Clearly not Miami. Just MAKING the playoffs is the goal for the Heat this year.
But back to the question. Do you mean best record after the regular season, best team going into the playoffs (not necessarily the same) or team that represents the east in the finals?
Best record: Det or Chi
Hot team going in: ??
East Champ: Boston (if they make the playoffs) else NJ
