Finished up tonight, I'll give the Wolves tomorrow and if they don't make a move will probably put my projections up on Saturday.

At the moment, my biggest variances with your projections are that I am higher on the Griz, Warriors and Rockets and lower on Kings, Hawks and Mavs.

Thoughts on where we might defer:

Warriors/Rockets - I wound up reeling in my highest numbers just a bit and kind of expect them both to dog it this regular season.

Grizzlies - Tough one, wasn't sure how to handle the return of Conley. The Conley I'm imagining returning to them isn't what he once was.

Kings - They really really sucked at getting to the line last season and that's something I project young teams to improve at, we'll see if it happens.

Hawks - Not sure on this one, how low are you thinking on them? 3-4 wins lower wouldn't be much of a big deal. Can't really recommend projecting any team much lower than that.

Mavs - They were like record breakingly good/bad at losing more games than their statistics said they would. Without the not so stealth tank (probably?, maybe there's a real issue there I'm not seeing) I can't see them not taking a solid step forward in the win column.

I have the Hawks at 18 wins, up from my first mark at 16. But this is just a start. I will have to review more closely. I have the Griz at 39 right now. That maybe best case rather than average case; but my gut is thinking good things for them.

So is wintotals not happening this year? It’s my first year here by the way and I’m excited to see how this works out

It is happening with whoever enters. Some may post here at the end. Some may have moved on. Thirty-some hours left to deadline.

Yes, I'll have mine posted sometime today. I thought I had it finished and then for some reason the Hornets were the worst team... at 20 wins. I may end up submitting it as is if I can't find time later.

This will be my final edit. Jimmy Butler is assumed to play on the Wolves this entire season in my projections, clearly.

My final PIPM win projections for the year. Best of luck to everyone.

I treated Butler as a free agent, replaced his minutes with an average backup wing. Feel the Butler fiasco will be a large source of error for all of us this year.
