One team to LA makes sense, two teams to LA makes no sense. 

LA hasn't been able to support one team in the past.  That may have changed, but not to the extend that it can support two. 

The only sense is the stadium sharing.

Raiders aligning themselves with the Chargers on a land deal in Carson;  Rams going for a stadium in Inglewood, would like to bring in the Chargers also.  St. Louise offering a 50/50 stadium deal to the Rams, San Diego finally coming around to offer a (4) way split cost stadium deal for the Chargers, which is probably too late and not good enough.  Oakland says a stadium plan is coming, but they've said that for years.  Seems like the easiest team to move to LA would be the Raiders, but they don't have the stadium money to go it alone.  If the Chargers don't move they will probably lose season ticket holders, as 25% of their sales come from Orange County.  Plus if a team will be operating in a new stadium in LA by 2018, then they will be added to the vote next year for the 2020 Super Bowl.

The best arrangement for a shared stadium will involve the Rams, as you really don't want two AFCW teams in the same stadium.

If that were to happen, one of them would move to the NFC West.  And an NFC West team would move to the AFC West.

That's why I said the best arrangement involves the Rams, as you don't have to mess around with more realignment.
