Default Metta World Peace: "We definitely want to beat the Bulls record and go 73-9"

Quote:
ďWe definitely want to beat the Bulls record and go 73-9, thatís definitely something that I want to do. Whoever is out there at the beginning of the season then we gotta get it. Itís as simple as that. We just have to go get it. (Host: So that Bulls record is something youíre thinking about?) No question. You try to snatch records before you leave this earth. You gotta try to do a lot of great things so itís definitely a goal. With Dwight Howard, (Steve) Nash, Kobe (Bryant), myself, Pau (Gasol) and then (Antawn) Jamison and a lot of great additions itís something thatís possible.Ē

Metta got high expectations for being the 5th wheel.

Jordan never played with anyone as dominant as Dwight so it should be possible.

This. If Lakers don't beat the Bulls record Kobe needs to be dropped out of the top 20 on all time lists.

Not to mention Pippen is better than Dwight... Even if you say Dwight is an all time great defender (which he is), Pippen is at minimum top 5, and I don't see Dwight that far up there considering the "competition" he has faced at the "center" position in his career.

Never take what MWP says with any serious reaction. They like no other team would even try chasing it.

This is one of the possible hurdles for this team; believing they are great before they prove it.

I love me some Metta, but this is a dumb move. That is, talking about it openly before any games or practices have happened.

Had he said this if the team was 55-4, then I can kinda get it.

But nobody in the entire Lakers organization needs to be thinking about regular season wins, and especially not 70 wins. Its the race to 16 thats begins in April is what is important.
