The West will look like this: LA Lakers San Antonio Phoenix Utah New Orleans Dallas Houston Golden state First Round matchups will be like this: LA Lakers (1) vs. Golden State (8) Since Pau has arrived in LaLa land, the Lakers look to be the team to be beat in the rugged Western Conference notwithstanding the pending return of Andrew Bynum, the Lakers look invincible. The Warriors will give them fits in defense, but ultimately, the Lakers poise and depth will get the best out of BD and Stephen Jax. the Lakers can match the Warriors speed but the Warriors can't match the Lakers height. Pau Gasol and a healthy Andrew Bynum will have a great series against the small Warriors. Lakers will take this series 4-1. San Antonio (2) vs. Houston (7) Even though the Rockets are on a roll right now, winning 12 straight, this will not be the year that Tracy McGrady will come out of the first round. They cannot beat a battle tested Spurs team with Tony Parker back and Manu Ginobili hitting those threes. It will be a competitive series but the biggest factor here is playoff experience, which the Rockets are in need of and the Spurs have an abundance of. And besides, Yao Ming is out for the season, so McGrady will have to wait again next year to try and win a playoff series. Spurs take it in 6 games. Phoenix (3) vs. Dallas (6) Best friends Nashty and Diggler wll again meet in the postseason but with different circumstances. Both have made major acquisitions with Jason Kidd and Shaquille O'Neal. Both teams need to redeem themselves for them to be recognized. Kidd will help in the leadership and heart department. O'Neal gives Amare a mentor and someone to push him too. Too close to call. it all boils down on who wants in the most.....

lol....it took your 8) as a smiley.... DOH!

Hey Randy, with the "breaking" news of Yao's injury, do you still think that they will keep the 7th spot in the West?

What about Kurt Thomas...he can guard either Amare or Shaq and so can Duncan...

I wrote this before I even knew about Yao's injury. The last three spots are really a toss up now between Golden State, Denver and Houston.

im not so sure about that. Now Stoudamire AND Shaq can guard Duncan. As much as I hate Shaq, he still is dominant when you look at his size. It would be a hard one and it would be taken to a game 7, but I think the Suns can win it.

Me too. Remember, they have changed the dynamic of their team now by adding Grant Hill and Shaq, two veterans who are playoff tested. I think they can win it too.
