Yeah I mean that'd be great if we could actually put that many points on the board, game in and game out...but we'll see.

I agree about Kobe though, I see Kobe scoring less.His assists per game, rebound per game, steals per game, blocks per game should all be up this season.

As for the rest of the starters I would subtract 1ppg off of each one minus Fisher.

I know LO is our official sixth man of the bench, but I see Farmar possibly contending with him for that spot---at least this year, if for the only reason that it is a contract year and the likelihood of him playing really good is really high(i.e Ariza, Sasha, Walton).Hell I wouldn't be surprised if Phil let him in the rotation before Shannon or even gave him the starting position at the end of the season.

And finally, I'm a Sasha homer so I naturally think he's gonna do better than what you put him down for. :man9:

Rodgers Report: 09/10 Stat Retrospective

A look back at the projections.

Derek Fisher – Point Guard
2009/10 Projections: 80 games, 26.5 minutes, 8.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.1 rebounds

2009/10 Actual: 82 games, 27.2 minutes, 7.5 points, 2.5 assists, 2.1 rebounds

Fisher performed roughly as I'd thought. His poor shooting, even poorer than I'd anticipated, had him coming up about 1 point short of projections.

Kobe Bryant – Shooting Guard
2009/10 Projections: 80 games, 37.3 minutes, 26.5 points, 4.9 assists, 5.7 rebounds

2009/10 Actual: 73 games, 38.8 minutes, 27.0 points, 5.0 assists, 5.4 rebounds

Kobe was right about where I'd projected. His injury was a shame because he was shooting so well early in the season. He might have blown up these projections a bit had it not been for the accumulated effects. I like seeing him inch closer to 5 assists and 6 boards.

Ron Artest – Small Forward
2009/10 Projections: 65 games, 36.7 minutes, 16.3 points, 3.9 assists, 5.5 rebounds

2009/10 Actual: 77 games, 33.8 minutes, 11.0 points, 3.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds

Injuries were a drag for Artest, but as you can see, he play significantly more than I'd projected. It could be that he played through pain. That would account for more games but lower stats. I don't see him hitting 5-6 assists at any point for the Lakers, but I do think he'll rebound better and add another point or two to his average going forward.

Pau Gasol – Power Forward
2009/10 Projections: 73 games, 36.5 minutes, 19.0 points, 4.0 assists, 9.4 rebounds

2009/10 Actual: 65 games, 37.0 minutes, 18.3 points, 3.4 assists, 11.3 rebounds

Gasol mystifies me. 11+ boards? Insane. Otherwise, just what we would expect.

Andrew Bynum – Center
2009/10 Projections: 63 games, 29.5 minutes, 15.1 points, 1.3 assists, 8.1 rebounds

2009/10 Actual: 65 games, 30.4 minutes, 15.0 points, 1.1 assists, 8.3 rebounds

Who knows AB? Apparently my stat projection formula. I want to see more assists from Bynum, but if he can be a black hole on offense and still shoot a good % while playing good D, I'm okay with that. He was one of only 18 players to average 15/8. Not bad.
