Default The East is back to being a joke

The only two teams worth a damn in the Eastern Conference are MIA & IND.I bet no other team from the East is a threat for the NBA title, especially with all the injuries.

Knicks' $100 million dollar bench warmer is out.
Boston is missing Rondo.
The Bulls' "MVP" isn't coming back.

All the other teams? Who cares? I don't think anyone is really expecting the Nets to get it together. ATL & MIL? Lol. Those are just practice teams for the big boys to warm up in the 1st round.

The East has been a joke for a long time & we are once again seeing only 2 teams worth a shit. Back to business.

The West, on the other hand, has been the conference to watch. Practically every team in the West playoff picture is good enough to make a deep run. The Lakers taking the 8th spot today is just icing on the cake. It just means the 1st round of the West is set to be memorable.

Thoughts? I'm not trolling. I think I'm just stating the obvious. Do you guys agree or disagree that the East is a joke & the West is the one to watch?

It is what it is. People can't discredit Miami for it. They are not responsible for the other teams.

The West has 8 pretenders and the Heat play better against those 8 teams in comparison to the East 7 teams under them

Meh.... the Heat and Toronto were first round teams with just Wade and Bosh alone. They would probably be a little better, but probably not title contenders. The Cavs would still be a top 2 team in the East, but LeBron alone still couldn't win a title and he'd probably be ringless. The East would still have their injuries and stuff, so really the East would still suck.

Best team in the nba is in the east, Im not even sure if the spurs and thunder are on that level. West has quite a few more good teams though, that cant be argued

The Knicks are worth the same amount of damn as the Pacers, hence their identical records. So it's really just Miami.
