As far as I'm concerned, SA is still the team to beat in the West, until someone proves otherwise, and their team is better than last year, having picked up Damon Stoudamire along the way to backup Parker.
I never said they were runaway #1, just #1 right now. SA is gellin' doing their thing, Lakers are 9-1 in the last 10 and Bynum isn't even playing.
