With a loss tonight, one of these men could be out of a job.

The San Diego Chargers have reached a point in their season where the team is either going to rally or pack the season in.

The Western Conference isn’t as cut and dry as the Eastern Conference. Dwight Howard may have put the Los Angeles Lakers in the driver’s seat, but there are some believing they aren’t the best team in their own arena. The Los Angeles Clippers have reloaded with wily veterans and an abundance of young hungry legs. And, lest we forget, the Oklahoma City Thunder are the reigning champions of the West.

The Mavericks, Spurs, Grizzlies, Nuggets and Warriors are improved and ready to challenge the upper echelon.
