We’re back again with the latest volley in the ever-popular Blogger Previews. Today we tackle the Northwest Division of the Western Conference, featuring some of the youngest teams in the NBA. Last season the division was won by the old-school, new-look Jazz led by Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer doing their best John Stockton and Karl Malone impersonations. The Denver Nuggets also made the playoffs out West behind the trio of Carmelo Anthony, Marcus Camby and Allen Iverson in one of the strongest seasons of his career – the loss of Camby figures to make the feat tough to repeat though.

That should make room for the young guns in Portland, a roster led by Brandon Roy and “rookie” Greg Oden and as laden with young talent as any team in the NBA. The Minnesota Timberwolves and Oklahoma City Thunder figure to pull up the rear once again, but even these rosters feature exciting youngsters like Al Jefferson, Kevin Durant, Rany Foye, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook.

It should be another fun season to watch in the Northwest, and the bloggers below have all you need to know to prep for the season ahead.
