If the Western Conference is the best conference in the NBA, then the Midwest Division is now arguably the top division in the league.

With a new and improved World Champion Spurs, Dallas' Big 3 and Minnesota's newly acquired Big 5, you can argue that three of the best five teams in the NBA all reside in the Midwest.

Throw in the Rockets and two teams on the upswing -- Denver and Memphis, and things are going to be tougher than ever out in the country's heartland this year.
