NBA west is wide open

For the last few years, right before the regular season starts, Jon Hays and I usually paste in our guesses for the top 8 in the west in chat. This year the west is up for grabs more than anytime in the last handful of years, so I thought I’d share my list:

  1. Rockets
  2. Clippers
  3. Spurs
  4. Blazers
  5. Nuggets
  6. Lakers
  7. Jazz
  8. Warriors

No doubt a few things are wrong here. For example, Dallas looks like a playoff team right now, and I left them out. But I’m excited to see how this shakes out, especially for the Spurs, who are exactly the team I was hoping they’d be now that Dejounte Murray is back.
