The Western Conference may be up for grabs, but the competition is deeper than ever. The Rockets, Blazers, Clippers, and Lakers are just some of the teams competing for the top this season.
Among them are the Denver Nuggets, one of the league’s biggest surprises last season. After losing in the second round to the Portland Trail Blazers, they are coming back this year hungry for redemption.
But it will take more than a strong spirit to win the West, and the Nuggs may have to make a power move if they want to really be taken seriously.
According to Matt Burke of Metro USA, one such move may involve Washington’s Bradley Beal.
