2012-13 NBA Division Preview: Pacific Division

It would be a shock to most basketball fans if the Los Angeles Lakers didn’t take home the Pacific Division crown this season. But just because there likely won’t be much intrigue outside of the Lakers and Clippers as far as actual standings are concerned, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of Pacific Division storylines to follow this season.

Will the new-look Lakers, led by Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard live up to expectations? Are the Clippers a championship team or just a really good team?

Will Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry be in the lineup enough to help the Warriors fight for a playoff spot? How will the Suns’ season pan out in the post Steve Nash era?

Division Standings Predictions

1. Los Angeles Lakers (60-22)
2. Los Angeles Clippers (54-28)
3. Golden State Warriors (42-40)
4. Phoenix Suns (34-48)
5. Sacramento Kings (21-61)
