When, if ever, do you think the Lakers will finally be .500 with wins/losses?

The hole is too big at this point for it to be realistic.

they would need a 7-10 game win streak somewhere and I think that is too daunting

They can average 4-3 each 7 game stretch, it will take 49 more games to reach .500.

look at you being all mathy. That still seems undoable but not outrageous.

Would be shocked if they end above .500 as currently constructed considering the rigors of an 82 game season.

If they don’t have to play Nunn, Christie, Jones/Bryant or Ryan very much because of good health, I think 35-40 wins is about right for the season with this roster.

Assuming no trades and AD / LBJ are out for 10+ games each (i.e. play under 70 games for season each) which is relatively likely based on recent evidence, I am thinking more like around 31-33 wins.

Either way, unless they start showing that they can string 4-5 wins in a row pretty soon while still in the early part of the season, they might be lottery bound before they even reach the trade deadline…

Hopefully next season the Lakers will be 1-1 after two games....

Without a roster upgrade via a trade the Lakers aren't likely to reach .500 anytime this season. They would have to play 7 games over .500 to reach that mark, even with LBJ/AD/WB all healthy they lost many more games than they won.

Is 0-0 considered .500? If so, then at start of next year. If not, then idk. Maybe 2030ish?

If things continue at this pace, league-wide, then .500 will be the minimal in to make the play-in. In essence, Lakers are already fighting for their post-season lives.
