Hmmmmmmm... some of the things I don't want to chime in on because I don't want to jinx it. Not going to pay attention to injury and just have it in my head that we're going to be healthy.

Wins: 53
Playoff seed: 4th sed behind OKC, LAC, and SAS in that order.
Leading scorer: Stephen Curry, 20.1 PPG. I really want his scoring average to come down a little bit. We did lose Landry and Jack, but I want Barnes, Thompson, and Bogut to contribute more on offense so that we have a more balanced attack. Maybe this can be accomplished if we bring down Lee's scoring average. I should take a look at the team's PPG average from last year and do a better breakdown of how I want the point distribution to be.
Leading rebounder: Andrew Bogut, 11.3 RPG. This guys eats rebounds for breakfast.
Leading assister: Stephen Curry, 7 APG
Leader shot-blocker: Andrew Bogut, 2.3 BPG
6th Man: Klay Thompson
Best offseason pickup: Andre Iguodala
Best offseason pickup BESIDES Iguodala: Jermaine O'Neal
Heir apparent to Jim Barnett: I hope it isn't Tolbert. I've listened to Chris Webber on NBAtv and TNT, and I really want him to come in take the job. I don't know about the money he's getting paid or what relationship he may have with the Warriors' organization, but he's a really good color commentator.
Playoff results: I want gold.
Number of all-stars: Stephen Curry gets in as a reserve.
Awards & accolades: Curry is going to make more than 274 threes this year. I don't think it'll be by much though, but I think he hits the 280 mark. Whoever our 6th man is, whether it be Thompson or Barnes, they'd better win the 6MOTY award. If anyone has a chance of being on an all NBA squad it's Bogut. He has the path of least resistance. I think Dwight will be No. 1 and Marc will be No. 2. After that it's anyone's guess. For everyone else it's going to be tough. I don't think Curry will beat out Rose, Westbrook, or Chris Paul. If they're all healthy, it's just not going to happen. It's going to be tough for Lee too with Love coming back. The more I think about it, I think it's shameful that Blake Griffin is our generations' best PF. That's really sad to me.
From "we believe", to "we belong", to "we gon beatcho ass!"

I got Griffin HEALTHILY behind Love.

Like, I see Lee as an 81 overall. I see Griffin as an 85 and Love is a 91 or 92. Blake Griffin may be this generation's most popular PF, but he's damn sure not the best. This has happened 3 generations in a row, where a highlight forward (Tweens Griffin, 2000's Garnett, 90's Barkley) tries to make a case that they're as good as the unspectacular but undeniably better alternative (Tween Love, 2000's Duncan, 90's Malone). If Kevin Love can stand upright and walk (even with a hobble), he's good for 6 more rebounds than Griffin.

I haven't been so excited as a fan of the team since the Webber rookie season and I think more of this team. I think if health permits that will be over 55 wins, but safe pick is 50-55. I do think OKC will start slowly since Westbrook is out for a while longer and the team will finish second to the Spurs in the West, though Clips could finish ahead of us.
