Nuggets, Blazers and Jazz are the thoroughbreds that from October, when the season's gates open, will have to prove themselves to be racing in the Wild West. Denver after having .being surprised last year must succeed in the most arduous challenge ever: Murray and Jokic are the cornerstones of a young team, very deep and strong enough to become the queen of the division. Portland, after winning the conference finals last year, is tired of being undervalued. Damian Lillard is the superstar who loves to amaze and who will have around a more structured supporting cast, with Bazemore's additions alongside his trusted Robin, CJ McCollum, of Pau Gasol and Hassan Whiteside, the bet. Utah arrives at the end of summer as one of the most reinforced formations: Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic bring experience, points and features to respond to the fierce competition. Behind them, two good teams on paper but lost in limbo: Minnesota has to take off the label of eternal unfinished, starting with the Andrew Wiggins-Karl Anthony Towns, while the Thunder will come to terms with a new era, after the Westbrook farewells and Paul George. All waiting to know how and where to place Chris Paul and Danilo Gallinari in the current season, to officially start restructuring ... points and features to respond to fierce competition.

If you ask Portland fans who their team’s biggest rival is undoubtedly the most popular answer will be the Los Angeles Lakers. The Blazers have faced the hated Lakers eleven times in the Playoffs and the two teams have been involved in many memorable series, games and moments. It is fitting then that the NBA has chosen Moda Center as the venue for LeBron’s Laker debut, against a Portland team under pressure after last season’s Playoff failure.
