There are still moves to be made, but as of right now, we have a pretty clear picture of what each team will look like, as well as which teams will contend for supremacy in a competitive Western Conference.

The Los Angeles Lakers, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs have to be considered the favorites to land the top spot, but there are a number of teams who have rosters talented enough to challenge the favorites.

In a gritty 82-game season, nothing is guaranteed; but if things can click for the squads out West, they’ll be ready to keep their season going when the playoffs arrive in April next year.
