If the Lakers make the playoffs, which looks more and more likely, Jerry West has an idea of how they'd do.
"I definitely wouldn't want to play them, I know that," West said on a conference call with reporters Thursday. "I think they'd have a chance against anyone."
West, a Hall of Fame player for the Lakers and now an executive with Golden State, said there were certain teams the Lakers (36-33) wouldn't want to play. Oklahoma City and San Antonio weren't mentioned.
"I think if the Lakers would have their preference, they probably wouldn't want to play Denver. I don't think anyone would want to play them," West said. "Denver has proven they can win on the road and they just don't lose at home."
