Are you guys being realistic or what? >70? I dun see that happening until I really see it to be happening. 60 is still a reasonable thought, but I wouldn't count on it.

I wouldn't even jinx the ideas...let the season show the truth and how well our team plays and match up with others, then the record means something.

If I were to really make the bold prediction, 58 to 61 is mine, but I won't count on it totally.

It beats having to WITNESS the record unfolding to chasing a predicted record.

It took years of playing together until they hit that mark with Jordan. Maybe next year. I don't see 70's this year. At most maybe mid-60's.

Keep in mind that 2 of our stars just came off a heavy load in the summer, our starting center just came off of knee surgery, and Puke Walton is still on this team.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say 73.


BSPN doesn't know anything.lol

bynum half a season/pau half a season=57. how much more with these guys full seasons.

i as well am going out on a limb and saying 75-7. they are the best/deepest team by far. minor injuries can't effect this team much. as long as the core of bynum/kobe/pau are healthy they will wrap the west up no problem.
'08-'09: 75-7

Not true. Jordan was just coming off his 17 game season where he had no chemistry with his team and wasn't in full basketball shape. There were plenty of new guys on the squad. In fact, the only player, besides MJ, from the 1st 3-peat that was on the 2nd was Pippen.

92-93 (Season before he retired)
Scottie Pippen
Horace Grant
BJ Armstrong
Scott Williams
Bill Cartwright
Stacey King
Trent Tucker
Will Purdue
John Paxson
Rodney McCray
Darrell Walker
Corey Williams
Ed Nealy

95-96 (72 win season)
Scottie Pippen
Luc Longley
Steve Kerr
Ron Harper
Dennis Rodman
Bill Wennington
Jack Haley
Jud Buechler
Dickey Simpkins
James Edwards
Jason Caffey
Randy Brown
John Salley

This is based on the previous season, not the upcoming season. Unfortunately, we all know what happened in the end.

Frankly, I think the West being as tough as it is, plus the improvement of many Eastern teams, will make it difficult for ANY time to win 60+ games this year.

BS.

With teams like Dallas, Denver and Phoenix falling apart, anything below 60 wins is a disappointment...

The key name in that equation is Scottie Pippen, one of the best small forwards to play the game. And like you mentioned, this is Jordan coming back from a smaller load season. Kobe's coming off of a season where he went to the finales, won a gold medal, all on a broken pinky.

Still doesn't change the fact that MJ really hadn't played with these guys much outside of Pip. One of the greatest things about the 72 win Bulls was that they really didn't have a lot of experience together, yet they steamrolled the league from the start. Our team is mostly still intact but it'll be interesting to see if Bynum fits in the way Pau instantly fit in. If he does, the league better watch out.

I don't hold Bynum and Gasol at Pippen's level yet. Pippen was insane on both ends.

I can see it next year, but this year, with Bynum coming off of knee surgery, Kobe and Gasol in the Olympics, I'm not too positive. I hope I'm wrong.

77-5


hahah i wish. No but in reality i think with everyone healthy this season this team can win a good 60+ games. What i think their record will be is 61-21. But healthy is the key word.
