Man, tough tough tough is how one describes this division. There was a seismic shake when Chris Paul up and left for the humidity of Houston. How will he fit in with ball dominant James Harden? Can they coexist? Houston, an Harden, won many fans last year I felt. He took his game to another stratosphere. In Texas the perennial battle between Kidd Vicious Dallas and Ron San Antonio rages on. Dirk, now the NBA elder statesman, continues to defy age with his craftiness. Today sources indicate that he will spend time at centre in his 20th season. The Spurs, now very much Kawai's team always feature in the playoffs and will aim to go one better and extract revenge on the champion Warriors. Tony Allen has taken his talents to division rivals the Pelicans feat nufan and Son of Skeletor . But at least the Pellies re-signed Dante Cunningham, which is good right? Who's gonna come out trumps from the south west?
