    Default Carbon's Predictions

    Number of Wins: 41
    Final position in Atlantic: 3
    Seed in East: 7
    Bargnani Scoring/Rebounding Average: 18.2 / 7.4
    Will Bosh get traded (Yes/No)? No.
    Which rotation player will miss the most games due to injury? I don't want to think about injuries, but to provide an answer I'll go with Rasho only because he is the oldest on the roster, and even though he's still young compared to the general population, he'll take longer than most NBA'ers to recover from any potential injury.
    Turkoglu Scoring Average: 16.8
    Other than Jack, our best sixth man will be: Antoine Wright
    Record on January 1st (33 games): 16-17
    One free prediction: Raptors beat the Magic in a first round playoffs upset by a Hedo 3-pointer buzzer beater in Game 7! Sweet! (Tribal Honk! Tribal Honk!)

    I've thought about it some more and want to revise my predictions. There's no middle ground with this team. They'll either get it together after about a month and be good or be a train wreck from start to finish. I'll stick with my original predictions about individual players but I'll give a worst-case/best-case number for the rest. I strongly suspect the worst-case is what will happen this season but actually see the logic of how BC has assembled this team.

    1. Number of Wins:30/48
    2. Final position in Atlantic: 4/2
    3. Seed in East:11/5
    4. Bargnani Scoring/Rebounding Average:
    5. Will Bosh get traded (Yes/No)?
    6. Which rotation player will miss the most games due to injury?
    7. Turkoglu Scoring Average:
    8. Other than Jack, our best sixth man will be:
    9. Record on January 1st (33 games):
    10. One free prediction:
