    I agree. Even if we were 4th/5th switching places with LAC, I would understand it.

    Fair enough. We look amazing on paper, with a very talented and deep roster. We could be the best team in the league this year with a little luck (cough, cough....health).

    Pretty fair. Personally I think us and LAC deserve to be above CLE. LAC definately has improved depth at the bench and I could see someone putting them above us

    I think we are better than Cleveland.

    It's fair. I could even see us being #5 or #6 depending on what you expect from the Thunder and the Clippers. I think we have a big shot this year but in my rankings we are #5.

    I hear you. I let CLE slide after realizing they were, figuratively, on the fast track to the Finals with a beat up Kyrie and without KLove.

    I think if Cleveland was in the west, they wouldn't be ranked 3rd.

    NAturally, I think we are at 2 behind GS (if not 1), but it's a fair spot to be put by an outside looking in perspective

    False. Lebron won more games against GS in one series than we did all year. And he did it with a D-League team. Make no mistake, this team will dominate the east this year.

    7 of the top 8 teams are in the West. Why do we even have an eastern conference?

    Last season pretty much all rankings had us barely making the playoffs in 7th or 8th place and yet we made it to the WCF, does this mean we will win it all this year?? :p:p:p:p:cool::cool::cool::cool::grin::grin::grin::grin:

    Seems a little high on the Lakers if you ask me.

    I think the Rockets passed the Spurs when they added Lawson IMO. I'd rank them #2 behind the champions GS.

    Looks fair. I think us, LAC, and OKC are pretty interchangeable right now. Health will play a huge part into how the top 5 in the West shakes out.

    The Rockets could be ranked anywhere between 4-6.

    I still think they could be the second best team in the West.
