How can you say no team is the East is as talented as the Heat year when the Heat essentially have the SAME players. Thats just a stupid statement.
Also, there is a point in the East winners to play the West winners..it's to decide the NBA champion. I can't believe how absurd your comments have been. Sure the West will be favored, but it's about match up, execution and adjustments in the finals. You might be in denial about last year, but yes, the Heat beat the Mavs 4 games in a row and won the NBA title. It's dumb to say that there is no point in even playing if they are going to lose in the finals. Then why should all the non playoff teams even play regular season games if they won't be around in post season? what a stupid way of thinking...seriously..
