The team is pretty much set, it's prediction time. Predict how many wins and tell us why you think so.

i'd say 21-25. we're good, but i'm skeptical until everything comes together. if the love-jefferson combo works then we might get more

26-30. I assume Foye's healthy all season long, we've just got the defensive C into our rotation (Jason Collins) and gained two starters in Kevin Love and Mike Miller.

21-25 is the best possibility atm.

Though you can exceed the limitation by going higher than that.

Wow, really? Cool. Why do you think they have the possibility of going higher than this?

Only thing that's in favour of Miami having more wins is they're in the East.

And let's hope that's enough. Their pick is ours.

I will take the leap to 31-36 wins. I think with the improved talent and the departure of some distractions will make a difference for the team. I small part of me wants it to be in the mid teens for wins though so the team finally gets arid of Whitman and McHale.

I think over 30 is pushing it. Even with Jaric, Walker and Buckner gone, we haven't improved at all on the defensive end. Miller isn't known as a great defender and people have talked enough about how Love and Jefferson will struggle on that end. We'll be a great offensive team, but until we can prove we can play defence we won't win that many games.

They couldn't win more than 30 games....They have Al and it's all they have. The Love for Mayo trade is, in my opinion, one of the worst trade in the NBA history...

How can you say it's one of the worst trades in NBA history when neither of the players have even played a game yet?  Unless you have a crystal ball or something.

Everybody knows that OJ Mayo will be a franchise player since at least 5 years....Do you really think that a duo Big Al/Love is better than Al/Mayo duo???

I don't think anyone thinks the duo of Love/Al is better than Mayo/Al. The fact that the Wolves acquired someone who can pull some defenders off of them in Mike Miller might be the difference maker, though. No offense to OJ Mayo because I think keeping him was probably the better call, but Miller and Love can out-produce him number for number across the board.

Maybe you're right, but in a few years from now, OJ will be probably one of the megastar of the NBA, the kind of player who are attractive for free agents...No offense to Miller and Love but they are not this kind of player!

Yeah I think everyone should just stop talking about the Mayo trade. We did it, it's done, no one likes it, everyone knows it, so let's all just move on. We went the "safe" option, so we shall leave it at that.

16-20 wins, McHale made that trade because he probably thought of himself when he looks at Kevin Love.  :lol: , probably Kevin Love reminds McHale of himself.
