I can't believe that so many fans here are fakers' believer. So many fans think Lakers will be #1 in west. Please check the history. Kobe is the biggest faker. I don't care what MJ said about him. Kobe's far away from MJ. The closest player to MJ now is Wade who won a Championship himself. I think Heats will make a lots noise if wade keeps healthy. Kobe disappeared when it counted and don't make teammates better. That's not MJ but exactly a MJ faker. Kobe is not a team player and still the uncoachable player he used to be. Phil Jackson for sure is a good coach but he got too much credit from his superstar players. He won't win his 10th ring . He can't be this lucky. Let's see what fakers did last season. They lost their most important regular seaon game. They were defeated by Rockets who got 22 wins in a row and lost their first position to Rockets. The faker kobe was blocked twice by S.B. at the end of the game. They were lucky over Spurs due to Manu's injure. They were flatted out by Celtics in the final. There were no match at all. They were not a team, no triangle at all but individual player made isolated play. They really didn't have high BB IQ and it's especially a truth for Kobe. Please, Even hawks went 7 games with Celtics. Let's remember what's happened the Western conference Champions in recent years. Spurs are the odd team. They won in the odd years. The other teams, fakers twice, Dallas once won over Spurs by luck in the even years. All the three team was humiliated by the eastern teams in NBA final. The first two became big disappointment the next year. These fakers will be no different. They will not be in western conference final. I think spurs will make their last noise in western. Jazz and Hornets will improve. That's the teams that Rockets need to overcome. fakers may win a bunch of regular seaon games, but they will have no business of WCF. Basically fakers lack the kind of leadership that other four teams possess. Rockets will eat fakers alive. fakers can abuse other teams with their two big man mismatch, but not Rockets. Rockets match them very well. Rockets provide every other team mismatch. I think only Jazz and Raptors may give Rockets mismatch because they have a great pg and two big man who can shoot outside. So let's put Rockets #1 with 65+ win until some season-end injures happened.
