The top 3 West teams are from the NW Division?


According to the daily updated Jeff Sagarin ratings over at USATODAY.COM, the top three teams from the Western Conference are all in the Northwest division.

According to the rankings, Oklahoma City is #4 overall, behind Chicago, Miami and Philly of the East. The Atlanta Hawks are 5th, Denver is 6th, Portland is 7th. Utah, of the NW division is 12th overall, and 7th in the West. Minnesota is 17th overall, and 11th in the West.

The East may have 4 of the 5 at the top, but they also have the 7 worst teams: Boston, New Jersey, New York, Toronto, Detroit, Charlotte, and Washington.

Is it safe to say the NW division is the strongest in the West, and the NBA?
