    Golden State and Cleveland. Just the two best teams. Cleveland will walk to the finals, Golden State will only be challenged by the Spurs. Houston would maybe take 2 games if they played really really well.

    Maybe Spurs and Cleveland if SA can muster up enough energy to get there. They have a tough road. We all knew the West was going to be that way, though.

    This is fundamentally similar to what I not only think is possible, but what I really would like to have happen. A Warriors/Spurs series in the West Finals could be great.

    I'd really love for Golden State to grab a title before they left Oakland.

    I honestly think the Pelicans may give the Warriors a harder time in the first round than the Spurs would in the conference finals. I think the Warriors will only gain momentum while the Spurs may not have the energy left in the tank. And I would love if the Wizards some how pulled off a run to the Finals past Lebron.

    I think the Spurs, at their best, are the best team in the NBA. but...they are old. I'm not sure if they can muster up enough energy to go all the way.

    If the Spurs don't win the west I think it will be Golden State. Atlanta or Cleveland out of the east.

    Chalk in the Eastern Conference's first and second rounds. Cleveland beats Atlanta in the ECF.

    Golden State, Houston, San Antonio, and Memphis advance in the West. San Antonio beats Houston and Golden State beats Memphis. Golden State beats San Antonio.

    Cleveland beats Golden State in the finals.

    I have no clue. Hope for the Cavs but I'd hate to guess.

    That is because they have the easiest route to the finals. I still think whoever makes it out of the West wins.
