The NBA is rarely a simple league to play in and there are all the time a series of very intense challenges that greet every team each season.

But some years seem harder than others.

While last 12 months was no walk within the park for many teams, the upcoming 2022-23 season looks to be much more cutthroat and difficult because of the return of several star players and a few notable changes to the league.

The Western Conference goes to be especially tricky this 12 months and a few teams which have legitimate superstars is not going to find a way to make the cut.

NBA analyst Trevor Lane summed things up perfectly:

“The NBA Western Conference playoff race last season was that test where your teacher gives you points for putting your name at the highest. This 12 months, health willing, it’s going to be 100 questions, all short answer. Incredibly essential to not let winnable games slip away.”

Lane isn’t mistaken – the West is about to get hot.

So, who’s least prone to make it into the playoffs?

 

Best In The West

It was wild to see LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers not even make the play-in tournament last season.

Nonetheless, don’t be surprised if we see that again in the brand new 12 months since the West goes to be even harder.

There are many reasons for that but the largest is the return of Kawhi Leonard to the Los Angeles Clippers.

His emergence, together with a healthy Paul George and John Wall coming to LA, makes that team all of the more powerful.

Meanwhile, Damian Lillard is back up north in Portland and the Memphis Grizzlies at the moment are huge competitors too.

Oh, and don’t forget that Zion Williamson is back with the Recent Orleans Pelicans.

Yes, the Western Conference goes to be a battle royale this 12 months.

Irrespective of who you might be rooting for, you have got to confess you’re looking forward to the fireworks.
