Thanks for tuning in to another live stream.
I'm back with more of my predictions for this N b a season.
In this video, I am going to be going over the Western Conference and predicting be seating in the Western Conference from 15 all the way up to one.
I'll start in inverse order, something to start with.
The bottom of the Western Conference all be revealing the top seats at the end for a little bit.
Added suspense for you guys, so hope you guys stay with me throughout this video.
Let's just get right into it with the Phoenix Suns.
So Phoenix Suns are going to be at the bottom of the Western Conference.
I have them coming in at number 15.
I have their win loss record at 20 and 62 actually went through.
There is a website called Blanking Out on the Euro.
I think it's N B a playoff predictor or something like that.
We can actually choose who's gonna win each game, and it will keep track of the win loss records for you at the end of the season.
It will tell you what the win loss record is for you.
So I did that and I got the Phoenix Suns at 15.
So they're 20 and 60 to Vegas eyes.
They're over under at 28 a half, so I'm going under.
This was before DeAndre eight and got suspended 25 games, so in theory, they should be winning even less.
But they've also been looking pretty good lately.
They they destroyed the Warriors.
They lost to the Jazz.
I think by one, they lost the Nuggets and over time in Denver and they beat who was that? They They beat the Clippers, which was really impressive, and the son's destroyed the Sacramento Kings.
So they have been a really impressive team so far this year and it's Ah, it's gonna be interesting to see what they do moving forward again.
I had made this prediction before the regular season started.
If I was making it now, I would have the sons with quite a few more wins than 20.
But I'm gonna stick with 20 and 62 for them, so that would put me at the under for the over under.
On Vegas, which is 28 a half winds number 14 the Memphis Grizzlies.
I have them coming in at 24 58.
They just as the over under a 27 and 1/2.
I like what the Grizzlies air building in Memphis, I think.
Drama rand, I've said it before.
I think he's gonna be a really special player for the Memphis Grizzlies and someone who could definitely be an all NB air in the future.
But that's not for a few years from now.
This is his rookie year.
It's gonna be some growing pains with him.
Jaren Jackson Jr I really like what he's going to be able to do moving forward, but it's only a second year.
They're still gonna be some growing pains with him as well.
But usually players from their first year to their second year make a pretty big trump.
I'm expecting a big jump from Jaren Jackson as he continues his N BA growth and development, but in the end, it just isn't gonna be enough.
The Grizzlies don't have enough on that team surrounding drama rant and Jerry Jackson Jr and I like Jonas Valanciunas, their starting center.
I think that he is a nice option tohave but again just not enough around.
Drama Ran and Darrin Jackson Jr Jae Crowder is someone who I think could be a sneaky candidate for a buyout once the once the trade deadline hits and passes.
Assuming the Grizzlies can't trade him, everyone talks about the Grizzlies buying out Andre Iguodala, which definitely makes sense.
And I think will.
Hopefully not Gun would end up happening a Lakers fan.
So I want him to get bought out so he can come to the Lakers.
But Jae Crowder doesn't get talked about enough.
He's someone who I think as the season goes on.
He's gonna start being tired, getting tired of being in Memphis and not going anywhere.
This Grizzlies team isn't going anywhere.
So assuming he doesn't get traded, I think that it's a pretty good likelihood that he ends up getting bought out.
And he'd be a really good player for a lot of different teams that have he doesn't do a ton, Not really.
A ball handler can really create for others, but he can shoot.
You can play defense.
He's tough, he doesn't back down from a challenge and he's someone to keep an eye out for in the buyout market number 13.
I've loved Oklahoma City Thunder.
I have them coming in at 30 and 52.
They're over under, according to Vegas is 31 a half.
So again, I'm going with the under here thunder.
They still have pieces to be a pretty good team and a relevant team, a team that can give playoff teams in the Western Conference problems.
Part of my prediction with this, with them going 30 and 52 is I'm expecting Stephen Adams to be dealt at some point this year.
I'm expecting that Dennis Shrewder will be adult at some point this year to trance Chris Pollens of getting dealt.
I think him going to Miami is definitely a realistic possibility and one that could come to fruition for sure that he'd have the salary, the salaries to match up with Chris Paul salary.
Goran Rocket would have to be involved in that trade, and I talked about Jae Crowder as a possible buyout candidate.
Goran Dragic's If he stays on the heat, he's not a buyout candidate because I have the heat making the playoffs and I'll be getting into the Eastern Conference in my next video.
But If Goran Rog it was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder and part of the package for Chris Paul, then he's on the last year of his deal under aren't going anywhere.
It makes a lot of sense that the Thunder could end up buying him out, and then he'd be free to sign somewhere else.
He's someone that a lot of a lot of teams a lot of championship level teams could use.
I look, I'm a Lakers fans.
I'm a little biased, but he would be a big get for the Lakers as well.
So I'm kind of hoping Chris Paul gets traded to the Heat, But we'll see.
But as far as the Oklahoma City Thunder go this year, yeah, I have them only at 30 wins because I do think Steven Adams get still Dennis Ruder.
I think there's a T least somewhat good likelihood I'll put it at 35 40% that Chris Paul gets dealt before the trade deadline.
Next up by the Sacramento Kings.
At 33 49 Vegas has the over under at 37 yet 37.
5 so under again for the Sacramento Kings.
I'm not that high on the Sacramento Kings, and this was before Marvin Bagley injured.
His thing was his fingers hand.
He's out 4 to 6 weeks.
This was again before the regular season started, but I'm a Lakers fan.
So I know all about Luke Walton and his coaching tendencies and his rotations.
That frustrated me for years where he dressed.
Yes, it's starting unit, and he wants it starting in it to get as much time together as possible.
And then he has his bench unit and he wants his whole bench unit to play together.
Or it takes out pretty much all of his starters.
Maybe you're lucky and he leaves one of his starters in with the bench unit.
But it's pretty frustrating because he is not utilizing all of his players to the best of their abilities.
Starters are starters for a reason.
They're your best players.
You should always have multiple starters on the court.
Don't unless you're like the Clippers and you have an incredible bench and still, I still want one or two starters on the floor at all time.
But yeah, it Luke Walton.
His coaching tendencies are pretty frustrating.
You couple that with the king's talent.
I'm I like deer and Fox.
I'm not as high on him as a lot of other people are.
Some people think that he might even make the All Star team this year.
There's no way he makes all starting this year.
He's not good enough.
And he's also not on a team that is going to be good enough where he gets some well deserved recognition for an All Star team.
So he's gonna put up some good numbers.
I don't think he averages 20 points per game.
I think it's down around 17 17 and 1/2 points per game to go along with six and 1/2 assists per game and a really good defender.
But him, But he healed who I like.
How buddy he'll control the lights out.
People are really high on Buddy healed because he is in the fourth year of his envy, a career so everyone assumes he's young.
He's older than Anthony Davis.
He's either 26 or you might have already turned 27 but nobody heals older than Anthony Davis. That's crazy.
You think of Anthony Davis, you think, OK, you someone who has absolutely solidified himself and he's He's pretty much the player that he is going to be at its peak.
He's at his peak right now, but because Buddy Healed is only in his fourth year, a lot of people look at that and think, Oh, he saw so much untapped potential But he really doesn't.
He's 26 27 years old.
This is good as he's going to be, and he's a very good player.
He's not an All star level player, but he is a really good role player, one of the best role players that you can have.
But in the Western Conference, that's as good as this Western Conference is.
The Aaron Fox buddy healed Harrison Barnes at the three Marvin Bagley at the four.
That's a good amount of talent, but that's not enough to get the job done.
And blanking out on to the King's starting center is right now.
Sorry about that.
But still, regardless, that's just not enough to make a push for the playoffs, especially when you're kind of having to play in in spite of your coach, Luke Walton.
Just because Luke Walton is not a very good coach.
I was really high on him when the Lakersfirst hired him, but he just says so many things that make you scratch your head.
I think the King's we're probably gonna lose a few games this year that they shouldn't.
But they do, because Luke Walton is their head coach.
Next up, coming in at the number 11 spot.
Thank you, Leanne Wall, for sending me the tip.
I'm glad you're enjoying this.
Appreciate the support Number 11 of the Minnesota Timberwolves coming in at 38 44.
Vegas has their over under at 35.
5, someone to take the over on that just slightly.
Most of this is just Karl Anthony Towns, who Karl Anthony Towns was suspended for two games by the way today because of his fight.
If you want, it was a fight.
But according to Charles Barkley, what did he say? It was more of a snuggle party, which I mean, according going off of what Charles Barkley he's done in his MBA career.
Kind of was, but Karl Anthony, towns suspended for two games, Roland be suspended for two games as well.
But still the Timberwolves Karl Anthony, towns is someone who is a difference maker.
He is, in my mind the third best center in the league, behind Nikolay Yokich and Dolan Bean.
Although Nikolay yoga, to start this year out, has not played well, it also him is my M v P.
I know it's really early, but right now it doesn't look like too good of a take.
There's still a lot of time left, and I do think the Nuggets are gonna bounce back again.
I talked about the death and how I think they're just gonna be ableto wear on teams that don't have the type of death that they do over the course of the 82 game regular season.
But Karl Anthony Towns is someone who can lead this Minnesota Timberwolves team to quite a few victories.
Andrew Wiggins is not an ideal player, tohave next to Karl Anthony Towns, but he is someone who is little streaky and he realised way too much on his athleticism to get points.
But when he's on, he can get quite a few points, even if his plus minus is pretty bad.
Outside of that, I like Derek over.
I think that he is gonna be able to contribute right away this year.
I think I had him on my on my second team, all n b A team, and I really liked him at Texas Tech.
I think he's gonna be able to find a place in the Timberwolves rotation as someone who is their best perimeter defender, even though Andrew Wiggins, in all honesty, should be the best perimeter defender.
He has all of the physical attributes and tools needed to be a great perimeter defender.
But he just doesn't care enough.
Jared Culver does, and he will be a good perimeter defender for the Timberwolves.
He is a good ball handler.
He's getting better as a or I should say, he's getting better as a ball handler, and getting better as a playmaker for others is able to create his own shot.
He is underrated athletically.
When he was at the Lakers predraft workout, I believe he set the record for the highest vertical in Lakers predraft workout history at like 45.
5 inches or some ridiculous max vertical, So I'm expecting him to contribute Robert Covington as well.
He does a lot on the defensive end.
He's a prototypical three Indy type player.
So I think the Timberwolves will have enough to get to 38 44.
Next up is one that I know I'm gonna be wrong about this.
This was this is my predictions again before the year started at the Golden State Warriors coming in at 10.
So at least I predicted they're not going to make the playoffs because they are not.
But I had the Warriors going 43 39.
They just had their over under at 47.5.
So it's not like I was crazy to think that they were going to go 43 4 or 43 39.
They're not coming anywhere close to that over under a 47.5.
I have them at 43 39 right now.
If I could redo it now, knowing what I know with Steph Curry being out 6 to 8 weeks and the Warriors as a team just looking as bad as they do, I'd probably put them down around 28 54.
Maybe they get to 30 wins in the 30 and 52.
That honestly might even be a little bit too generous for them.
I mean, they've looked horrible to start this year.
I think they're going to right the ship a little bit.
Then when Steph Curry comes back, they should look better.
But they've looked terrible.
I'm trying not to overreact too much to it, But I think 28 wins, maybe even 26.
That's probably right in their wheelhouse of 28 54 26 56 is probably what they're gonna end up at.
So now they're not even hitting the 43 wins.
If they hit 40 wins, I will be extremely shocked.
And that means once Curry came back, he went absolutely crazy on everyone and lead them to, like 30 victories out of the next 45 or something.
Next up at number nine, I have the New Orleans pelicans.
They just has the over under at 39 a half for them.
I think they're gonna hit that over pretty easily.
I have them coming in at 46 36 again, the number nine seats of just missing the playoffs.
But I think if Zion would have been healthy for the entire year.
I really do think of the Pelicans would have ended up making the playoffs.
Zion Williamson is that special, and when he comes back from his injury, hopefully at some point in mid December, I cannot wait to watch him play basketball, and they have so many good players around him.
They have so much more talent around Zion Williams and than they ever had for Anthony Davis.
You look at their roster right now.
They have another player who could turn into a superstar.
And Brandon Ingram, who is a really good scorer, really good shot maker, not shot maker, but really good scorer for as young as he is and a really good defender and really versatile defender as well.
And then they have J.
Red****, who is one of the best shooters in N B A history.
So he's gonna open up the floorboards.
They have drew Holiday and Lonzo Ball, who or by far they combined to be the best backcourt defensively in the n B.
It's not even close.
I'm really excited for what they can do right now, and once Zion comes back and having said that, though, because I am is missing the 1st 6 weeks.
I just don't think that they have quite enough to make the playoffs.
I have them at 46 36 the Team I AB coming in at eight San Antonio Spurs.
I have them going 47 35.
So just barely eking out the New Orleans Pelicans for that number eight spot.
It's gonna come down to the wire if it's flipped and the pelicans make the playoffs over the Spurs.
A big Spurs fan being a Lakers fan, The Spurs are kind of one of our biggest rivals, and Gregg Popovich heats the Lakers.
So any time he can struggle, and if I could actually witness him, not make the playoffs, that would be nice, even though I do like watching Gregg Popovich coached teams just because of the beautiful ball movement that they always have on offense.
But I'm gonna take the Spurs going 47 35 over under at Vegas is 46 a half, so I have them just barely hitting that over, but a little bit risky of a bed.
If you want to do that.
But yeah, I have the Spurs in at the eight seed 47 35.
DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge.
I think we'll play better over the course of this year than they did last year.
Last year, they needed to get acclimated to playing together.
DeMar DeRozan is a very interesting type of basketball player and that he's not looking to shoot any threes.
LaMarcus Aldridge, Who's the Spurs? Best big man, is a better shooter than their best Garden. DeMar DeRozan.
But I think so. The Spurs finished.
I think it was in the seven spot last year.
They have Deante Murray back to, and I know the Western Conference got a lot better.
But people don't realize how good Deante Murray is.
He is someone who is a candidate for all n b A defense.
He is a really good defender and he's getting better as an offensive player as well.
I'm looking for some big strides out of him this year and I think the Spurs playoff record or a consecutive playoffs made, which is now that I think over 20 is gonna continue at something crazy, I think they just barely make the playoffs this year and continue that street number seven.
I have another Texas team, the Dallas Mavericks, going to be 49 33.
Vegas has the over under for them at 40.
5, so I have them way over on that one.
I love Luke Adan, Kenshin, Kristaps, Porzingis.
The pairing of them.
It's a little too early right now to say that they're going to be championship contenders.
I think they still need 2 to 3 years, maybe 1 to 2 years, to just gel and become better.
Kristaps Porzingis is a little older than Luca, Don Keech, but Dung Kich is the clear cut best player on this Mavericks team.
We've seen the hot star that has gotten off to already this year, and I don't think that that's going to change.
I think you won't continue as gaudy numbers for the rest of the year, but he'll still put up some really good stats.
Kristaps Porzingis and Luca Dung kich, though.
When was it yesterday against the Denver Nuggets? They beat the Nuggets in Denver.
I believe it was Ed was in Denver.
Mavericks beat the Nuggets.
Luca Don Kitchen, Kristaps Porzingis combined for 22 points.
Luca Donkeys had 12.
Kristaps Porzingis had 10 for the Mavericks as a whole.
Had nine players score in double digits.
That is exactly how you beat the Denver Nuggets.
I talked about the Nuggets all the time.
Having so much death.
You need to have depth as well.
And that's exactly what the formula is for success in the regular season in the Western Conference.
So all the Mavericks might not be one of the most skilled teams in the West if they can continue to show that they have a good amount of depth, that's gonna make it a lot easier on Kristaps Porzingis and Luca Don Kage, and it will solidify their place among the top eight teams in the Western Conference again.
I have them at number 7 49 and 33.
Take them on the over for the over under of 40.
Next up, number six Portland Trailblazers.
I have them coming in at 52 30.
The over under for them is 46.5.
So take the over again with them Blazers.
I never wanted out Damian Lillard after what he was able to do last year in the playoffs.
McCollum seems like year after year.
We talked about them, as are they one of the best backcourts in the N B A.
And then it seems like each year in the playoffs they just come up short.
But last year they did not come up short.
They ran into Goliath in the Golden State Warriors, and the Blazers, who were David in this sense, just could not defeat Goliath.
But nobody could defeat the Warriors until the Raptors were able to, because Kevin Durant reentered himself in, ruptured his Achilles and Clay Thompson tore his A C out.
So give the Blazers credit.
Give Damian Lillard credit I.
Also, I think the Hassan Whiteside trade.
Whether traded Meyers, Leonard away, son, whites.
I just doesn't fit too much in today's n b A.
But I do something he's gonna be able to give them.
Rebounding is going to give them Rim protection toe, where Damian Lillard and C.
J McCollum can carry enough of the offensive load.
I also expect that Collins to have a pretty big year this year.
I'm expecting him to take a leap forward.
So for those reasons, I have them at the number six.
Take the over on the 46 a half over under.
Next up the Houston Rockets.
I have them coming in at number five seed, so little lower than some other people would have them.
I have them coming in at 53 29 over under in Vegas is 53 a half, So I have them just under on that on, although I could see it going either way.
But if I have the pick, I'm picking the under the Russell Westbrook James Harden experiment.
I think it'll be decent enough in the regular season.
They're going to get the five seed, which is okay.
It's lower than they have been the past two years, but well, I really think that the Russell Westbrook James Harden pairing they don't fit as well.
It's Chris Paul and James Harden.
Russell Westbrook is a better player right now and he's less injury prone.
So that's the plus on that side of things.
But I think that there will be some games over the course of a two game season.
For the most part, it's gonna be pretty quiet where Harden and Russell Westbrook are getting along pretty well.
But I do think there will be a few instances a few games where they kind of butt heads, and you kind of look at whoever your friend is.
You're watching with your like I don't know about these two By the time the playoffs come around, it's not gonna be fun for Houston and their fans.
But in the regular season, Rockets were gonna do enough to where they're still a 50 win team.
You're gonna finish 53 29.
They again over Under is 53 a half to take the under.
They just beat the Wizards by one.
James Harden had an incredible Gang, scored 59 points, Rockets toward 159 points in regulation.
But they gave up 158 points to the Washington Wizards, who on my stream last night I talked about the Wizards have nobody outside of Bradley Beal.
So defense is a huge concern for me with the Houston Rockets because of one.
The talent that they have, James Harden, doesn't play much defense he's gotten a little bit better over the years.
Russell Westbrook's gotten considerably worse on the defensive end just because he's gotten older and he cannot be as much of just a wild animal as he used to be, just flying around the court and being kind of the Energizer Bunny.
Other than that, I mean they have Clint Capela, who protects the rim, is a rim protector, and P.
Tucker is their only real defensive player.
They don't have too much defense therein to Mike D'Antoni's their head coach, Mike D'Antoni does something he doesn't care about defense.
He just doesn't know how to coach defense.
He's an offensive minded coach, and that's how it usually goes in the n b a r e.
Their defensive minded Chiltern offensive minded coach.
It's rare that you find a coach that can excel in both, and Mike D'Antoni is great offensively, terrible defensively, and his teams usually reflect his coaching philosophy.
So yep, rockets come in at the number five seed number four seed.
I have the Los Angeles Lakers.
I have their record at 55 27 so I'm gonna take the over on the over under a 50 a half in Vegas Lakers.
I think more than anything this year, compared to in the past, when they've been good, I really think they're gonna take care of business against bad teams, whether it be bad names in the West or the East.
I think when they get a chance to take care of bad teams, they will do it.
And like we've seen so far.
Throughout the beginning of this year against the Grizzlies and the Hornets, it was closed for the first half of both games.
In the second half, the Lakers were started to assert their dominance, health permitting.
So knock on wood as long as they stay healthy.
I really do think that it's gonna be the case throughout and then very good enough basketball team to where they can beat any team in the N ba.
On any given night, they arguably have the most talent out of any team in the n B A.
I have said it before.
I'm gonna say it again.
They have the best 12 punch in the n B.
I don't think that you can even debate that that, you know, maybe you could debate that you cannot debate that they're 12 punch fits better When you combine their talent and the way that they fit, they make for the best talent.
Slash fit out of any 12 punch in the n b A.
And that I think is inarguable.
So Lakers 55 27 take the over for the 50 and 1/2.
They get Kyle Kuzma back tomorrow against the Mavericks, so that's another.
Hopefully should be a big piece to their team, and we will see how he plays and how he reintroduces himself to the Lakers.
I have a video out on what he brings to the Lakers as well.
So if you haven't checked that out, go ahead and check that out.
Three big keys for what he does.
Bring number three.
I have the other Los Angeles team, the Los Angeles Clippers, 55 27.
There, over under is 53 a half.
So again, I'm taking the over on that one.
Clippers the Onley way that I could see them maybe having less winds.
It's just it just depends how much they're gonna be resting.
Kawai and Paul George who I already rested last night against the Utah Jazz because they had a back to back and other playing the Spurs tonight.
If they're trying to do the same thing with him, maybe the Clippers do have less winds, but clippers do end up making the playoffs for sure.
I still think Clippers have enough talent to wear, even if they're resting.
If they're resting one of Kawai, Leonard or Paul George on some nights, but they always have the other one in, then they're still good enough to where they can be competitive against anything in the n B A.
And I'm still comfortable taking the 55 wins for them and taking over on the 53 a half.
Next up Number two team in the West Utah Jazz, 56 26.
I know they haven't gotten off to as good of a start as at least.
I expected they would.
Over under in Vegas is 53 a half, so I'm taking the over for them.
And the Jazz are a team that they have death, kind of like the Denver Nuggets, who, by process of elimination, you can guess number one team in the West but Utah Jazz at 56 26.
Donovan Mitchell's the third year for him, so I'm expecting him to take another big step, just like he did in the second year.
Rudy Oh bears a big piece to their puzzle, but them getting Mike Conley Jr in the off season is one of, if not the most underrated.
Moved from the N B.
Mike Conley is a really good point guard.
He has never gone to the All Star Game because he has been in a loaded Western Conference his entire career.
If he was playing in the East when he was coming up in the N b A, he'd be in a least one or two All Star Games.
But he's someone who he's a veteran point guard.
You know exactly what you're going to get out of him.
You're going to get smart decision making playmaking for others, Playmaking for himself is a gritty defender.
He was part of the grit and grind Memphis Grizzlies team that had incredible defense play year after year, and he's gonna bring that same mentality to the Jazz.
I think he's gonna be a big addition.
He got off to a really slow start.
He had the lowest field goal percentage for a player in the team debut in MBA history.
Everyone who the jobs were playing in their first game, but it was ugly.
He finished the game.
I think it was one for 16 or one for 17 from the field, but I think that's more of just a fluke.
And I think over the course of the 82 games is gonna be putting up some pretty good numbers.
And he's gonna help lead the Jazz to the number two seed in the West, along with their other free agent addition.
While my comedy was a trade, but they're big created in addition of Boy on Bogdanovich, someone that's coming over from the Pacers, he's proved himself before in the playoffs.
He's proved himself in the regular season.
He's gonna be able to space the four for the Jazz as well, to allow Donovan Mitchell's from room to operate when he tries to attack the pain.
And then, obviously they have Joe Ingles, who, because he is looks like a non athletic white guy.
You would think how he undressed shoot threes.
He can definitely shoot threes, but he's a really good defender to really underrated defender.
So this whole Jazz team is just kind of a ton of underrated players coming together to bond together and try to win the West.
And at least in the regular season, I do think they're gonna come pretty close and they're going to end up as the number to see Number one seed in the West.
I have the number nuggets.
Like I said, I have them at 60 and 22 tied for the best record in the n B A.
During the regular season.
Vegas has the over under at 52 a half.
I'm gonna hammer the over with with that one, and I hope you guys do is, well, the Nuggets more than any other team.
I feel really confident in the Nuggets having the number one seed in the West just because the West is so competitive this year and they're going to be so many battles night in night, out between different top teams in the West toe, where it's gonna be exhausting for a team like the Lakers, for instance, where they're really top happy with Anthony Davis and LeBron James Koosman coming back should help, and the Lakers are do have a pretty easy schedule to start out the year.
But that means in the middle of the season and towards the end of the season, it's gonna be pretty rough for them.
And they're gonna be games where they just don't have it.
And they're exhausted because Anthony Davis and LeBron James had to do so much to contribute to the Lakers winning again, whereas with Nuggets, they are at least two deep at every position.
Michael Porter Jr.
Who was the 14th overall pick in last year's N B A draft and missed the whole season because of an injury.
He hasn't even gotten a minute this year, and he looked good in the preseason.
He was someone who was a potential number one overall pick going into his freshman year at Missouri, dealt with some injuries and stuff, and he was still thought of.
It's kind of like a mystery player who, when healthy, could be the best player in his raft, the government 14 and they're not even playing him, and that talks more just about just about how much depth the Nuggets have, and also the leeway that Mike Malone, the negative, the Nuggets head coach, has a CZ well to be able to not play him just because Mike Malone.
Besides, he's not good enough to be in the rotation.
Whereas if it was another coach, I'm They use the Lakers and this as an example again with Frank Vogel.
He doesn't have that type of power to really decide who's gonna play and who's not, which I know.
Sounds weird for an MBA head coach, but Lakers signed them to a three year deal.
Coaches always get five year deals.
Jason Kidd is the highest paid assistant coach in the N B A.
Right now, Jason Kidd's already shown that he can be a backstabber, two head coaches, and he's gonna be coming for Mike for Frank Vogel and his job.
And as soon as the Lakers start to struggle, I think Frank Vogel was out.
Jason Kidd's in is the head coach, unfortunately, because I'm not a big fan of Jason Kidd at all, but with the Denver Nuggets and Mike Malone, he has bullet on me with that mean do whatever he thinks is best, and he's a really good coach to.
So Nuggets have a really good coach.
They have the best depth in the n b A, and that is definitely a formula for success in the regular season for the Western Conference.
So I have the Nuggets taking the number one seat will be back on in a few minutes to detail my Eastern Conference standings.
And then after that video, I will give my take on how the playoffs we're gonna shake out as well.

I'll be back on in a few minutes.
