When is the last time the West is this good?

I mean every team in the west can possibly make it to the playoffs except for clippers, warriors, and twolves. No one would've guessed the kings and grizzlies are going to be competitive, heck before the season even started people already started talking john wall to the kings. Besides the Lakers, no team in the west can really afford to have a losing streak.

the west is as deep as ever

the west is as deep as ever for sure, but I wouldn't say this is the best its been. The lakers are the only team looking like title contenders in the west and the rest just look like teams competing for the playoffs. When you have quality depth as well as numerous teams that look like they can win it all, then the conference as whole looks great. Right now, 3 of the top 4 teams are out east.

but i agree its exciting to watch because like you said no one can go on any kind of losing streak. Almost everyone is playoff caliber.

Why can't the Clippers make

Why can't the Clippers make it? If they can stay around .500 until Griffin gets back and he plays like people think he should there is no reason they can't.

Unless Baron Davis thinks he's going to transform into Reggie Miller.

clipps

if blake griffin comes back ever and plays like a rookie of the year, the clipps have a slim chance of sneaking in, I have not counted them out as of now.

The Bynum injury; Gasol trade. Chris Paul and the Hornets broke out, and was that the same year the Rockets had a 22-win streak?

well when you say "has west

well when you say "has west been better" i think you have to take both depth and title contenders into consideration. This year has depth, but lacks title contenders. So i wouldn't say this is the best the west has been.

i dont see it. ya'll seem to

i dont see it. ya'll seem to think blake will come back and just be superman. the guy has missed all of training camp. camby has played in 32 games gordan only missed a couple. the kings will get back martin who will do more then blake and once again blake is a rookie. 15-8 is the most i see him averaging and thats near playoff time when he gets into game shape. i know ya'll like the clippers but ypu have to be realistic

lakers
spurs
denver
utah
houston
portland
okc
phx
dallas
new orleans
memphis

the clippers arent better then any pof those teams even with a rookie who has missed half the season and all of training camp
