    i could see this. I could see us sneaking as high as 5th or 6th if everything breaks right for us. or I could see us sliding to 10th if Paul is constantly injured.

    really all hinges on Paul's hammies and if Ayton takes a big step forward.

    4th- 5thth seed.

    I dont think the Clippers are that strong anymore, Paul George continues to struggle in the playoffs.
    Nuggets lost Grant, who was huge for them.
    Houston is slowly fading away, westbrook just doesnt play smart nba basketball.
    Mavs are dependent on an unreliable KP.

    Roster wise, we've improved the deepest while keeping Booker and Ayton.

    I refuse to read anything ESPN or CBS.

    The West is a test! Hopefully our coach will give us an edge in games. I don't see how we cannot improve on our record from last year. But it won't be a huge jump. Hopefully enough to get us in the top 8. That's all that matters. Make the playoffs!

    ESPN just posted their projections, but I don't have ESPN+ to access them. Anyone?

    Is that 8th in the West or 8th overall?

    8th in the west. They do however only have about a 2 game projected difference between 4 and 8.

    Looks like I wasn't entirely off base when I said the Suns would struggle to make the playoffs, even with Paul. Thus far, none of the expert projections has them better than having to participate in the play-in...

    I think that is the Suns "slide" If we ever have a chance to be fourth or fall to eighth, we generally end up falling to eighth. Both in standings and in the draft!
