As of 29 Oct 2008, the Los Angeles Lakers are 2-0 after their blowouts of the Portland Trail Blazers and rival Los Angeles Clippers.  Here are my predicted season series for the Lakers to finish the league’s best record with 68 wins and 14 losses.

Conference
39-13 vs. Western Conference teams
29-1 vs. Eastern Conference teams

Divisions
15-3 vs. Northwest Division teams
11-5 vs. Pacific Division teams
13-5 vs. Southwest Division teams
10-0 vs. Atlantic Division teams
9-1 vs. Central Division teams
10-0 vs. Southeast Division teams

Opponents
2-0 vs. Atlanta Hawks
2-0 vs. Boston Celtics
2-0 vs. Charlotte Bobcats
2-0 vs. Chicago Bulls
2-0 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
2-1 vs. Dallas Mavericks
3-1 vs. Denver Nuggets
1-1 vs. Detroit Pistons
2-2 vs. Golden State Warriors
3-1 vs. Houston Rockets
2-0 vs. Indiana Pacers
4-0 vs. Los Angeles Clippers
4-0 vs. Memphis Grizzlies
2-0 vs. Miami Heat
2-0 vs. Milwaukee Bucks
4-0 vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
2-0 vs. New Jersey Nets
2-2 vs. New Orleans Hornets
2-0 vs. New York Knicks
3-0 vs. Oklahoma City Thunder
2-0 vs. Orlando Magic
2-0 vs. Philadelphia 76ers
2-2 vs. Phoenix Suns
3-1 vs. Portland Trail Blazers
4-0 vs. Sacramento Kings
1-2 vs. San Antonio Spurs
2-0 vs. Toronto Raptors
2-1 vs. Utah Jazz
2-0 vs. Washington Wizards

Because of the 2 home games considering its home-court advantage, the Spurs would be the only team to win the season series against the projected league-best Lakers.  The Detroit Pistons would be the only East team to defeat the Lakers at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

To all Lakers fans: Enjoy our Lakers season!  Go Lakers for its 15th NBA championship!

Happy Halloween!
