Blazers Join The 40-20 Club

According to this article, Phil Jackson believes a team should achieve 40 wins before losing 20 to be considered a contender, of which the Blazers have accomplished when they beat the Nets.

"Mention the phrase "40 before 20" to Phil Jackson, and you can almost sense his mind flashing back to greatness. The Los Angeles Lakers' coach believes that elite teams win 40 games before they lose 20, a mark achieved by the Lakers in all three of their championships earlier this decade and by the Chicago Bulls in all six of their championships with Jackson as coach in the 1990s according to the Los Angeles Times."

The recent Lakers champion teams, the Mavericks championship team, the Heat, and the Spurs have all reached this status and made it into the Finals.

Not anything mind-blowing but it's just nice to know we're in good company.
