can we win 75 - 80 games.........
if shaq returns to 2000 form(which he is trying to do i hope)
if kobe comes out clean and improves his game(which he WILL)
if malone gets 15-17 pts a game without loosing team chemistry
if payton has a career year in assists and steals (which he can)
if our young players step up on both sides of the ball(which they will)
if we stay healthy
and last but not least
if shaq and kobe share the league mvp title!!!
