the east is pretty top heavy, theres miami, indiana, throw in brooklyn if you want as well(the vets will help a lot in my opinion) then the rest is pretty ordinary/horrible (knicks are a notch below miami/indiana btw)

I'm waiting how healthy rose is and how he looks to say anything about chicago

Really interested in seeing how Houston plays also. Harden/Howard should be a pretty sick combination. They are probably the hardest team to predict. I can see them losing in the first or even sneaking to the WCF.

I was real disappointed when the Clips signed Jamison, though for the minimum he isn't a bad pickup. Was hoping they would have found a way to get someone like Zaza Pachulia or Samuel Dalembert to round out the roster, but it is what it is. Rivers seems to be real high on Jordan's defensive ability and Blake has continued to be a work horse, so I can see him taking another huge leap. His defense is also criminally underrated. While he isn't great, dude isn't Kevin Love either.

The Clips though, can come out of the West. Match-ups are key, and the worst for us has always been the Grizzlies due to two bigs that can take over at any time, and with them doing nothing but getting older, and me not being a fan of some of their moves (Wroten Jr away for Calathes?) but most importantly a rookie coach makes me worry less. Spurs are another side but they are older. I like how we match up with the Thunder and Warriors as well.

People really don't see how big of an upgrade Redick and Dudley will be. Jared is a solid defender and will be more consistent than Butler was. Redick over Willie Green starting the majority of the year, then an ancient Billups? Yes please. Losing Bledsoe hurts D on the bench, but the offense that has been added on is tremendous. Not to mention, an actual competent head coach to boot.

I like your take on the Clips.

I think your biggest threat will come from Golden State, Houston and of course the Spurs. Thunder and Grizz have regressed if anything.

But it just seems like they are missing a few things.

fck the clippers. Lakers run LA

The west is very wide open..they certainly have as good a chance as anybody but they need to buy into doc's defensive system.

No it isn't. Griffin is one of the best forwards in the game when healthly. Dudley is very good player.spreads the floor really well.

I know what you mean, you guys don't stay out of contention for long though.

My only concern for Lakers future is who's running the show. The coach and owner give me no confidence in their immediate future.

If you haven't noticed Jerry Buss passed away. It's not going to be the same. Get over it. At least you can catch the Clippers.

Thunder and Grizzlies look like the competitive Western teams that have regressed the most.

Houston does worry me as well, but I think they'll need one season to get everything together chemistry wise.

Golden State did have our number last year, but come a 7 game series, I don't see how to place them above Memphis nor San Antonio.
