Preseason is usually a time we get a glimpse of a couple of guys and try to figure out if a player or 2 can make the end of the bench. Since training camp usually has about 18 players or so, after a couple of cuts and dnp cd's, I expect the end of the bench to dominate preseason and people will start to say "they have a pretty good bench,." That will be the start of this lightning in a bottle season.

I'm changing my guess from 59 to "above 60."

I think Hart, Kuzma, and Ingram would all be 20 ppg scorers without LeBron, this year, and I believe in Zubac's work ethic and development, as well as mgmt's trust in him.

I even believe Lonzo will be improved, based on playing with better players around him, additional strength and experience, and behind closed door improvements he's making.

They're going to be the Warriors, Rockets, and Celtics nightmare, while Kawhi wonders where he'll fit.

My first thought after signing LeBron was 47 wins, and I'm sticking to it. I hope my estimate is low, and it may well be.

We've got a tough early schedule, so I'll be happy if we're over .500 after the first month, but our team will get better and our schedule won't always be so difficult.

Uncertainty for the Laker W-L record in upcoming season seems the greatest in decades, as never before has the team's success been tied so strongly to the health of one player so far above any other set of three factors together.

Risk assessment required. I think there's a 50-50 chance that LeBron misses half of the season or more due to age and the risk of injury from cumulative wear-n-tear and the randomness of injury.

I'm saying there's the highest probability that the Lakers reach 45 regular season wins: the 50-50 weighted mean between a season with completely healthy LeBron (50 wins) and one without himat all (40 wins.)

2019 may not have a 2nd max player because Ingram, Kuzma, and to a lesser degree Hart, are going to play like stars and it would be redundant to bring in someone to do what they do. They won't be the #3 player in the league, but their production will be too similar to justify paying max to someone when they are high quality players for a lot less.

You heard it here first.

53 wins (the rest losses)

INJURY PREDICTIONS:

Celtics and 76rs will have key players injured (again) long term

Warriors will have at least one of their stars out long term with injuries.

Rockets will win LESS games than last year (and blame the defense)

Thunder will win LESS games than last year (and NOT blame Carmelo)
