Raiders donate $250,000 for California wild fire relief Every single professional sports team in California has been impacted by the wild fires that burnt throughout the state over the past couple weeks . From the northern part of the state to down south, these wild fires are the deadliest in the history of California. As of Wednesday evening, 86 people had died with north of 500 missing. The Oakland Raiders are now doing their part to help those impacted — donating $250,000 for wild fire relief to help those impacted in Butte County. “The Paradise Camp Fire struck very close to home for me,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement.

The Utah Jazz came into the season tipped for good things and a possible deep run in the playoffs. Last week they picked up one of the NBA’s best sharpshooters of the modern era in Kyle Korver. They have the second-most road wins in the league.

All good, right?

Kind of, except that the Jazz also enter Thursday night's game against Houston in 12th place in the Western Conference.

Welcome to life in the wild, wild West, a conference where you don’t even have to be bad in order to look really, really bad.

“It is a tough house to live in, man,” Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said.

Will Smith: Wild Wild West (Video 1999). It ' s a Will Smith / Barry Sonnenfeld movie. You can't take it seriously. The humor is perfectly subtle and dry at times, and over the top at others. If you want a light-hearted evening , rent this. Probably don't buy it, but rent it.

James West : Well, I can see where it 'd be difficult for a man of your stature to keep in touch with even HALF the people you know.

As of Thursday, in matchups between teams from rival conferences, the West bested the East by a margin of 82-52.

That’s not a blip, it’s factual proof of what we already knew, that the West is stronger, deeper and just better than its counterpart.

“I can’t remember a time when it was as one-sided as this,” Shaquille O’Neal told USA TODAY Sports recently. “It’s not even close.”

All of which has turned the West into a place where chaos reigns, even little more than a quarter of the way through the season.

However, don’t feel too sorry for teams like the Jazz, 12-13 overall and 9-7 on the road, because even the briefest surge would not only lift them from near the foot of the ladder but put them firmly in playoff position. They're just one game behind the eighth-place Dallas Mavericks, for example.

The Wild Wild West is an American science fiction western television series that ran on the CBS television network for four seasons from September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969.

Meanwhile, a record of 11-13 is enough to put the Charlotte Hornets in a presumptive playoff berth in the Eastern Conference, while an 11-12 mark leaves last season’s Western Conference near-champion Houston languishing in 13th. That’s how tough, and how tight, it is in the West.

No one really knows who to blame for it, although having basketball’s best player switch  coasts and immediately revitalize the Los Angeles Lakers didn’t do anything to alleviate the issue.

“It’s made the West considerably harder,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said of LeBron James’ move from Cleveland. “Because the Lakers are now in the thick of the playoff picture.”

He was right about the Lakers, but things can go either way. L.A. might rue having thrown away opportunities, as two more wins would have seen it stand proudly atop the West this week. On the flip side, the Lakers are only 3 ½ games up on the team eight spots below them, the Rockets.

Wild Wild West Lyrics. Forty seven dead beats living in the back street North, east , west , south, all in the same house Sitting in a back room, waiting for Now put your flags in the air and march them up and down You can live it up, live it up all over the town And turn to the left, turn to the right I don't care

Perhaps things will even out over time, but don’t count on it, at least not if last season is anything to go by. Back then, just three wins out of 82 games separated third-seeded Portland and the Denver Nuggets, who missed out on the playoffs altogether.

And that was before LeBron showed up, before Golden State's struggles seemed to bring them back to the field and before Houston got sloppy and San Antonio got weaker.

The West, it seems, just keeps getting wilder, with the only certainty being that margins are slim and uncertainty rules.
