Remember When Metta World Peace Said The Lakers Could Go 73-9

Lakers are now 8-10, so the drama of them breaking the Bulls 72-10 record is now over after 18 games, but in case you forgot the quote from the artist formerly named Ron Artest.

“We definitely want to beat the Bulls record and go 73-9, that’s definitely something that I want to do. Whoever is out there at the beginning of the season then we gotta get it. It’s as simple as that. We just have to go get it. (Host: So that Bulls record is something you’re thinking about?) No question. You try to snatch records before you leave this earth. You gotta try to do a lot of great things so it’s definitely a goal. With Dwight Howard, (Steve) Nash, Kobe (Bryant), myself, Pau (Gasol) and then (Antawn) Jamison and a lot of great additions it’s something that’s possible.”

If they Lakers go on a 65 game winning streak they can still tie the Bulls, so don’t give up hope yet Lakers Fan.
