Who's going to take the Top Playoff Seed in the Western Conference this year? Will SAS rise to first place, only to fall flat in the postseason again? Will the Paul-Blake Experiment go all Hulk-a-mania so that LAC nabs the top spot? Will the Odom-less Lakers have enough length to do some damage? Will Dirk and DAL be as effective without their defensive juggernaut (J.J. Barea is now on the TWolves)? Or will the youth and depth of OKC garner the Thunder a trip to the NBA Finals?

Calling all prognosticators, predictors, and prophets-- in the comments below, put down the order in which you think the Western Conference teams will stand at the end of the regular season. Show everyone on the BrightSide your dazzling display of keen basketball acumen (or your dizzying display of drunken dart-throwing, whichever is appropriate). Your rankings will be kept until season's end, at which time the winner of the BrightSideoftheSun's Best Seer of the Season contest will be crowned as the Psycho Psychic.

Da' Rules: For each playoff team you rank in the correct slot, you will receive 10 points. For each playoff team that you have ONE slot below their actual position, you will receive 8 points. For each playoff team that you have ONE slot above their actual position, you will receive 7 points. For each playoff team that you have TWO slots below their actual position, you will receive 5 points. For each playoff team that you have TWO slots above their actual position, you will receive 4 points. For each playoff team that you have THREE slots below their actual position, you will receive 2 points. For each playoff team that you have THREE slots above their actual position, you will receive 1 point.

If you select all eight playoff teams correctly, you will receive a 6 point bonus. For each non-playoff team you rank in the correct slot, you will receive 2 points. If you rank every team in its proper slot, you will have 100 points.

The winner will get a Nostradamus-autographed crystal ball and the world-wide acclaim and adoration of BrightSiders everywhere!

Here are the 15 Western Conference teams (in alphabetical order):

1. DAL 2. DEN 3. GSW 4. HOU 5. LAC 6. LAL 7. MEM 8. MIN 9. NOH 10. OKC 11. PHX 12. POR 13. SAC 14.SAS 15. UTA

Cut and Paste and create your Western Conference final regular season standing!
