The last week has been very eye opening for everyone where Mike Jordan is concerned. But how many wins will they get? Will the rest of the team step up, and give Mr. Jordan the support that he needs to be successful? How many minutes can he play? How many games, before he gets hurt because of his age? When the team is loosing will Jordons minutes go up? Alot of questions remain with 8 days left till the season starts. All smart money is on MJ to succeed..........

I would imagine that MJ at 38 is worth about 20-30 wins for a young team, taking into consideration injuries and other odd factors...

I agree, even with Michael, this team is a .500 team at best this year.

I think they'll still be a bad team. I say 37 wins.

The Wizards record will be somewhere 30-34 victories. And I know the East is terrible (on average), but I don't think it's that bad to where the Wizards earn a plyoff spot.

I think they will get 40-45 wins and grab the 8th playoff spot.
What happens from there on will be very interresting (they should lose 0-3 against the Bucks, Raptors or Magic but who knows...).

I guess also about 40, but who cares?!
Everyone just wants to see Jordan play.

I still hope they gonna make it to the playoffs, so we can watch MJ having fun killing the opponents, but the wizs won't get far with that neither...

39-43 Jordan is great, but not a miracle worker. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif[/img]

They look pretty solid right now, proving most critics wrong.
Too bad Leattner broke his leg, Im not sure they can keep up the .500 pace without him. If they can they have a pretty good shot at making the playoffs in a weak east (will be tough though since they are ahead of some teams right now who should definitely be better, like Philly). Im also not sure if they can keep up with teams like Charlotte, Indiana or Toronto.

No way they make the playoffs.

Ok "a pretty good shot" may be too optimistic.
But I think they have a chance of sneaking in as 8th seed.
Much depends on how long Leattner will be missing.

Not as sure, but they're still a longshot.

I didn't think there is anyway in hell this team could be .500 for the season, but they might do it. This I've pretty much picked up, they'll beat the teams they're suppose to, Jordan won't allow them not to. Then they'll probably get a few games they're NOT suppose to win. So NOW I could see them being a .500 team. In the Eastern conference, that gets them in the playoffs.

I admit I've underestimated the Jordan legend. The Wizards have a below average team that will overachieve and probably make the playoffs. Amazing.

And I wouldn't want to be the #1 seed in the East. Jordan can take over a playoff series and the first round is only 5 games.
