The Los Angeles Lakers are at a league best 8-0 start, while their “rivals” the Miami Heat are 5-3.   Many people believed the Heat would win 70+ games, but as of right now the Lakers are likely headed in that direction.  However, that kind of optimism is not flowing on the Lakers’ bench.  Coach Phil Jackson believes the Heat can win 70+ games, not the Lakers.
