NBA opening week is upon us and in honor, we put together an Western Conference Watchability (excitement) ranking

It’s opening week of our favorite season of the year: NBA season. What we as NBA fans look forward to each night of the week are marquee matchups. And you know what it takes to have a marquee matchup? Exciting teams. Earlier this week, I provided a list ranking Eastern Conference teams based on my level of excitement for them – in what could also be called “Watchability Rankings.”

This time around, I’m ranking the Western Conference. This ranking will not take into account how successful I project each team to be, but rather who’ll intrigue me enough to warrant tuning into a game.

You can find our Eastern Conference Watchability Rankings here. Let’s get on with our Western Conference.
