I checked out the article and have a few basic observations.
1) I believe the Raps will win more than 32 games. The author actually thinks we'll be worse than last year.
2) If I read things correctly, the author predicts we will lose 3 games to each of the following teams: Miami, Charlotte, New Jersey, Detroit. The author also thinks we'll get swept by Golden State. Of those 14 predicted loses, I think we'll actually win 5 to 7 of them. Last year, we actually did okay against Miami and Charlotte. I don't see why they are now going to own us. Even if we just split with Miami, Charlotte, New Jersey, and Detroit, that's 4 extra wins.
3) The author seems to think we are going to be absolutely awful on the road. I don't think we'll be a great road team, but I think we'll win a handful of the games the author has us losing.
39-45 wins is more reasonable.
