Im going to say over on both.

90 points a game is for sure an over.

Hinrich, Gordon, Deng, Tyrus, Thabo, having Nocioni back, all with another year under their belts - then adding Joe Smith. Im am going to say they average 95-98 this season.

Being .500 could be a coin flip. But I think they can do it.

You (I think it was you) said Smith is gonna be a bust. He's P J like, younger and they've got up and comers (Noah and Ty) waiting to take his min. There's injuries and whatever over 100 games (pre, post and 82 games) Pax was right in insuring for 5mil/season. I am glad it's not my money

I'll take over on both. Depth allows Skiles to rest and push players depending on the game. Ninety points per game doesn't seem difficult for this team.

I will also say over for both. We pretty much have the same team as last year, so they will know how to better prepare for the circus trip, and if we don't average over 90 points/game with this team, then we don't deserve to play in the NBA.

Just an FYI, Atlanta had the fewest team ppg last season with 93.7. The Bulls finished at 98.8. 90 is a very low bar. When weighing a team, 96 or 97 ppg seems to be a pretty fair cut-off in the East. Only 3 teams in the West scored less than 96 ppg last season.

But is there any indication that y'all will be worse this season than last? Why is it even a question that Chicago will be over .500? You were almost .600 last year and only lost Brown; but gained Smith and Noah. And Thomas has another year under his belt. If I were a Bulls fan, I'd be really disappointed if you didn't win 50 games and got eliminated before the Eastern conf finals.

This is a much better Bullz team from the start of last season and I think they will have no problem going over both.

.500 at end of the CIRCUS trip (you know the one where we usually start the season 0-9). I think if we can gel together well at the start, we might get a better start to the season and have more confidence. fro season Im going for 55 wins.
Yeah, should have raised that to 95.0 a game.
