Shaq, Duncan, Dirk, Kobe, their management and their coaches have created a conference that teams have to build great teams to compete in.
8 out of the last 12 championships and counting. It's the premiere conference and has been since Shaq went to LA and a couple of years later Jordan retired.
And a good chance not even half of the East champions win the title, if they had to go through the West. Certainly D-Whistle cannot get 16 games worth of highway robbery by the refs. Donīt think Miami survives the West play-offs during that stretch they had to play without Bosh either.
