Why not 70? I want a historical season!!
I think 70 wins is possible...if we're including the playoffs.
Does anyone remember that game Bulls vs Pacers... the one without Reggie Miller?? Derrick McKey defended MJ on the last play of the game??? MJ was on the wing and ended up taking a jumpshot defended closely by McKey?
I want a video of that last play.
Wow, did Polian hack all of your accounts? If you can win 70 win 70.
Can they get to 70 wins? Eh, history says probably not. But it would be awesome if 70 games is what they won. But I don't think you ever set that as a goal. You play your best and try to win every game and if it's 70 wins then, hey that sure is cool. :cool:
1. Clinch playoff spot.
2. Win division.
3. Best record in East.
4. Best record in NBA.
If we're fortunate enough to do those four things, or even just the first three, I don't really care about the number of wins. Honestly I think we'll do well (or anyone for that matter) to get to 60. Right now we still have a long ways to go to even get #1 checked off the list. It's a long season and one 7-game win streak to start the season is not even close to enough to start talking like this. Getting Memphis tonight to complete this 5-game-in-7-day stretch 5-0 would be amazing and that's good enough for now.
This takes all of the fun out of it. "OHMYGAWDTHEY'REGONNAWIN70"
No. They aren't. I hope they win 60 tho, and that would be an amazing accomplishment.
I am going to blame this thread if the Pacers lose to the Grizzlies tonight
hey, one loss begets another loss, and another loss, and by the end of next week we'll have fired Vogel, traded half the team and be 3 pages deep into the "riggin for Wiggins" thread.
Polian is an arrogant blowhard. If he would lose once a team reached 69 wins
82-0, or I don't renew my season tickets.
Wait, I don't have season tickets.
Nothing wrong with hoping for 70 wins. As everyone else has said I just want home court. I don't think we have a instant offense type of guy off the bench that we would need to get 70 wins. I do think we are built for the playoffs and are on our way to the finals.
Better than any Bird-McHale-Parrish team, any Kareem-Worthy-Magic team, Philly's fo-fo-fo team, any Celtics 60s team, any of Wilts teams including the '72 Wilt-West-Goodrich team that won 33 straight or the 66-67 Wilt-Hal Greer-Chet Walker- Billy Cunningham team with 4 20 ppg scorers?
people seriously contemplating this question lack an appreciation for the history of our league
People?? I think the word that you are looking for is the person.
