Top to bottom the West has always been better. West where you need 50 wins just to make an 8 seed. Bravo for the East that they have 2 title contenders every year. Doesn't mean that top to bottom it's not a complete joke.

Agreed that the West was better as a conference but the East wasn't always able to compete with the west at the top but from 04-11 that changed a bit.

from 1999-2003 the West dominated the East
since than the top has been more comparable

It seemed like maybe the east was going to get better for a while. That obviously isn't going to happen.

That's my point. Every yr it's just 2 teams in the East that matter usually. The others are just practice/warm-up.

yea but compared to 1999-2003 and the last 2 season
the east was competitive vs. the West

from 04-11 there were multiple years where the East at the top was better while the west was better in the middle/bottom. Overall they were not that far apart while other stretches like currently the West is strong throughout.

East has 4 good teams

Heat
Pacer
Knicks
Boston

No team would want to play Boston in the playoffs. No matter what they do in the regular season they will be hard to beat in the playoffs. They should trade Rondo for Eric Gordon if possible.

How many of those teams are elite though?
