-7 titles for Kobe (only Robert Horry and a few of Russell's Celtics would match)
And then consider these factors...
-Bynum's gotta be healthy in the postseason ONE of these years, right?
-Kobe, Pau, Odom, & Bynum are signed through 2013
-Kobe played most of this year with a jacked up knee and a jacked up finger.
-Most players are much better in the triangle in their 2nd year. (Artest)
-We have a chance to upgrade our backcourt with the MLE.
I'm looking way ahead right now, but it COULD happen.
Pete, you need to start believing in the idea of fate & destiny. We are going to win 3, there is NO question. Look at the above said reasons and then look at the rest of the NBA, we knew it two years ago, there is no team currently built that can stop us. None, whatsoever.
Now...as far as 2012 goes...Im no Nostradamus, I need to see how the NBA is reshaped this offseason by all the big names and look at players contracts and other s**t before I make that statement...however...
We are lookin primed to be Championship Contenders until 2013...and damn it feels good
