After a flurry of off-season moves, some teams in the West look a little weaker than they did in June. Whose playoff run is done?
Which Western Conference team is no longer a contender?

PHX, because people really underestimate how valuable Amare is to that offense and NO hakim warrick can’t replace that.
It’s likely the end of an era, as well as no mans land for both the Suns and Nuggets respectively next season.
I know most will say Phoenix,and Jtaylor makes a very valid point, but I vote Denver. The bottom has just fallen out of that team, you can see the chemistry has gone, pretty much everyone is on the block, it wont be the same team in the playoffs as training camp, its guuna be ugly
There should be an “all of the above” option.
please prove us wrong nash, turk & co..
I say Steve Nash has a career year next year. Now he has a guy in Hedo who can handle the ball in the halfcourt….gives him time to set up from 3, and he don’t need no time to set up from 3. I think Nash is gonna have a great year, probably a career year as far as points go…don’t think thats enough to compete
The Mavericks will be the Mavericks again!! I don’t know if anyone’s noticed but Tyson Chandler is looking like a freak athlete again. Saw the man running up court during these World’s…looked like a deer.
no mention of the Hornets??? good, cuz I think they can turn it around this year….i hope
which one is?
can’t believe I’m saying this, but cosign JTaylor. dude knows what he’s talking about with Amare’s game and how it really helped Phoenix’s offense. No way Suns make the playoffs without STAT in the middle pouring in buckets
PHX, SA, and UTA may have dropped off but LAC, MEM, and OKC are emerging quickly. So they cancel out. The West still has LAL, HOU, DAL, DEN, and POR along with LAC, MEM, OKC, and UTA. The East has, CHI, BOS, MIA, NJ, ORL, and PHI. In my opinion the power is still in the West.
