How come you're not so optimistic, Rhyder? Injuries?

46 - 36 seems pretty optimistic to me. It's five more victories than we saw last year. I just hope (*crosses fingers*) that we can aim that high.

Re: Predict the Bulls 10/11 Season Record

I still say we'll get around 50 wins, accounting for Boozer's injury. IMO, we've already lost 1 game (Knicks) and possibly more than 1 that we may have otherwise won w/ Boozer (and by ripple effect, a deeper bench). But, we still look OK for a team missing their best big man and 2nd best player. Upcoming road trip will be brutal and a real test of where a Boozer-less is at.

If Boozer had never been injured, we could easily be 6-1 right now (all losses have been pretty close) and well on pace for upper-50's win pace. If only if's and buts were candy and nuts.

It's pretty optimistic, but not so optimistic, if you get what I mean.

A 5 win improvement over a VDN coached team without Boozer, Deng still coming around, DRose hurt at the beginning of the year, and Jo No just starting to take the game seriously and getting hurt with PF....

Last year's team should have had 5 more wins, regardless, let alone this year's. Just MO. :-)

That's the model I use every year speaking, not an instinctual guess. Rose and Noah both have played better this year than I expected, so maybe our actual win total will exceed my prediction.

52 and 30.

Right now the bulls are 7 and 4 and ranked 7th by espn and the mike greenwich ranking systems but to me the most important issue is (not exactly sure) that the bulls have the hardest SOS at 57.1% and this is all without Boozer and trying to fit in one new starter and four new bench plays and i think that suggests that the bulls will be playing better as the season goes on.

The bulls win about 65% of their games and that is how i got to 52 wins.

Bump!

Anybody care to consider their mortality and fallibility?

Enjoy!

Well I feel pretty good about my 55 win prediction. Although it looks like even that number could come out on the low side if this team gets and stays healthy for the second half.

According to Hollingers predictions we will end up with 56 wins.

What a great off-season for us.

Re: Predict the Bulls 10/11 Season Record

I was correct about the injuries but damn I really underestimated Tom Thibs coaching, the guy is a coaching genius. Derrick becoming the best basketball player in the WORLD (Charles Barkley said it) really did not cross my mind at the time either.
