Strongest Division in the NBA

 

I was thinking about playoff seeding when I realized that our division (Northwest) is the strongest division to be playing in. Of the 5 teams 4 are probably playoff bound, Denver, Utah, Portland, OKC. Standings by division show that only the SE division can boast the same, but only 2 of the 4 teams are above .500

Since each team plays more games within their divisions does this mean that the NW division contenders inherently have a tougher schedule? And since your Nuggets reign supreme over the toughest division, are they the league's best? My opinion is yes. The losses the Nuggets have incurred have mostly come at the hands of hungry bottom feeders and the Nuggets playing down to their paltry level. The Nuggets also boast more wins over playoff calibre teams than any other club.
