This was one of the comments in a hoopsworld article so take it with a grain of salt if you could.
UPDATE:More Credible Source,
Oops, we may have neglected to mention the league is rearranging divisions this year... next year the jump to five divisions begins and Portland and LA will definitely be matched up together...
So Should Portland move into the Pacific Divison, because geographically speaking the Divisions are pretty messed up.?
Here's what the NW Division currently looks like.
Picture is from a RealGM Post by Spyke so im not taking any credit for it.
The teams are all over the place so how would you guys re-arrange it? Keep us in the NW or move into the Pacific where we would have to face the L*kers 4 times, and the Warriors who seem to always play good against us, but then aggain their are the clippers and kings.
