I know, right?

ESPN each year crowd sources standings - using the powers of anyone potentially related to the site through TrueHoop or their NBA site - at some point of the offseason. They decided to do this today for the Eastern Conference, because, well, I have no idea. I mean, Greg Monroe and Eric Bledsoe are unsigned, and many rosters aren't finalized. So the timing is weird.

Unsurprisingly, the new-look Bulls and Cavaliers sit at the top of the standings. The Sixers, at 18-64, sit at the bottom. Interestingly, the Sixers are projected to have a worse record than last season, when the team finished 19-63.

Without half a season of a Turner and Hawes and (potentially) no Thaddeus Young, I'm inclined to agree that they should be worse, as those players provided almost all of the on-court value last season. But what do you think? As of now, are the Sixers likely to have a better or worse record than last year?
