East is still a bloodbath.

At least we don't know who will win.

It's like the power shift has just completely balanced itself out in the East


It's up for grabs, again

Agree 100%.

Only an idiot would say otherwise.

Come on m8.

The East is wide open. Exciting young teams and unpredictability.

The West is a snoozfest as usual.

Was just actually thinking about it. The last time the Western CONFERENCE was even relevant was when the Thunder had the Warriors on the ropes in the playoffs.

Klay Thompson bought Golden State back frome the dead.

Then Steve Adams gave Westbrook and Durant a bunch of chance to be the hero and they choked them all away.

Seems like a lifetime ago, huh?

The East will be fun this year. West is shit because the Warriors walk through everyone.

Just because the East is now up for grabs that has nothing to do with the strength of the conferences.

For the last 20 years, the West has been unquestionably the much harder conference with the much better players and teams.

East being up for grabs just means they are all equally shit and wouldn't hold a candle to any of the West playoff teams in a 7 game series.

Bran has purposely hidden in the weakest conference in history for the entirety of his career. The 8 finals appearances in a row literally mean nothing in the YMCEast.

Refer to reality below (last 20 years):

The above chart is useless unless there were no injuries and all teams played each other healthy. Plus using the same line up, with the same minutes played, from game 1 to game 82 with no trades being made and the same players fouling out at the same exact time as if/when they did against other teams.

Simply impossible to gauge.

To those saying the East is a bloodbath I just don’t see it. I think it’s Celtics 1a and then either Raptors or Sixers. Am I missing something? The Eastern Conference is terrible. I’m looking at depth charts and seeing maybe 3 or 4 teams out West that will probably miss the playoffs and be a guaranteed 4 or 5 seed in the East.
