2010-2011 NBA Preview - Pacific Division

Los Angeles Lakers
Duh. Final Prediction: 60-22

Golden State Warriors
Would I have had them second in the division before the season started? If I said yes, would you believe me? Steph Curry (when healthy) and Monta Ellis make up the #1 must-see backcourt in the league (except for maybe Wall-Gil). Ellis is playing like an MVP right now, he's much more in tune with the flow of the game and I don't see any reason for that to change. Final Prediction: 44-38

Phoenix Suns
They really miss Amar'e. Hakim Warrick has been nice, but let's be real for a minute. Unless Hedo can play like he's back in Orlando, this team is gonna struggle. Final Prediction: 41-41

Sacramento Kings
They're really not that much better than last year. DeMarcus Cousins is cool, and really they have a bunch of talented guys up and down the roster (Francisco Garcia, Omri Casspi - who's a bigger chucker than 'Reke is, Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Sam Dalembert, Donte Greene)... I'm just still a little on the fence about Tyreke Evans. And they still don't play defense. Final Prediction: 36-46

Los Angeles Clippers
Baron Davis will torpedo this team. There's no way around it. I'm a big Boom Dizzle fan but this team goes nowhere with him running the show. I'm not saying Eric Bledsoe is the answer... though he might be. Eric Gordon is a beast, by the way. And Blake Griffin is a MANIMAL. But B-Diddy... Final Prediction: 35-47
