Sure, it is only a little past mid-season and things could change rapidly given the fickle flow of fate that NBA teams go through during any given regular season. But for the moment, let this prognosticator toot like a rooster, just in case a later turn of events has him eating crow. (Update: final season results>>>>> http://forevernumerology.com/sports/numerologist-prognosticator-hit-predicted-win-total-trail-blazers-2015-16/
I’m a long time practicing numerologist who was an above average athlete in high school and competed in multiple sports. I have maintained interest to some extent with sports, despite the crass commercialism, in house politics and socio-politico pressures that have impacted the artistry, performance and talent of the games. You may have perused some of my previous contributions to this website.
For a little fun and variety I included a sports blog on my website Numerology Rising. I have picked bowl games for years and occasionally take a shot at the Triple Crown horse races. What got me started was my interest in the Portland Trail Blazers. I don’t usually get too attached to any pro sports because of reason mentioned above. That, and being tired having to put up with the incredibly prepubescent behavior of taunting, mocking and peacock prancing that permeates almost all facets of sports these days.
While living in the Vancouver/Portland metroplex region years ago I started watching the Blazers and became a fan because of the relative lack of egomania among players, dignified team behavior and the emphasis upon teamwork that was instilled by the coming of coach Terry Stotts. During the last 2014-15 season I started to numerically analyze the team, management and players by the numbers. I even analyzed the performance and outcome of a couple games (before they were played) with surprising accuracy.
After the loss of 4 starters from that campaign, the 2015-16 coming season appeared to be a total pending debacle. Hundreds of NBA analysts around the country, along with the local contingent of press, radio, television, edgy and rippity amateur bloggers and pundits of all sorts wrote off the Blazers.
Most were just waiting to see how poorly they would perform, and how high they would be in the coming draft at the end of the season. The Vegas odds makers had them winning around 17 to 26 games total for the season. The general consensus among sports pros was that they would perform similar to what the odds makers were saying, with a few hinting at maybe 30 wins give or take.
Upon taking a numerical look at the coming season during August of 2015 before the team had even assembled, it would have been easy to make the same conclusion as the other analysts. As described in the blog, “Trail Blazers Break Out Player: Break out Season 2015-16”, I went against some of the conventional numerological thinking and took the high road in my assessment of this season.
At that time I predicted a winning season with play off numbers. My specific range was 47 to 49 wins with a plus minus of 3. The final range being 44 to 51 wins. I clearly indicated they would have an improved record the second half of the season compared to the first half. This was because of change in vibration to a 9 universal year.
As of this writing they are 22-26 and heading toward the all star break (updated to 27-27 at the break). The blazers have already won more games than all odds makers predicted, and for the moment are clearly in the running to make a play off position. If they maintain a slightly improved pace from now until the end of the season as I have previously predicted, they will end up right in the mix for such a placement.
Of course, there are always the chances of NBA vagaries of injury, health or accidents that can derail their progress. Without such bum luck, old numerology guy sits in the position of being the only sports prognosticator to so accurately predict the Blazers 2015-16 season fate , thus outperforming nearly 1,000 professional analysts (including previous NBA players) across the country! Time will tell, but for now I stand on my roosters perch.
To get a even better perspective as to where the Blazers are this year>>> you may want to go back to the first analysis where it all began.
