From the Beach to the Desert: The Pacific Division Tides Are Shifting

For years, the Pacific Division, and the Western Conference, ran through the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have a won 24 division titles with next closest teams (Suns and Warriors) only totaling seven each. The Golden State Warriors are the latest Pacific Division powerhouse with an unforgettable run of form from 2014-19 that featured play never before seen in the NBA from stars like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant. Injuries and the departure of Kevin Durant put a brief pause on the Warriors' dominance in the last two seasons, but they are rounding back into form in 2022 to try to keep the Suns from repeating as Pacific Division champions.

Pacific Division Up For Grabs

The Pacific appears to be a two team race in 2022 with the Suns and the Warriors battling it out up top, keeping within a few games of each other. The Lakers have struggled to keep pace in the divisional picture, but still look to be a playoff team in the West nonetheless. Both frontrunners depend on a blend between young talent and established veteran play with the goal of striking the perfect balance for a long postseason run. Don't miss a moment of this year's Pacific Division title race as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson try to reclaim Golden State's throne by knocking off Devin Booker and Chris Paul's Suns. 

Take a look at the latest Pacific Division odds and place your bet on the team that you think will make it to the top.

Pacific Division History

The Pacific Division boasts one of the most prestigious histories in the NBA. In addition to winning the second most championships of any division in the league, it has also seen some of the most dominant dynasties in the NBA. From the 'Showtime' Lakers to the Shaq and Kobe Era and the rise of Golden State's 'Dub Nation', there's been no shortage of excellence in the Pacific. The division also features the intercity rivalry between the Lakers and the Clippers. While it has historically been one-sided in favor of the Lakers, the Clippers have started to level the playing field in recent years. Today, though, the Phoenix Suns are on a mission to repeat as Pacific Division champions and supplant the Lakers and Warriors as best of the West.

Warriors logoGolden State Warriors

Perhaps surprising to some, the Golden State Warriors are among the NBA franchise leaders in championships won. The Warriors are tied for third with the Chicago Bulls with six NBA titles, trailing only the Celtics and Lakers. Three of those championships came from the electrifying dynasty built around Stephen Curry in the late 2010s. Curry-led teams hold NBA records for the most wins in a regular season and most total wins in a season (including the playoffs). The resurgence, success, and marketability of the Warriors over the past decade has made them one of the most lucrative franchises in sports history, currently valued at $4.7 billion. That makes them the sixth most valuable sports franchise in the entire world, just ahead of the Lakers. The Warriors are looking to get back on track in 2022 after two previously disappointing campaigns that saw them miss the playoffs. Healthy and motivated once again, the Warriors are ready to make their push for another championship.

Golden State Warriors Facts:

Division Titles: 7

Conference Titles: 6

NBA Championships: 6

Clippers logoLos Angeles Clippers

For most of the franchise's history, the Clippers have found themselves at the bottom of the standings and with little hope for improving. After moving to Los Angeles in 1984, the Clippers only made it to the postseason four times in their initial 27 seasons. The franchise began to turn a corner in the early to mid 2010s with the arrival of Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and DeAndre Jordan. Despite making the playoffs for six consecutive seasons, and winning two Pacific Division championships, the Clippers struggled in the postseason and were never able to make a deep run. To date, the Clippers have never won a conference championship or played in the NBA Finals. Clippers fans still have reason to be optimistic for the future, though, with perennial All-Stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on their roster.

Los Angeles Clippers Facts:

Division Titles: 2

NBA Championships: 0

Lakers logoLos Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are rightfully one of the most popular and storied franchises in the NBA. Their success is rivaled only by longtime Eastern Conference foe, the Boston Celtics. The Lakers are always a top destination for free agents, which helps them remain fairly competitive, even in rare down years. Today's generation of fans have had the privilege of watching some of the NBA's foremost legends wear the purple and gold like Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James. The Lakers most recently found success in 2019-20 COVID season, where they won the NBA Bubble Finals. A series of injuries to key players like Anthony Davis has gotten their 2021-22 season off to a slow start, but they could still be a force to reckon with in the West come playoff time.

Suns logoPhoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns franchise success can be bucketed into four distinct eras. The Suns reached the 1976 NBA Finals shortly after being brought into the league via expansion. It would take the team almost three decades to reach the Finals again led by Charles Barkley in 1993. The Suns squared off against, and eventually lost to, Michael Jordan's Bulls. The Phoenix faithful had a more prolonged period of hope for their franchise from 2004-12 with Steve Nash, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Shawn Marion teaming up together in the desert. This trio pushed the Suns to the brink of another Finals appearance three times, but they were never able to get out of the West. Now, the Suns rest their hopes on young Devin Booker alongside one of the NBA's great point guards, Chris Paul. With a Finals run 2020-21, the expectations are sky high in the desert for this team to bring home its first ever championship.

Kings logoSacramento Kings

The Kings were a team without a longterm home for many seasons after its inception. From Rochester to Cincinnati to Kansas City and Omaha, the franchise couldn't find a suitable city until 1984 when they moved to Sacramento. Upon moving to Northern California, the Kings started to slowly build a team that would be competitive in the years to come. In the late 1990s through the early 2000s, the Kings found the right formula of players in Chris Webber, Vlade Divac, Jason Williams, and others. Nicknamed the 'Greatest Show on Court', this Kings squad made the playoffs for eight consecutive seasons, but only ever made it to the Western Conference Finals once in 2002. Since then, the Kings have not had a postseason appearance since 2006, finishing near the bottom of the West each year. The Kings continue to struggle as they've had significant turnover at the coaching and general manager positions in the last few years. Draft picks and player development will be key in getting the Kings back to prominence in the Pacific.
