One of the guys on ESPN forecasts the nuggets to finish 11th in the west this season. It got me thinking, this season is really hard to forecast for the nuggets. Do they trade Melo? Do they win a lot of games, trade Melo at the deadline and tank after that, ending up with a decent record? Do they trade Melo before the season starts or early in the season for projects and tank the whole season? Do they trade Melo and get better, as some have suggested?
I say we have a contest to see who most accurately forecasts the number of wins for this season. I've included a poll to decide weather to have only one forecast per person, or should we allow forecasts based on what if's. The results of the poll will govern the contest. You can modify your forecast based on changing conditions up until tipoff of the first game. Then we can compare our forecasts at the end of the season for bragging rights. Who out there knows this team better than the rest of us? The season starts on Wednesday, so what better time than now to forecast their record?
