Lets look at the best teams in the West:
Spurs- Regular season juggernaut. Early playoff exits 3 years running.
Thunder- Definitely lost a step after trading Harden
Clippers- Have been nothing special at all lately. Not enough to beat Miami
Nuggets- No superstar player to take over.
Memphis- Only team in the west that matches up well with Miami. But they aint making the Finals.
Lakers- Might not even make the playoffs. Don't play any defense at all.
Like I said, its a cupcake conference. There is a reason why Miami plays the west better than the east.
