The Baseline: 2018-19 Pacific Division Preview

Our third division preview takes out all the way out west to the Pacific Division. We enlist the expertise of Jabari Davis to help break down the division of the NBA champions and the league’s king. On this week’s show:

Phoenix Suns

  • How much will Devin Booker‘s injury cripple a team that desperately needs his star power?
  • T.J. Warren and Josh Jackson will battle for minutes but will one rise as the necessary starting option?
  • Will DeAndre Ayton get the opportunity afforded to most number one picks or will veteran play impact his rookie season?

Sacramento Kings

L.A. Lakers

L.A. Clippers

  • With a clear departure from ‘Lob City’ the team looks to build on a scrappy group centered around Tobias Harris and Lou Williams.
  • Who will emerge from the crowded point guard situation between Patrick Beverly, Milos Teodosic and others.
  • Can the team stay healthy enough to challenge for a playoff spot in the west?

Golden State Warriors

  • It’s more of the same from the defending champs who now have DeMarcus Cousins?
  • Will the dubs get bored and slip up during the playoffs?
  • Which bench players take a step up and earn minutes in order to give the starters rest during the regular season?
