    The way i would rank the 2008-09 West

    1. Lakers - are only going to get better. there young, and they now have bynum and signed josh powell 2 replace turiaf.

    2. Spurs - yes they are getting older but, last year if they had 2more wins they would b 1st, duncan didnt play 10, ginobili missed 7, parker missed 13. so expect them to b the same.

    3. Hornets - are only going to b better. there young, chris paul is going to be better, plus they signed posey.

    4. Rockets - if healthy, they could rank as high as 2. they do have a history of injuries which is y i would rank them #4.

    5. Jazz - same squad but deron and boozer will b better. pretty sure they'll have the same rank as last year, 5.

    6. Mavs - this was a tough 1, but at the ending of the season, they won over 7games in a row, which proved the kidd in big D was working. in the playoffs, expect them to be out in the 1st round, but during the season, it will be competitive.

    7. Blazers - powerhouse line-up. with healthy greg oden & rookie pg Bayless, they can b a huge threat. with a line-up of greg, aldrige, outlaw, roy & bayless, u noe they'll make the playoffs.

    8. Suns - shaq was sent to suns to help them beat spurs, suns nearly got swept. suns were better when they had shawn marion. shaq is going to b worse, grant hill will be too. and dont b surprised is steve nash's numbers drop as well, but they will make the playoffs, but wont go any furthur.

    9. Nuggets - lost camby, lost najera, lost playoff spot.

    10. Clippers - davis + camby is worse than maggette + brand. they wont make the playoffs.

    11. Warriors - young team but the only thing they really did was replace baron w/ maggete & williams. not such a force.

    12. Kings - will have upsets during the season, but wont b that competitive.

    13. T'Wolves - west is not were these guys want to b. they 2 can pull of upsets with there front-court of Al Jefferson & Kevin Love.

    14. Grizzles - bright bright future. almost a powerhouse line-up of youngsters. pg: conley/lowrey. sg:mayo sf: gay pf:needed c: marc

    15. OKC - not much changed, westbrooke wont b that great. keviin durrant is the only good part of this team. maybe will get the worst record in NBA history.
