The Mavs had the number one offense in the league last season by far, so their offense doesn't need much improvement but it will most likely only get better, and since they are a young growing team you can expect their defense to get better also. That said, if they stay healthy they are definitely a contender in the west. Plus they have a much better head coach than the Clippers and from what I've seen there are more teams in the west that are better than the Clippers. Denver and Utah are the first that come to mind, but don't forget about Portland and Houston. You never know when Dame or Harden can go off and score 50+.

If the Clippers had a true point guard with leadership abilities then there would be no discussion about Kawhi Leonard's leadership. He can only do so much and he simply isn't made to be a team's leader like that.

Serge ibaka is a role player and Luke kennard is pretty good 18 5 and 5 type of guy. But the mavs were a historically good offensive team who just majorly improved in defense. I say they at least make the conference finals

the Mavericks have someone that will retaliate next year. Teams will not be able to thug the Mav.s when theyre outscoring them now. Thats a game changer.

Everyone keep sleeping on utah. From playoffs last year they upgraded their roster to add in bogdanovic (a 50 40 90 shooter off 20 ppg) and derick favors (around the 15th best center in the game maybe being generous) however. They say without Gobert on the floor they are go down 6.2 points. Adding in this player does what gobert does for the bench mob. Jazz should have easily mopped the nuggets last year. STOP SLEEPING ESPN. You won't even talk about Mitchell's 36 ppg off of 50 50 90 splits. Jazz will tuck you guys in pretty soon

Biggest threats are: - Mavs if healthy - Nuggets if Murray plays like he played during the playoffs - Clippers if PG plays like he played during the playoffs. - Golden State / Utah In that order. I'm tired of people saying how good the clippers are. They couldn't even beat the nuggets. Tired of those excuses about meltdowns, covid and that lebron had time to rest, like dude, there was covid for everyone, there was resting for everyone, not just the clippers, and the fact they lost against the nuggets blowing up the 3-1 lead shows they're not mentally tough nor prepared. Stop making excuses for this. When Miami lost against Dallas in 2011 while being favorites everyone laughed at it.

Lakers would destroy Mavs with a sweep... Nuggets & Clippers are the only threat to Lakers. But even those teams would either be eliminated in 5 or 6 games. The other team everyone is sleeping on in the West is Blazers.
