So, recognizing that there will still be some final roster moves before the end of the off-season, how do you rank the West as of today? If you need to check out the off-season moves of Western Conference teams, click the link below. Just a quick observation: the West is one tough MF-er. http://www.nba.com/2017-western-conference-player-movement Here's my take: 1. Warriors (Duh) 2. Rockets (A lot depends on how their back court works, obviously, but Chris Paul is still and amazing player). 3. Spurs (Getting old and Gay isn't the answer to whatever they were missing, but Leonard is still getting better) 4. OKC (Screw the Thunder and Paul George. I hope this is a one year disaster for the Thunder). 5. Blazers (Screw the ESPN computers. Nurk is just that damned good.) 6. T'Wolves (Butler is going to be good for them and Teague is an upgrade over Rubio.) 7. Nuggets (Milsap? Man, can't they keep any good players in the East?) 8. Pelicans (We're going to find out if two really good bigs can work in the NBA.) 9. Jazz 10. Grizzlies 11. Clippers (Basically a whole new team.) 12. Mavericks 13. Kings 14. Suns 15. Lakers (Just because the Lakers should always be last.) Edit: Oops. Came back to this after doing some other stuff and posted it without filling out all 15 teams.
