This is interesting from Wikipedia:
The planet Venus forms a pentagram in the night sky every eight years with it returning to its original point every 40 years with a 40 day regression (some scholars believe that this ancient information was the basis for the #40 becoming sacred to Jews, Christians, and Muslims).
Oden will get 40 fouls in the first 8 games and Outlaw will shoot 40% on 40 jumpers from 40 cm outside the 3 point line (some want to trade him for the 40th pick.)
