What is your gut feeling? No conditions attached.
I will also post any other predictions I see online as I come across them.
Going backwards? NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami? | ProBasketballTalk
This is going to be our first winning season in a long time. 43-41.
I'm figuring on 31-51. The conference looks stronger. We just have too many new pieces. None look amazing at this point. Too many question marks ??????????????????????????????????

Chauncey Billups seems to be on winning teams.
Those articles are spinning the same trash about Josh Smith that every sports hack churns out. I doubt that Dre starts, and even if he did, those three would make one of the most dangerous forward mix in the league. two are incredibly athletic ++ defenders who wreak havoc in transition. Two are fantastic passers. Two are fantastic offensive rebounders. All three are very good defensive rebounders. If KCP/Knight/Billups can sink planted, open jumpers, then let teams pack the paint. They will regret it.
It's the SF spot that's open for grabs. Knight/Billups/../Smith/Monroe will start with Stuckey/Bynum/Drummond anchoring the second unit.
. do not forget Bucket of Turds....sure, not at every game but....
43 wins. Unless Pope explodes we probably have the weakest back court rotation in the L but the front court will win us alot of games.
46 wins 36 losses
After the Buzzer - Why the Detroit Pistons will make the playoffs in 2013
Detroit Pistons to be better in 2013-14, just not by much according to ESPN.com writer | MLive.com
13/14 EC Standings: 1. Indiana - adding Scola & Copeland is gonna make 'em better 2. Miami - LeBron gets these guys to the 2 spot. Wade's mileage keeps them from the 1-spot. 3. Chicago - If they're healthy they're a damn fine team and built well for the playoffs. 4. Brooklyn - Can these talented old guys gel as a team? I bet TRG secretly wishes he played for Mikky Prokhorov! 5. Detroit - The EC betta recognize! 6. New York - Too injury prone. Melo will "lead" that team to the 6th spot. 7. Atlanta - The most boring team in the NBA? 8. Cleveland - Irving will carry Kyrie that team to the playoffs. Good, I don't wanna see Gilbert's kid at the lottery again next spring. 9. Washington - Lotta talent, not much direction. 10.Orlando - They got a bunch of under the radar guys that are damn good! Dipo will be ROY. 11. Milwaukee - Good stable of bigs. ...not much else. 12. Toronto - Nobody will even notice that the Raps missed the playoffs again next year. 13. Philly - They need to change their team name to the "Suxers" for next season. 14. Charlotte - ...Yeah right, ...whatever. 15. Boston - Ainge ya glad I didn't say Charlotte? "Tanks" for nothin' Danny! (obscure Caddieshack reference)
Looks like I'm the only one with a 50+ win prediction so far...
I wonder if they'll give us a few more wins after the Jennings trade today.
I don't know. It seems that many do not think that we'd be able to score enough points to be relevant. Now they'll say that we have 2 chuckers and that paint will be clogged.

I think I'll wait until pre-season before making my guess. 'Predictable Joe' is all kinds of crazy right now.
