ESPN predicts 55 wins, and I'm going with 60-62. To me it all depends on how the starting 5 works together, depending also on Bynum's progression and if he's picked up from where he left off last season.

I think that these Lakers could be as good as the 96 Bulls; however, the schedule is tougher, basically pushing 70+ wins out of the question.

I'll say 60, without scrutinizing the schedule. To be honest, if they don't hit that number, I'll be pretty disappointed.

I'd also like to see this team go on a long 10-15 game winning streak at some point. They have the talent to do it.

Isn't this the same as the record thread?

Anyway, I'd go with low 60s and not more than 63....I dunno, hadn't seen them go that record for a long while...:P

I really don't care, as long as we get to playoffs as number 1 seed in the west. Playoffs are were we need records.

Conservatively with good health it would be between 55-60. In the ultra competitive West that is just about par for the course.
Five guys on the court working together can achieve more than five talented individuals who come and go as individuals.

They will go 58 - 24 because just like every one else said the west is even tougher this year and that amount of wins should get them the first seed.

Ditto. In the end, that's all that matters.
