    I still think it will be LA and OKC in the Western Conference Finals. If Martin is healthy, there's still a strong chance OKC comes out of the West.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    i dont think okc is a top team no more. they have no big three . HARDEN WAS THE GUY THAT KEPT DURANT IN THE GAME WHEN WESTBROOK WENT INTO TUNNEL VISION MODE. WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOW .

    I SAY THE LAKERS OR THE CLIPPERS WILL TAKE IT

    I actually think this will end up helping the Thunder

    Look at their starting lineup

    Westbrook
    Seph/ Martin
    Durant
    Ibaka
    Perks

    Bench of
    Maynor
    Lamb/Seph/Martin
    Perry Jones III
    Nick Collison
    Thabeet

    That's actually some legit depth, plus the 1st rounders in the future.

    Kevin Martin might not be able to run the offense like Harden, but hopefully Maynor can step in that role, and Kevin can just provide some efficient scoring as well as Lamb and Perry Jones III providing some depth.. I like the trade for them

    On paper its a dog fight between Clippers,Lakers and OKC. I got to see the first 10 games to pass that judgement. Its silly to think they are no longer a contender. After Lakers traded for Howard and Nash OKC were no longer the favored team anyway. Its documented Lakers out the West with Miami out the East with Miami winning gold.

    I had this year as OKC being favored.

    With Harden swapped for Martin, I think the West is wide open.

    I think it's a toss up between OKC and the Spurs with an advantage over the Lakers simply due to it being their first year together.

    I think the Clippers aren't ready yet, but can't be discounted as a dark horse. I have mixed feeling about the Nuggets. They're good, but my gut tells me they don't have enough to get it done this year in the playoffs.

    Next year, it will definitely be OKC and the Lakers with the Clippers possibly in the mix. Hard to say who'll have the advantage until I see the Lakers play some actual games. I just can't see the Spurs being competitive past this year... father time is hard to fight.

    i don't think harden being gone will hurt that bad. Martin will do great things for OKC. Lakers are still the only team that should be ahead.

    I added the poll exactly as requested.

    I am gonna go with OKC still. I don't see a major jump from Bynum to Howard for LA.
    Nash is a weaker defender than Sessions so that could hurt.

    I really don't think the Thunder will fall off that much at all... Kevin Martin is a very good player...

    why arent the rockets an option??????

    jk

    people are acting like the thunder got nothing in this trade. i think they did very well. clearly they no longer have the upside of harden (23), but kevin martin is a more than capable of filling hardens role. im sure he's salivating at the thought of just needing to score off the bench. he will thrive in this role. mark my words. kevin martin can average 20 off the bench. hes a smart player. he gets to the line and makes teams pay...

    Thanks for posting it

    Love him or hate him, call him overrated, a punk, chump, and whatever blasphemy you people speak, fact of the matter is there is no denying he's the best of his generation and will go down as a top 5 player ever...what he has done for the NBA is amazing he's the biggest name in basketball all around the world and his chase for number 6 continues! All that matters though to us Laker fans is #17! Lakersnation! #16to17

    Ignore List:
    AIMelo=KillaDUO; Reason: Makes up stories to protect the one he beats his meat to everynight(Melo)
    Chucky Woods; Reason: Packer Homer that just talks outta his Azz
    HaruSoul; Reason: Sanchez homer can't see that he is a POS qb
    Hustlenomics; Reason: Good luck debating with this Ronda homer
    nickdymez; Reason: Kobe/Laker homer but didn't even know how the Lakers got Kobe

    Lakers will win the west easily, they will be very good together by the time the playoffs start.
