53 wins would be garbage with this team and I'm honestly expecting much more - this is a stacked roster

Why are you ruining your credibility? You are shooting yourself in the foot here.

They win 35 last yr and could've won 45 without him this year.. heck, Westbrook nearly won 53 with trash next to him in 17'

Victor oladipo had the potential to be 20ppg top 20 player and Adams has the potential to be a top 10 center... except those things actually happened . Canít forget a past 18ppg guy in kanter

And watch the Lakers have an elite defense because of a how hard the young guys will be playing

Y'all will see and I will bump this thread midseason

Most of my best predictions have been regarding the Lakers.. I have a good feel about what will happen with them

This team was on a sharp upward trajectory without lebron

They were winning 45 games or so this year without hi

So 53 wins with lebron, rondo and all that hype is a joke

You'll see

All it proves is MJ and Lebron (my two favorite players) are better than Durant.

That's all it is.

Of course I knew it would be a long thread too.

You'll see

This is the post i'll point to when the Lakers are on pace to win 60

Its a fact that 45 wins WITHOUT lebron was a distinct possibility for this fast-growing team

So how is 53 wins with lebron realistic or impressive?

You'll see - lebron/Ingram/kuzna will be too much for most teams

If youre at the point of pretending this squad winning a ring which likely requires beating the Warriors wouldnt be an over achievement you are trolling too hard. Even for you...its too much. Youre just being dishonest for no reason. Stop with this nonsense.

You're just hedging your bets bro. If Lakers miss the playoffs then you say Lebron sucks but if the Lakers exceed expectations then you give credit to everyone else but Lebron.

Too transparent, nice try.

This is not a weak roster and the narrative that conference finals is a big accomplishment is nonsense

The only caveat is that lebron is older - if he plays like he's 34 (instead of the MVP) then forget it

You call the warriors the goat team while simultaneously stating that LeBron beating them would not be an over achievement. Which is it?

This team is somewhere between “Meh” and pretty solid. 53 wins would be a great year.


4 for 10 is the goat?

if he won this year it would be a total rig job like 2016 with another suspension or a wade'esq 2006 free throw bonanza so thats all people would focus on


personally i think the lakers are dog shit top to bottom and will be lucky to get the 6th seed.

and the only reason theyel be that good is because the league will gift them a ton of wins
