With two NBA MVP awards and the consensus around the league as being the best point guard in the NBA over the past decade or so, Steve Nash has shown that point guard can dominated in this league once again and has inspired the young point guards of today to do the same.
There are only four teams left standing in the NBA playoffs and all four of these teams have their eyes set solely on the NBA finals and an NBA title.
The defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers are favored to come out on top, but the Suns have that run and gun offense and arguably one of the best point guards in the league in Steve Nash.
In the first round of the playoffs, both the San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns came into their series with a boat load of confidence and their sights set on advancing to the next round.
The Phoenix Suns and the Portland Trail Blazers are two teams in the Western Conference that always seem to get into playoff contention. This season is no different as both the Blazers and the Suns are back in the playoffs square off in a first-round battle.
Unlike the Eastern Conference, all eight teams in the Western Conference playoffs are legit and can compete with the best of the best in the NBA.
One of the most disappointing realities in professional sports today is the possibility of injuries heading into the postseason. No matter what teams do to avoid or prevent injuries, it is just something that happens and it’s inevitable and many cases.
The Thunder will make their first playoff appearance in its young existence. Oklahoma City is currently the sixth seed in the west but are locked in a three-way battle with the Portland Trail Blazers and San Antonio Spurs.
With only a few weeks left in the NBA regular, the best teams in the league are gearing up for the playoffs and this year it should be as entertaining as ever as we will see some great matchups, especially in the Western Conferences!
Coming into this NBA season the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers look like they had a hell of a chance of competing for another NBA title in a repeat campaign.
The NBA regular season is almost in the books and we are only months away from arguably the most talented free agent market the league has ever seen.
