Woj using deductive reasoning, as there arenít many stars left to even send West.

Sucks to look at it like that, but anythings possible.

No one in the shitty east has a chance.

But matchups are everything. In my opinion, Spurs and Memphis have the greatest chance to beat Golden State in a 7 game series out west


This season? Memphis, no. They're done.

I could see The Spurs doing it, but its going to take a monster effort from everyone. It's tough to beat the Warriors 4 times in 7 games.

Can't really see it happening unless they are out of the playoff picture come deadline, but at that point, it'll be too late to put together a tank for a good chance at Ayton/Bagley/Doncic/Porter.

Jazz better be. Their roster is a mess. Favors has to be available for sure

Spurs will take those two and have them looking like phenoms.

Why is it not smart? They've talked like Hood will get at least 15-18 million a year maybe more. He's a 6th man at best and he's soft.

Burks needs to go to a team that will let him play his game. Same with Neto. They aren't appreciated here.

Who's really left the WC that's worth naming? I'm drawing blanks right now. I guess you can say that Bledsoe got himself to Milwaukee, but he's not really a star player.

Hayward?

Just because the Warriors steamrolled over the conference doesn't mean that their competition is inferior to the Eastern Conference; it's more attributable to the fact that the Warriors top-heavily outclass the rest of the teams—and to an even greater extent against the Eastern Conference.

You can analogize it to transposing the Olympics team into the Western Conference: they would trounce over all times including the Warriors (the hypothetically second-best team int he league), but it wouldn't mean that the Warriors are a cakewalk; it'd simply mean that the hypothetical Olympics team would be head-and-shoulders above the competition—as the Warriors have been for the past-few years. It speaks more magnitudinously about the Warriors than it does about their competition in the end.

It's speciously results-oriented logic to use, and it's not the enthymeme that objective Eastern Conference-detractors are using to claim the east is weak, themselves; it's more so the fact that there's only been one veritable title-contender in the conference for at least several years, which the west has consistently housed more of.

Moreover, some of the Warriors' supposedly vapid competition can be chalked up to their seeding more than anything else, as that is one of the biggest advantages of the number-one seed: it roadmaps top-bottom match-ups early on so that you face your conference's playoffs fodder before title-contenders. Warriors still have consistently had a title-contender awaiting them in the conference finals, and they had to jockey for their finals appearance, accordingly—last season being the only anomaly, simply because the injury-ravaged Spurs were down two starters (including their MVP candidate).

If the Wizards got Marc Gasol they would be a contender.
Will the Griz be under .500 by the trade deadline, tho?

Blazers need to make an offer for PG. Aminu + first rounder for a 1 year rental.
