    So...basically any of the top 6 teams in the West have a decent shot at winning at all (maybe less so NO and Utah). And then you have two very talented upset-minded teams in Denver and GS. Dear lord.

    Eh...I just think that experience plays a huge part when it comes to the playoffs and I'm not convinced Utah and NO have that necessary experience. I'd love to be proved wrong.

    See: NBA Playoffs 2006-2007.
    Utah has proven themselves, and I think Sloan is good enough to make up the difference. Plus, any team with Korver has a legit shot at a championship.

    OK regarding NO, but Utah was in the WCF last year so I don't see your point with the Jazz.

    I don't think Utah has the interior defense to do anything in the playoffs. Boozer and Okur are soft and softer.

    You think that one year of experience is enough? Some of these other teams have been going at it for years. Like I said, I'm more than willing to be proved wrong.

    Western Conference playoffs this year could go down as the best playoffs in NBA history. I can hardly wait.

    The league certainly is open this year. There are about half a dozen legit title contenders.
