We had a similar thread last year. Not many people predicted that three squads would get 60 and especially that the Cavs would get 60 along with the common thought of the Lakers and Celtics. The Magic getting near 60 was also somewhat of a surprise.

With all that being said, how many teams will get to 60? If there will be 1 or more 60 win teams in the 2009-2010 season, which teams will they be and why?

3 or 4. Lakers, Cavs, Magic, Celtics. All will get 55+ but those other 5 games could be a close call for some :shrug:

I see LA,Orlando,With maybe maybe San Antonio. These 3 have great depth, and LA and SA have alot of experience, just got to stay healthy. Orlando is good and only getting better.

Assuming they all stay healthy, the Lakers, Celtics, Magic, and Cavs should all win 60 or close to it.

San Antonio, Dallas, New Orleans (if they get it together with injury issues), and Denver could come close.

Well the most I remember ever winning 60 was 4 teams and that was in 1998. Chi, Utah, LAL and Seattle.

tougher teams means tougher games. tougher games mean tougher schedule. tougher schedule means nba balancing win percentage out. that means.... no team will win ridiculous amounts of game. it will be a hard fought battle this year so no 60 win teams

Lakers, Cavs and Magic for me.

Spurs will win 2nd in the West but Popavich is know to sit Duncan, Ginobli and Parker completely out 4-8 times a season for rest. And if he doesn't sit them out completely, he gives them around 20 minutes to save some energy.

POTENTIALLY SIX....but def wont work out that way
1. Magic- deepest team in NBA.....Carter, Gortat, Bass, Healthy Nelson, Maybe Watson
2. Cavs- 66 wins last season and added Shaq
3. Lakers- 65 wins last season added Artest
4. Celtics- 62 wins last season and Rondo became beast & added Rasheed Wallace
5. San Antonio- 54 wins last season without Ginobli most of season....missed Parker first month of season. Added Richard Jefferson
6. Portland- 54 wins added more experience (young team), Healthy Oden finally?, Andre Miller

Now, it DEF WONT work out that way. But these are the teams to potentially have 60 win seasons. However, we must realize 60 teams just arent that common no matter how much depth or talent you have. I say that there will probi be 3 60-win teams just because it seems more realistic.

I'll give it to the Cavs, Celtics, Magic, Lakers.....each of those teams won at least 60 last year (Magic won 59). And each team got better.

I went with 4.

Lakers -- too good
Cavaliers -- good and very consistent in regular season
Spurs -- look amazing on paper (if healthy)
Magic/Celtics/Nuggets -- Magic can be inconsistent, Celtics have injury/age issues, and Nuggets just might not be good enough . . . one of these three will pull it out though

spurs dont have age injury issues? past to seasons either duncan or manu have been hurt religiously, also i think that on paper the celtics look better

Well, I did put "if healthy."

There's a difference between the injuries, however. I didn't knock either team for last season's injuries, whether it be Garnett, Parker, or Ginobili.

I DID knock teams for the likelihood of injuries. As everyone knows, injuries are more likely as players age. Parker and Jefferson are considerably younger than Garnett, Pierce, Allen, and Wallace. Duncan and Ginobili are getting up there in age, but that's still 4 vs. 2 in my book.

And anyway, with all injuries aside I like the Spurs a whole lot better. Mason, George Hill, McDyess, Finley, Bonner, and Blair looks a lot better to me than Rondo, Tony Allen, Perkins, and House. On top of that, Pierce looked AWFUL in the 2nd half of last season (especially the playoffs). Maybe he'll do like Allen and come back strong, but then there's also the question of whether Allen can do that himself this year. Garnett also didn't look great when he was playing last year. And I don't think anyone would disagree that Poppovich is a much better coach than Rivers.



I didn't take the Celtics out of 60-win contention at all. I just think the Spurs are much, much more likely to get there than the Celtics this season, injuries and everything considered.

3 or 4 teams probably the Lakers, Magic, Celtics, and Cavs 60+ games with the Spurs, Mavs, Nuggets, and maybe the Blazers winning about 53-58 games.

if you include wallace you should include mcdyess and finley for old age/injury, thats 4-4 in my book, also rondo is better than anyone on the spurs not named duncan parker manu or jefferson, and perk is an underrated defender, i dont care to much for tony allen, but they have also added marquis daniels who i believe is pretty versatile, also duncan didnt play that well in the second have of the season either

No, I'm not adding McDyess and Finley. Each team has a pretty clear Big 4 -- the Celtics' all being above 32 and only two of the Spurs' 4 being so.

Rondo and Perkins are fine, but the Celtics bench cannot match the Spurs bench. Let's be serious now.

I have no agenda here -- this is just my honest opinion. If you take off the kelly-colored glasses for a second you might see that.

i can c 4 teams. The Big E3st 3 + Lakers. If Spurs can stay healthy all year long, i can c them getting 60 wins as well. Surprises can happen to as well, like the Mavs, (remember the 06-07 SEASON).

you are including blair as if he's already good, also the celtics are about to sign a guy called bruce bowen, so i beleive tht ups there bench

4 teams get to 60
1. LAL 67-15 Class of the League
2. Clev 64-18 Great reg season Bron never gets hurt
3. SAS 63-19 Great Improvements, only if they stay healthy
4. Bos 62-20 One of their oldies get hurt otherwise theyd win more.

TheKing23
08-05-2009, 08:24 AM
I see three teams getting past the 60 win mark... Cavs, Lakers, Celtics. Magic will get 55+ and I reckon Spurs and Nuggets could also get 55+.

08-05-2009, 10:44 AM
I think the lakers are the only team in the west I think the spurs could but Pop likes resting his stars periodically. In the east I think the celtics, magic, and cavs will all get to 60.

That's what you come back with? That I included Blair as part of their bench? With the Spurs' big 4 and the six I listed from the bench, there's only two more guys left on the team! I hardly think that qualifies as "including Blair as if he's already good."

The fact of the matter is that the Spurs' bench is much better and deeper than the Celtics. That's no nail in the coffin -- just another reason for me to think the Spurs are more likely to win 60+.


I really don't understand what you're getting at here. If you disagree with my "prediction," make an argument of your own. Right now you're just whining because I happen to think the Spurs will have a better record the the Celtics.

We were comparing each team after their big 4. Wallace is part of that big 4.

Mason is a much better player than House. And I'll take Hill over Tony Allen any day.

Seriously, there's no comparison here.

I would say the Lakers and Cavs will. SA may be able to make it but I would expect them to save Timmy and Manu for the play-offs as best they can, which might stop them from getting to 60 wins. I don't see anyone else out west making it, although there are three or four teams with an outside chance (Dal, Den, Por). In the east I can see one of the Magic and Celtics achieveing 60 wins but which one I'm not sure.

TheMicrowave
08-06-2009, 12:51 PM
This is a good thread and hard one because I can Lakers, Magic, Celtics, Cavs all getting 60 wins this year, maybe even the Spurs and Denver.

I am going to say Denver, Lakers, Magic, Cavs, Boston.
