    None of those teams listed are better, I put the clippers head to head with us though for now. Denver is also a great team.

    Oh yeah you're right, I'll make a quick change .

    Yeah, there are so many potential 50-win teams someone will miss the Playoffs by a game or two, couldn't even get to Utah before I already filled 8 out off the top of my head.

    Completely overlooked that roster for some reason, you could make a case for 10 teams out West for the Playoffs, maybe 11 if you're a homer of one of the weaker teams.. Dallas and OKC could easily be in the Playoffs as well. 3-8 is a very tough call and some of these teams aren't done with their off-season moves yet.

    It's ridiculous to say that the Lakers are 8th at best though, they have the two best players out West and both are 100% healthy right now, along with a 3rd option who should take another step forward to becoming an all-star.
