Breaking down the teams and divisions of the Western Conference in the NBA for 2014 - 2015
Are the San Antonio Spurs still the team to beat?
Are the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder ready to take the next step?
Who will make the playoffs?
Will the Lakers rebound from a disappointing 2013 - 2014?
Which teams improved, which teams got worse?
Yesterday I talked more about the Eastern Conference and who I thought would make the 2014-15 NBA playoffs. To me, there is a three-tier system, with Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto at the top, Indiana, Washington and Charlotte in the middle, then the rest of the East will be... well, irrelevant. Today, I'll go over the West, which also has a three-team tier at the top, with the rest of the teams looking up at them. The Dallas Mavericks are the team to look for when it comes to sneaking into that upper-echilon of teams.
For the first time in what seems like forever, I'll be going over the NBA world when it comes to the 2014-15 season. Who should the top eight teams be in the Eastern and Western Conferences be, come playoff time? Is Cleveland just one of the top four or so teams in the East? Or with LeBron James and the shooters he will essentially bring with him, should they be the favorites? As far as the West is concerned, are there any new teams that could sneak up on the likes of San Antonio, Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Clippers?
Tonight on Sports Talk with Bryan Nolen, we recap what an entertaining race at Eldora where Bubba Wallace Jr took the victory on the dirt! What were my thoughts on the race? Tune in and find out! We will also finish looking at the Western Conference teams and my thoughts on what they did in free agency! Top headlines and more as we are LIVE on a Wednesday night edition of Sports Talk with Bryan Nolen

Kevin Durant is a player in the NBA seen by most as the second best player in the league. Many believe LeBron James is the best, myself included. So when an elite player goes down for a title contender in Oklahoma City, does that mean their chances of winning are over? Durant's right foot injury will sideline him about two months to start the season. With him not being in a uniform until potentially January, do the Thunder have to worry about not only winning a title, but making the playoffs in the loaded Western Conference?
