In ranked order
Nuggets
Suns
Mavs

Suns and Mavs could go either way but Im not liking their future at all

Them and the Lakers are most likely primed to enter their peak years as a unit in the coming years, so yes I agree with that assessment, MORON would be a better description IMO

If you take out the Nuggets it becomes more interesting.

they dont have a solid center and a true point guard so for me they will fall to number 12 in the western division.

The Nuggets & possibly the Mavericks too if they end up trading Josh Howard around the trade deadline.

i would have to go to the sun> their team are built to run run run they lost marion and he was a import piece of the suns game they got oneal who cant run or shoot ft> the suns rigth now will be learning to play defence how can they be good at it when nash cant gaurd anyone not to mention amare he a good post defender but he get school by duncan kg boozer any good pf can school him one on one oneal isnt feared that much he above avegare but that he the have 2 defender on the team oneal and barbosa they can play zone all season they wont get any where


the Mav everyone is saying they wont make the playoff that just ppl that dont watch the game and c wat the issue was last season they had no offence let me rephase that they had about 10 plays Rick will open up the floor and still have them playing defence

I think Denver won't make it as well. Maybe Portland if the mesh together will take their spot.

Denver more likely but the suns aren't locks. Whoever voted for the jazz and lakers must just hate those teams

Denver, a defensively challenged team that lost their best defensive player.

I'm going with Denver. I just can't see the teams chemistry holding up down the stretch, I think a team like the Blazers or Warriors will replace them.

Nene has still 4 years left in his contract. They can only use the MLE (~5.6m) on J.R. Smith because they still do not have his Bird Rights, and they are still over the cap.

They traded Camby just to get below the LT threshold. What a cheap owner.
