In my opinion, not this season. If the Lakers could play better together, I'd say they had a chance but it seems their locker room is in too much turmoil to make that happen this year. Maybe next year with a different coach, assuming they don't ship anyone out of there before then. I'd also put the Thunder up there, but after getting rid of Harden they just don't appear to be the same team either. They just don't have that extra "mmph" that they had when Harden was in the game last season. Sure, he seemed to fall apart during the playoffs last year, but it was still silly for them not to do everything they could to keep arguably their best 4th quarter player (discounting Durant). If anything they should have been looking for a more consistent point guard, because as good as Westbrook is at times, that team seems to live and die by his success. The team with the best chance, even though I think it's a very slim chance, is the Pacers. The Pacers just seem to be able to play very well against the Heat (compared to other top teams). They showed glimpses of it in last year's playoffs and they've played pretty well against them this season too. That said, I still look for the Heat to win it all again.
