Before the season I thought the Lakers had a shot at 30 wins. Doesn't sound like much but its a lot better than the past few seasons. For a while I thought maybe that was out of reach. But this modest stretch winning 6 of 8 puts them on track for 30 wins.

They have 36 games left. If they go 13-23 they'll be at 30 wins. Its doable. Baby steps. Gotta get a little better each year. Win 30 this year and maybe .500 is attainable next year. Modest goals, but they've been pretty bad for a few years now. Gotta start somewhere.

12-4 over over the last 16. Nice rebound from that bad stretch. Looking more and more like my 30 win goal is reachable. I believe most of that stretch is without Lonzo Ball. I hope they didn't make a mistake drafting him. So far he doesn't look like the future star he was made out to be. I suppose he's just maybe too young to put that kind of pressure on him. At least I hope so. Kuzma's looking like a steal. Ingram is looking like a future star too. His game is well rounded. And he's only 20 years old.

17-7 over the last 24 games. 28 wins with 20 to play. I think 30 wins is pretty much a done deal. Heck, they could get to the upper 30's the way they're playing. They're still not playing the defense they need to win consistently but they've won some close games late. That's a step in the right direction. They came from double digits behind to beat the Spurs last night.

I'm not sure they can, but if they can lure Lebron and Paul George, I could see them being an instant playoff team. Probably not a championship team but at least back in the playoffs with a mid seed. If not, maybe a couple seasoned vet starters could propel them into the top 8. They just need to keep playing and learn what it takes to win games.

Magic learned some things from Doc Buss and West. Riley too. I get the sense that they're very interested getting guys like elBJ, & George.

It sure would be nice to see some competitive ball again.
