1. MEM
2. SAS
3. LAC
4. OKC

Don't think LAL can make it to #5 seed so cross out MEM.

They definitely dont wna match up with the Thunders.

Spurs might just be their best bet. If Pau can return by playoff time, Dwight/Pau can cause alot of problems for the Spurs thin frontline. No one can guard Parker but i like Dwight protecting the paint.

Spurs. They are the least athletic team out of these three.

Honestly does it really matter. They are getting swept..5 games at most. I hope they do play the Spurs/Thunder in the first round just to wear them down a little.

Lakers can beat the Spurs and can even be considered the favorites if they win Game 1.

OKC runs too much for the Lakers' poor transition defense, but they also play hero ball, which Lakers defense can figure out eventually. Last years' playoffs, Lakers choked 2 games against OKC. It could have easily gone on to 6 or 7 games.

Clippers... Lakers will just have 7 home games.

I like how you choosing opponents as the potential 8th seed.

Won't be happening in the playoffs when ticket prices rise dramatically. Clipper fans are from the poorer section of town.

The Spurs.

OKC and the Clippers can run up and down on the Lakers in a series.

1. Spurs-least athletic team out of the three and Bryant historically owns them.

2. Clippers-Athletic, but games slow down in the playoffs plus Lakers will have 7 home games.

3. OKC-Just a bad matchup

I would prefer SA or MEM. I don't wanna see OKC so early on in the playoffs, I think we can hang with them but I prefer it to be the WCF. The Clippers do play fast but the game should slow down in the playoffs and some of their guys won't be so consistent for them in the playoffs. Also it would be nice to be at Staples for the whole 1st round when one of the downsides to being a lower seed is losing HCA. The Lakers will basically be the home team for all 7 games.
