    Has the Western Conference ever been this deep before?

    The elite: MEM, HOU, GSW, POR, SA, DAL, LAC, OKC(once KD/RW return)
    The highly improved teams: PHX, SAC, NO, MIN, UTAH

    The only teams that don't look promising this season are DEN and LAL

    My thoughts are that this thread comes up every year multiple times. That's how good the conference has been.

    And almost every one of those teams can easily knock off the best team in the East. The West is basically a league of their own at this point.

    I thought houston was gonna miss the playoffs, think they still might. the only good team they've beaten is miami. this sa team is sans duncan and ginobili. lal, phil, utah and bost are the bottom feeders. they are better than i anticipated, guys have stepped up bigtime for them. but i don't judge anything off 6 games.

    If you had the best 16 teams in the league in the playoffs I don't think we would have half the NBA champions we have in the past few years

    I disagree. I think a healthy Bulls and cavs (once they figure it out) can beat any west team in a series.

    I'm sticking to my preseason prediction of Houston making the wcf vs the clippers.

    And this is why the NBA needs to change up their conferences just how the NFL and MLB has it done with the NFC/AFC and NL/AL

    uh, yeah. Through the entire last 14 years.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    No. The western conference is in a golden age. It's terrifyingly deep.
