Wouldn't East teams road trips out west be more difficult???

When the Lakers are out East they play teams that are bunched together
when the Knicks are out West there is a lot more travelling that is done between multiple time zones.

Teams in the East dont play the Clippers, Nuggets, Spurs, Warriors, and Thunder 4 times a year. That alone is a possible 10 extra losses, lakers could avoided, and to top things off, they play teams like the Jazz, Rockets and Dallas, teams that would be in the playoffs in the east

How does that have nothing to do with anything? It directly addresses the point because the OP was about how the Lakers would fare in the Eastern conference, consequently playing more Eastern conference teams. Their record against said teams is one of the main things that would affect their record as an Eastern conference team. How is that not crystal clear?

And to the MMM, the Lakers are 3 games above .500 vs. the East, so yes.

Not really, just one or two good road trips, West teams have to do it constantly even whwn they play within their conference...East teams still have the advantage because they stay local for an extra 2 games

East can play whatever they want, still the inferior conference and have been for quite some time now. All tho things seem to be alot more even than they use to be. Lower seeded teams are alot more comparable. Denver is the 5th seed in the West and would be the 2nd seed in the East, Memphis the 4th and would be the 2nd and so on.

The 8th seed in the West would be the 8th seed in the East. Jazz 32 wins, Celtics 33 wins and 7th seed.

This. LA would be in 9th place right now in the East as well.

8th place east = MIL, .508 average, 30 wins 29 losses. Aka OVER .500, unlike LA.

Wow, what a silly thread.
