Well, well, well. What a strange season this should prove to be. The Spurs were the class of the regular season, but got gutted in the playoffs. The Mavs were unstoppable, but they lost Chandler and Berea, while gaining Odom. The Thunder are who we thought they were, a team on the rise, but are they the team to beat yet? The L*kers? Bah. They still have Kobe and Pau though. Those are good players.
Dark horses? Certainly the Blazers, Grizz, and Clippers can't be fully counted out. What about the rest of the Blazers' division? Are Denver and Utah too far into rebuilding mode to concentrate on winning games?
Call your shot, and even rank the west, with win seeds and win totals, if you dare.
