Default Current east reminds me of the late 90s east

A lot of similarities:

1 dominant favorite team in the Heat(Bulls), lead by the best player in the game in Lebron(Jordan) with his sidekick Wade(Pippen).

2 very good teams in the Knicks lead by 1 very good player in Melo(Ewing), and a tough grind it out team in the Pacers with no superstar but alot of good players

On the contrary in the late 90's you got teams like the above 500 Cavs and the Bullets who were 8th/9th seed but could be the 5th seed out west.

Lebron = Jordan and Wade = Pippen

Weren't those Knicks and Pacers teams better than the Knicks and Pacer teams now? Maybe I'm confusing the early and mid-90's Knicks with the late-90's Knicks, but I don't know what you're cut-off is, either. Because when Jordan started his 2nd 3-peat, it was still mid-90's. Pretty sure the Heat had a 60 win team one of those 3-peat years, too.

I just remember there being more 50+ win teams in the East in the 90's then there were this year. And I don't remember the 8-seeds being 30-something win teams like they've been about every year the last 5-7 seasons.

Why is that funny? Do you not understand analogies?

He is comparing their status on the team and in the league. He isn't directly comparing them as players.

It's not even really that funny, LeBron and Wade are no slouches. You can argue that the talent level is fairly close.
