scoring, young in the wrong places) will catch up to them and they will fade. But it should be. Could be a good first half, though.
So there is my prediction. On the record. Official. Now where is yours?
Let’s see what guy think. Post your prediction. Gimmie the record you think they will finish with. Factor in whatever you like and come up with one record.
