I know it's early in the season but is the northwest division taking over as the hardest division in basketball cuz its always been the southwest division...

Thunder favourites in the west,Blazers potential top 4 seed Nuggets in the same boat. It's all dependant on the Wolves taking that next step which i think they will.

I think it is the best division now, but the SW is close.

edit: wow i just checked standings and Denver is 3rd in the division at 5-2 haha

Either way you wanna look at it. The West is still the superior conference in the league and has been for a long long time now.

Yea the west always has 2-4 teams that have better records than some teams in the east that make the playoffs

The Northwest Division looks beast, and interestingly enough all small to mid market teams.

Yeah, it's a good division. Oklahoma City and Portland are among the top teams in the West. Denver and Utah are good as well. Minnesota's a team on the rise. Good to see such competition in that division.

Its a solid division but Utah is a long way from respectability and even though the Wolves are more exciting, they're still the Wolves. I still say Southwest.....

It's still early in the season. The Northwest division looks good right now, however I think the SW is still the best in the NBA.

I'll say this, the Atlantic division is probably the easiest.

edit nvm, just checked the the central is piss poor too. It's a 2 seed, 7 seed, and 3 high lotto teams
