The 2010 NBA Preview Extravaganza continues with a look at the West’s Pacific Division.

Last year, the Clippers Lakers made the City of Angels proud once again, making their third straight appearance in the NBA Finals and taking home the Larry O’Brien trophy for the second consecutive season. Meanwhile, the Suns nipped at their heels all season long, finishing just 3 games back in the regular-season standings, but now look to an Amare Stoudemire-less future. Good thing or bad thing? We’ll see.

The Kings scored the Rookie of the Year in Tyreke Evans, a bull who embraces the moment, performs at a high level under pressure, and has the look of a perennial All-Star. Nellie’s fun-and-lose Warriors bowed out with 26 wins, but added Stephen Curry, who lost out to Evans in ROY voting but has risen into the upper echelon of fantasy hoops and could be even better than Evans. Keith Smart takes over head-coaching duties this year. And, finally, the Clippers were the Clippers, though looking on the bright side their .353 winning percentage was their best since 2006-07. Progress!
