You are correct but I think if the Knicks had their full roster they would be ELITE. They have a very talented team when healthy.

All Boston needs is a two guard who can play and they will be a tough team to beat.

Listen its the Heat above everyone in the League but the Pacers could give any team in the West a good series with the way they play defense. West is a little deeper but East has the best team so what ever..Plus Miami has dominated the West.

If Boston had a player get to the line at an elite level, that would really help them upgrade their offense. Today OKC got to many easy baskets that generated runs. If Boston had a run breaker in the form of a player that could get to the line 6 times a game i think they would be able to compete with elite teams with how well they still play on defense.

it's funny how West lovers are bragging about Western conference's mediocrity and pointing out to wins totals, forgetting that the best team in NBA plays in Eastern conference and pretty much owns all the best teams from the West too Who cares about bottom dwellers and mediocrities from both conferences? It's the top that counts

You're mistaken. OR and WA are pretty shitty overall. Bad weather, always raining, ugly women.

CA has it all. Women, beaches, mountains, snow, desert, lakes. And the greatest NBA franchise.

False. They either need a taller frontcourt or a younger overall team.

I wouldn't call the East a joke, I mean the Heat are the defending champs, do they automatically get my vote. Plus they have the hot hand now, so it's not that surprising that they're the favorites. As a matter of the fact, I think every team in the East other than the Heat are pretenders. Indiana? Sure they look promising. But let's be real, in the end the Heat will still have their way with them. The East was always top heavy.

But OP's right. In contrast the West has a lot more parity, and is a lot more competitive. So it does make it more difficult to get out of the first round being in a tougher conference. It's been like this for years. In the early 2000s, we all knew that the WCF was the real finals.

The 6-8 seeds in the west are probably enough to nab seed #3 in the east. Never liked the idea of divisions or conferences, it's BS that a team with a worse record makes the playoffs over a team with a better record.
