NBA Western Conference Rankings 2018-2019 Season

Check out my Eastern Conference Rankings if you missed it.

Lottery bound

15 - Sacramento Kings



The Kings are slowly getting some young assets to build a fun team with guys like Marvin Bagley, Buddy Hield, Willie Cauley-Stein and DeAaron Fox. Also add in a guy like Zach Randolph, and there should be some entertaining games. This conference is too loaded for a team with some prospects to gain any relevance.

This Knicks team will be led by Enes Kanter and Tim Hardaway Jr. God help us.

Clyde, the smartest basketball mind of all-time, had this to say: “The reality is without KP, man, we’re going nowhere. Without Porzingis, he’s our future. The worst thing th…
