ESPN’s Summer Forecast series continued Tuesday with its rankings for Western Conference teams for the 2010-11 season. ESPN’s panel of 93 experts has low expectations for the Warriors, ranking them 14th out of 15 teams, with a projected record of 29 wins, 53 losses.
Here’s what ESPN wrote about the Warriors:
Warriors fans got their wish when Chris Cohan agreed to sell the team after 15 long years. Now comes the hard part for Golden State: Taking the raw materials on hand and making the team competitive in a tough conference. With Don Nelson’s future and the roster in flux, our panel sees incremental steps, not a giant leap forward.
What do you think about this? Do you think ESPN is underestimating the Warriors, or does their projection sound about right?
Your thoughts on … 29 wins? Higher, lower or just right? Fourteenth in the West? Higher, lower or just right?
