ISH consensus: they move up one spot in the conference

They'll be more dangerous in the playoffs. It's a long season. They'll battle injuries, and they still have to gel together.

Nuggets are a nice team but they are a 5-6 seed... Iggy is great on defense, but Afflalo and Harrington were two of their main offensive pieces in clutch situations. Nuggets get a lot better on defense, but on offense they falter a bit.

Our offense will be fine. We have a ton of scoring options.

Damn this is hard. I mean for me, the Lakers are the clear cut #1 and the Thunder #2. After that... damn. I mean I actually love the moves Dallas made and the Iggy trade for Denver. The Clippers are even more stacked this year. The Spurs are still the Spurs. The Grizzlies are still scary. I actually think Utah regresses a little bit. The Wolves and the Warriors could both be really good if healthy. Hell the Suns could surprise some people too.

Actually pretty crazy to think that one two of those teams I just listed will miss the playoffs.

I'd have to go:
1. LA Lakers
2. OKC Thunder
3. Denver Nuggets
4. LA Clippers
5. Dallas Mavs
6. SA Spurs
7. Memphis Grizzlies
8. Minnesota Timberwolves
---
9. GS Warriors
10. Utah Jazz

But really after OKC, anything else wouldn't surprise me. To me it's 4 groups:
Lakers/Thunder
Nuggets/Mavs/Clippers
Spurs/ Grizzlies/ Wolves
JAzz/ Warriors/ Suns

LOL.... Or it's just ridiculous that Iggy takes them from a 6 seed to a 2 seed when every other contender in the west got a lot stronger. No logic whatsoever, but go ahead and take it personal!

I am applying logic

look, I'm not as high as you are, obviously, on the clippers additions...odom is washed up..he can't even get around anybody anymore...they made a mistake letting kenyon and evans go...grant hill is 40...I really like bledsoe and crawford though..but they're front court rotation leaves much to be desired in my opinion

I'm looking at a nuggets team that was MUCH better after the trade for mcgee..so he'll be starting at the C getting the majority of minutes with mozgov backing him up...faried will be better in his second season and has anthony randolph as his back up...gallo will be good and brewer backing him up..they trade for a star in iggy, and lawson could be a superstar

didn't even mention andre miller..yes, I think they'll be the 2 seed..could be wrong, but it's a prediction bro

I think the Lakers will win the west come playoff time, but they usually don't try that hard during the regular season.

I feel like Pop will rest the starters a lot which will cost them some games during the regular season.
