Default Re: What is it going to take to balance East VS West?

Durant comes to the East in 2016, the Bucks move to Seattle bc their stadium deal falls through and New Orleans is swapped for them into the East.

Boom 2016 the top 3 players in the league are all in the East.

Last 11 years it's gone
West: 7
East: 5

And if Bron had a healthy team this year (or didn't wet the bed in 2011) then it would be 6/6 lol


Good try
The west has had a winning record against the east 15 of the last 16 years.

This. You play each team twice, one home and one away and best 16 goes to playoffs.
This.

Like I said, no conferences, 30 teams = 58 games, each team twice, home and away... its simple, but I bet they will somehow **** it up by not changing anything, or changing it but messing some other shit up, or not fully filling the hole.

People have said Top 16 for a while, but how about...


Moving 4 or 5 teams from the West to the East ? Swap the Texas teams and Memphis to the East; move Chicago, Milwaukee, and some other filler teams West.

Would that help ?

Travelling would be way out of Wack.

Moving teams only makes sense if the teams are close within the divisions.

I don't think the Owners would ever go for 58 games, but it is a great idea.

Not much up and coming in the East.

And outside the Cavs, and maybe the Bulls/Hawks if free agency goes right...there are just a bunch of teams that would struggled to make the playoffs in the West and aren't legit contenders at all.

Surely the "stacked Heat" with Bosh and Wade are contenders, no?

If you look at the last 3 drafts arguably the 3 best players from every year are all in the west.

Davis
Gobert
Wiggins

west stays winning

that proves absolutely nothing. The lakers won a bunch of championships in the 80s but the west still was a much weaker conference.

The easiness of the current east helped lebron, as his opponent usually had to go through a gauntlet.

Maybe...if they are healthy and they bring back Dragic and Wade...sure, but I don't think they would be good enough to actually win.

Same thing with Hawks and Bulls...that is why I said depending on what happens in free agency. They'd have to add legit pieces. The Heat are pretty much locked in to what they can do. Dragic and Wade...and maybe fill out the rest of the team a little.

I just can't see that Heat team beating a healthy Cavs team....or any Healthy top 4 West team.

Like the Bulls and Hawks...they'd struggle to make the playoffs in the West and lose in round 1.

Hawks might be a top 6 seed given their regular season success, but they aren't beating top 4 west teams in a playoff series unless something changes.

West is only getting better.

Thunder, Warriors, Spurs, Clippers, and Rockets....those teams are all elite when healthy. Only team in the East on that level is the Cavs.
