Ranking the West - Hoops World

There have been some changes made in the Western Conference this summer, and there will likely be some more before it's all said done. Here's a look at the way the conference shapes up today with the rosters as currently constituted.

1. Los Angeles Lakers
2. San Antonio Spurs

3. New Orleans Hornets - The Hornets needed some added punch off their bench and arguably overpaid to get James Posey. That's not to say Posey won't help, but now there's a lot of pressure on him to deliver the likes of which he didn't experience in Boston. In New Orleans, the Hornets are counting on him to be their version of Robert Horry. Ultimately, though, the Hornets will go as far as Chris Paul takes them. If Tyson Chandler and Peja Stojakovic play at an All-Star level, too, the Hornets will have the ability to knock off anyone come playoff time.

4. Utah Jazz
5. Houston Rockets
6. Dallas Mavericks
7. Phoenix Suns
8. Denver Nuggets
9. Portland Trail Blazers
10. Los Angeles Clippers
11. Golden State Warriors
12. Sacramento Kings
13. Memphis Grizzlies
14. Minnesota Timberwolves
15. Oklahoma City TBA's

Did they forget about David West?

He's at least as good as TC and Peja
