Western Standings

With all the talk of draft picks, wins, and standings I'm wondering about how everyone sees the west falling out this coming season. Yes this so premature, as we all know that injuries and trades are going to happen, but just so far, after the draft, and the decimation that occurred to both Golden State, the Clipps, & arguably Dallas in drafting Kidd last season(who's doing so good defenses aren't even guarding him in the Olympics), I'm curious to see how everyone thinks the West will be won.

Here's the recap from last year with my movement observations/thoughts to the right.

 

Fakers 57-25     [Steady if they don't fall apart from failed Finals appearance + healthy Bynum.]

New Orleans 56-26 [Steady, add further experience]

San Antonio 56-26 [It's on odd numbered year for the Finals so look out, but they are getting old]

Utah 54-28 [Steady? Oly experience for D. Will]

Houston 55-27 [Moving up, or blowing up with our favorite on court brawler]

Phoenix 55-27 [I say up because they actually made a draft pick, then down because of an aging Shaq and no D'Antoni]

Dallas 51-31 [Down, Kidd etc.]

Denver 50-32 [Down, no Camby = less D, aging/tired Karl]

Golden State 48-34 [Down, but still dangerous?]

Portland 41-41[Up, more experience, Oden, more high energy draft picks]

Sacramento 38-44 [Steady? Fresh youth, Salmons starting, Jackson as 7th man, could we possibly leapfrog over GS, Portland, Dallas, Denver? That's my biggest question, I'm not sure]

LA Clippers 23-59 [? Up for Barron, Down for key losses, and honestly it's the Clipps, so 20-25 wins right?]

Minnesota 22-60 [Up three to five games right? I dunno]

Seattle 20-62 [If there's any justice in the world they will win 0 games at home in OKC. But unless you're the Knicks, or a tanking Miami, it's pretty hard to get worse than 20 wins.
