50 i think is pretty do-able.

More like 40 is a more plausible target. The rosters very talented, and Chris Paul's just gonna be Chris Paul.

Injuries have been holding down the team, but as far as next season. I see everyone being healthy.

I see no reason at all New Orleans shouldn't be a 50 win team.

I think they will be the Utah Jazz of next season. People wont expect too much of them, but they will surprise everyone and win a ton of games. Hopefully Stojakovic is healthy for the whole season, and another year for Paul to develop, along with Tyson Chandlers new found offensive skill + another solid draft pick.

This team should definitely be at least a 50 win team.

I honestly bellieve that if everybody stayed healthy, we would have been a 50 win team. I hope Paul can remain healthy and not have the injury bug for the rest of his career like Baron Davis and Grant Hill.

I expect every Hornet to come to training camp rested, healthy, and ready. I'm glad Paul isn't playing Team USA ball. His bones need time to rest and he needs to get some body conditioning. He's been playing ball straight, including the summer since he left Wake. I'm glad Peja didn't try to come back this season. Backs are nothing to play with. Get it healthy and be ready for next season.

That is the problem with getting older more succesful players.They are a gamble.Bobby Jackson is always hurt and Peja finally broke down.It is a shame that it happened at the same time.
