I like the playlist circa '2005...

Damn Troy Murphy...

the record is in doubt now, because at this rate they will actually finish 71-11. (one loss for every seven wins)

Do you guys think that Lakers fans are greedy? Other fans in the NBA wait 10 or 20 years for their team to get a sniff at the title, yet Lakers fans feel that every year should be a title. Every year the Lakers don't win the title it feels like the end of the world. As of this season every LOSS feels like the end of the world. e.g. Detroit, @ Indy.
and, how is it that this franchise can build up Dynasty after Dynasty through the years? how does that happen and why?
------------

errors by Dbrix & Gsmalls include:

Dbrix: "'04-'05 34-48 season...when kobe had to drop 35 a game..." that was actually the '05-'06 season where kobe averaged 35ppg to salvage a playoff appearance.

Gsmalls: "wilt chamberneezy". that is actually Shaq's self-made nickname, but Gsmalls used it to refer to the great Wilt Chamberlain.

Dbrix: "the game before Pau Gasol graced us by putting on that Purple and Gold". Actual, the toronto game was the day of the trade, but the game wasn't the last game B.P.(before Pau). They actually had a game on superbowl sunday vs Washington in which Pau was still a spectator. His debut was on the following tuesday vs NJ.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk(shaq) when i point these things out. =)

-----------------------

and yes, Gilbert is a headcase. thank you Dbrix. sorry 'bout your chargers.=(

"mike dunleavy Jr. lol...." i love Gsmalls. He is a great addition. He's very insightful and knows the game of basketball. He's like the antithesis to Steve Kerr.

Lakers winning percentage right now is .882 multiplied that by 82 games=72.324 wins

Pythagorean Expectation (2008-2009 season as of 16 games)
EXPWIN%= Points For ^13.5/ Points for ^13.5+ Points Against^ 13.5
EXPWIN%= 1848^13.5/1848^13.5 + 1631^13.5
EXPWin%= 1.260307593E44/1.260307593E44 + 2.334148454E43
EXPWin%=1.260307593E44/1.493722438E44
EXPWin%= .8437361362 * 82 games= Lakers expected to win 69.1 games

the equation is pretty accurate..look at Lakers last year

EXPWIN%= 8904^ 13.5/ 8904^13.5 + 8309^13.5
EXPWIN% 2.086409459E53/2.086409459E53 + 8.20178246 E52
EXPWIN% 2.086409459E53/ 2.906587705E53
ExpectedWin%= .7178209195 * 82 games =58.8 Wins or , Actual Record= 57-25





Hopefully Pythagoras is wrong, or Lakers just play better defense.

Lakers are going to win under 70 games this season with the defense they play.
