    Can all of SouthWest make the playoffs?

    It's looking as if Portland, Clippers, Warriors, and SA, Memphis, Houston, Dallas, and Pelicans are the playoff contenders in the West. Has this ever happened before where one division is taking over?

    IMO, they are the eighth best team in the West. You can argue Phoenix but if AD can play the way we expect (2nd best NBA player?), they have an argument.

    Lebron and Durant are far and away the best two players in the world. Davis is very good and has the potential to be one of the best but he won't overtake durant IMO

    after this year, the conversation's going to be Lebron, Durant, AND Davis. calling it right now.

    Durant is my favorite non Pelican, but lets be real, he is an offensive juggernaut, but his defense... is average, maybe slightly above average, nothing ground breaking.

    I am also not saying AD is better than him or anything. But as far as best two way players go, it is a lot closer than it seems.
    Seattle Seahawks- New Orleans Pelicans- Atlanta Braves- Anaheim Ducks

    the only team I am not convinced 100% is a playoff team is Portland, and even they are good.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    You're convinced by New Orleans?

    On paper, yes. With Davis you've got a chance every night. You aren't I assume?

    Not with the depth in the West. I like Davis, Jrue, Anderson. Just don't think there's enough pieces there or enough depth to make the post season in the west.

    I mean to be an 8th seed in the western conference you need to be playing nearly .600 ball never mind .500


    I'm convinced by Portland more than New Orleans.
