The top three seeds in the Western Conference are not feared by the lower seeded team with superstars on them, says NBA insider Brian Windhorst.
According to him, neither the Nuggets, Grizzlies or Kings are viewed as serious threats at this point of the season.
“Durant, LeBron, Curry and the rest of those Warriors they smell something, they smell weakness in the Western Conference,” Windhorst said on Get Up. “Don’t confuse all the stuff together for strength. It is a weak conference.
“Now, I’m saying that here in March. If we get to May and Jokic and the Nuggets and Ja and the Grizzlies are standing there in the conference finals, they can give the middle finger to all those teams that feel that way.
“But right now those teams smell weakness. And Durant’s coming back, LeBron’s coming back. LeBron’s coming back on the bad foot because he smells weakness.”
