September is upon us, which means training camps are right around the corner and we can stop our sobbing. With the return of the best regular season in professional sports, we’re ready for the ups and downs and a world full of eventful experiences.
On NBA Power Rankings, we’ve been chronicling the projections of each position, and even diving into how each conference will project, from 1-15. The Eastern Conference took a major boost in total wins, mainly because of a king’s return to his castle.
In the Western Conference, we’re headed for yet another record season.
Last year, all West units combined for 674 victories, a mark we haven’t seen matched. Based on our projections, that number will be replicated this coming season, except all teams will shuffle around and either increase or decrease their win totals.
How will the toughest conference in professional sports stack up in the 2014-15 season? Who will be your eight playoff teams? Who will take homecourt advantage (seeds 1-4)?
Let’s find out.
