Uh... 18-5 record against the West. Is that not who they'd be playing were they in the Western Conference?

And they play down to their competition because they are too good. Why bother getting up to play against the lame East when you can coast during the regular season and waltz to the Finals every year like it's nothing?

East against West

Pacers 12-9
Celtics 10-8
Hawks 10-9
Magic 8-10
Nets 7-10
76ers 9-13

Bucks 6-11
Wizards 7-13
Raptors 8-15
Pistons 4-15
Cavs 4-15
Bobcats 3-20

Lulz 4th/5th placed teams in the East (Nets/Bulls) have a worse record against the West than the Kings and Hornets have against the East.

The new Kings owners should argue that Seattle is so far West that is already East again. Suddenly they jump from lottery team in the West to homecourt advantage in the East.

The two records I bolded are the only two that matter for the discussion in this thread.

Not sure what the Lakers have to do with this, they suck this year, so? Are they the only team in the Western Conference? In fact, Lakers in the East would make the playoffs. This coming from a Bulls fan.

And yes, the Raptors legit now but they have been pathetic for most of the season. I mentioned them like I could have mentioned Cavs, Pistons, Magic or Wizards until a week ago

Why do you call them the Miami "Heatles"? People actually liked The Beatles...

It's because the Heat are better suited to playing Western conference basketball and against Western conference teams the way their team is constituted.

Even bad East teams actually play D and are borderline dirty for this era (e.g. Pacers).

Cuz the East, in general, play better defense. The top-10 defensive teams would prove that.

Miami is super-stacked.

What's the surprise? They have it very easy.
