Going Through Some Internet Stuff, I came across some decent predictions for our beloved SUNS.
The BEST and WORST case Scenario for the team is as follows :-
Best Case Scenario: 50-52 wins, No. 4 seed in West, advance to second round
*** I woudl push the envelope and say we get to the WEST Finals again.
Worst Case Scenario: 43-45 wins, No. 8 seed in West, lose in first round
*** Even with the WEST stacked and getting overloaded with the Clips / Kings / Houston joining the playoff race in earnest. I would still predict us as the 8th seed at worst.

Also, the summer report card for the team is not Great, but it is not as awful as some EXPERTS make it with the loss of STAT.
I agree with most thoughts on the 2 links above.
