What do you think your starting 5 will individually average
With the season 2 months away, and starting line ups beginning to look concrete going into the sesaon; what do you think each of your starting 5 players average? Did you team have a huge change in the offseason, resulting in changes in your teams top scorer/rebounder/assist man? Feel free to include your teams 6th man
my prediction, Lakers:
nash - 10/8 (really depends on how ball dominant kobe is this season)
kobe - 25/4reb/4assits
meta - 12/5reb/2 assists. on 45%+ from the field
pau - 16/10/3assists/1.5 blocks
Russell Westbrook :24ppg 5rpg 6apg
James Harden (I think he will start):19ppg 4rpg 5apg
Kevin Durant:30ppg 8.5rpg 4apg
Serge Ibaka:10ppg 8rpg 3.5bpg
Kendrick Perkins 6ppg 7rpg 1.5bpg
felton- 12 ppg, 7 apg, 2 rpg
shumpert (when hes back) 12 ppg 4 apg, 4 rpg
carmelo 25 ppg 3 apg 6 rpg
amare 16 ppg 2 apg 7 rpg
chandler 8 ppg 2 apg 8 rpg 2 bpg
Curry- 16ppg, 3rpg, 8apg
Thompson- 14ppg, 3rpg, 2apg
Barnes- 11ppg, 4rpg, 2apg
Lee- 19ppg, 9rpg, 3apg
Bogut- 10ppg, 10rpg, 2apg, 2bpg
Rajon Rondo - 14ppg 11apg 5rpg 2spg
Avery Bradley - 12ppg 2.5apg 3rpg 1.5spg
Paul Pierce - 17ppg 3apg 5rpg 1spg
Brandon Bass - 11ppg 7rpg .5apg .6bpg .5spg
KG - 16ppg 8rpg 2apg 1bpg 1spg
Jason Terry - 14ppg 2apg 2rpg .6spg
Ty Lawson - 17 PPG, 7 APG, 3 RPG, 2 SPG.
Andre Iguodala - 15 PPG, 5 APG, 6 RPG, 1.5 SPG
Danilo Gallinari - 18 PPG, 3.5 APG, 6 RPG, .5 SPG, .5 BPG
Kenneth Faried - 10 PPG, 9 RPG, 1 SPG, 1.5 BPG
JaVale McGee - 9 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 1 SPG, 2.5 BPG
McGee averaged 10 ppg in just 20 mpg for Denver, I think his role increases and he averages something like 14&9 - a mini breakout season
Kirk Hinrich - 11 ppg 6.5 apg 1.3 spg
Rip Hamilton - 12 ppg 3 rpg 1.5 apg
Luol Deng - 19 ppg 7.5 rpg 3 apg
Carlos Boozer - 17.5 ppg 9 rpg 1.7 apg
Joakim Noah - 13.5 ppg 11.1 rpg 3 apg
(Rose?) - 19.5 ppg 8 apg 3.5 rpg
To the guy who made this post. Do you mind putting Dwight Howard's prediction stat line. That's kind of a big deal haha
Andrew Bynum - 22 ppg 12 reb 2 blk
Jrue Holiday - 16 ppg 7 apg 1.5 steals
Evan Turner - 13 ppg 4 apg 7 reb
Spencer Hawes - 9 ppg 8 reb 2.5 ast 1.5 blk
Thaddeus Young - 12 ppg 5 reb 1 ast
Dorell Wright - 10 ppg 5 reb 2 ast
PG- Knight 15ppg
SG- Stuckey 14ppg
dont think drummond will start
Heat and Wizards
PG: Chalmers - 8ppg, 5apg, 2 rpg 1.8spg
SG: Wade - 24ppg, 6.5apg, 5rpg, 1.2spg, 1.6bpg
SF: James - 27.5ppg, 8.5rpg, 8apg, <-- I really think he can with a better bostrich, a healthy wade and allen will
PF: Shane Battier - 5ppg, 5rpg, 3apg, 1.6spg, 0.8bpg
C: Chris Bosh - 18ppg, 9rpg, 1.8bpg
Wizards: Dunno about the rest of the group but I think that Wall and Beal's statline will be:
Wall: 20ppg, 8.5apg, 4rpg
Beal: 15ppg, 5apg, 3rpg
Wall 19 ppg, 9.5 apg, 4.5 rpg, 1 spg
Beal 14 ppg, 2.5 apg, 3.5 rpg/Crawford(6th man) 17 ppg, 3 apg, 2.8 rpg, 1 spg
Ariza 11ppg, 5 rpg, 2.5 apg, 1.7 spg
Nene 15.5, 7.5 rpg, 1.1 bpg 2.2 apg
Okafor 11ppg 9.5 rpg, 1.5 bpg
I believe Crawford will start the beginning of the season since him and Wall have chemistry but Beal should beat him out.
Mavs very interesting with 3 new starters
Collison 15 ppg 6.5 apg 3.5 rpg 1.5 spg
Mayo 22 ppg 4 apg 4 rpg 1 spg
Marion 11 ppg 7 rpg 2 asp 1 spg
Dirk 25 ppg 7 rpg 3 asp
Kamen 15 ppg 9 rpg 2 asp 1.5 bpg
A lot of idiots in this thread, Kevin Seraphin is a lock to be in the Wizards starting lineup and is the 2nd best player on the team.
Wall 21ppg 8.5 apg
Crawford 17ppg 3rpg 3apg
Ariza 8ppg 4rpg 2 apg
Booker 9ppg 8rpg
Seraphin 15ppg 9.5rpg 2bpg
At least my prediction was more realistic. Seraphin showed some up side after the trade deadline but don't c'mon now he's still got a long way to go before he isnt considered a project.And on top of that Nene and Okafor aren't getting paid all this money to be bench players
Dirk scoring 25 a game lolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll I'll give you 50/1 odds on Dirk to score 25 a game.
And he still has Mayo getting 22 a game lolllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll, what are the Mavs going to score 115 ppg?
I am not sure if Battier will start. Anthony/Pitt/UD/of Hamilton I don't know who but dont think they are going to start him in the regular season going small all the time+ he is older.
Some dude has Holiday with 7 assists and Turner with 4 unreal will be close on who has more.
Faried and McGee numbers are too low especially scoring, simply will get too many minutes not to get more.
Avery Bradley 2.5 ast a game too low with the minutes he gets at backup point
Also stevie your scoring averages are mostly way too high barring injury you have like 85 points from 6 guys then the Celtics still have Melo, Green, Sullinger, Wilcox, Lee? So you think those players are going to average like 15 points combined???????????????????????????????????????????? Unless there are a lot of injuries you will be off.
I think I speak for the entire forum when I say this:
Riley you have the Mavericks starters averaging 88 a game, they will average about 94 as a team don't you thinkn there might be somthing wrong guy?
They have talent on the bench Roddy, Brand, Carter, Delonte, and maybe Cunningham could be good so I don't see any starters playing over 32 minutes a game
I will leave forever if Dallas' starters score 88 a game ok?
Dwight: 16 ppg...2apg.....10rpg
Booker and Seraphin started over Nene last year I dont see why that can't continue
Nene was battling a foot injury and they traded for Okafor there's your reason
83 point starting lineup from the slowest team in the league is too much someone has to sacrifice, and why is Metta going to get 13 ppg do you have some kind of inside info that he is shooting like Kyle Korver now?
83 points ain't too much and keep in mind they won't all play 82 games so some of their individual stats will increase while other guys r out. Also metta is gonna get left open a lot and he played great down the stretch last season. He averaged 12 a game in the playoffs and shit 39% from three, those looks should be even better this year
Also the lakers 5 starters of Kobe(28), pau(17), bynum(19), sessions(11), and metta(8) scored 83 a game. You don't think this years starters can do what they already did last year with Nash in the mix?
Mike Conley- 13.5ppg, 7.4apg, 2.8rpg, 2.1spg, 0.1bpg
Tony Allen- 8.4ppg, 3.8rpg, 1.4apg, 1.7spg, 0.5bpg
Rudy Gay- 20.7ppg, 6.5rpg, 2.4apg, 1.6spg, 0.9bpg
Zach Randolph- 17.8ppg, 10.5rpg, 1.9apg, 0.3bpg, 1.0spg
Marc Gasol- 15.3ppg, 9.8rpg, 3.4apg, 1.0spg, 2.1bpg
The Lakers had the worst bench and highest starter minutes in the league last year. Also Sessions played less than half the year i think for them right? now they have Jamison, Hill, Meeks, and who can take a little of the load off. Artest played big minutes in the playoffs because they had little depth and they needed him to guard Durant, I don't see him playing those type of minutes during the regular season. I dont think way under 83 or anything just a little high though. I think Pau, Metta, and Kobe all a little high, even if Kobe guns like last year which is unlikely his minutes will probably be too low to get you 26.
Goran Dragic 17.6 ppg 3.5 rpg 7.8 apg 1.4 spg
Shannon Brown 11.3 ppg 2.8 rpg 1.7 apg
Michael Beasley 19.3 ppg 6.2 rpg 1.9 apg
Luis Scola 13.4 ppg 7.3 rpg 2.4 apg
Marcin Gortat 12.6 ppg 9.4 rpg 1.1 bpg
Gortat from leading scorer to 4th leading scorer?
No one from last years Suns team could create their own shot except for Nash. And he was concentrating on distributing the ball and putting his teammates in a better position to score. Dragic can create his own shot and will have the ball in his hands most of the time. Beasley for better or worse will have the green light to score and Scola has an array of post moves to his disposal. Marcin may score more than Scola but he will be the 3rd scoring option at best.

Curry- 15, 6, 3.5
Klay- 13, 2.5, 2.5
Barnes- 12.5, 2.5, 5
Lee- 19, 3.5, 9
Bogut- 11, 2, 8
two warriors fans say: Klay: 13, 2.5, 2.5 / Klay: 14ppg, 3rpg, 2apg
Klay Tommy-Gun will be a beast next year: 16-18++ points 4-5 rebounds 2-3 assist
Curry will score a lot, and Barnes should get his touches, I don't think Klay will be the #1 option. Especially with David Lee too.
Depends how any minutes he gets, Rush, Jefferson, and Green have better floor games but his ppm will be high.
