By your logic are Magic rings asterisks????

Easier road to the Finals with a more Stacked roster.

Facts are facts

Apparently OKC can't handle defensive based teams... which means OKC might be worse off if some of the east teams were in the west.

8th seed in the East will likely take out the Pacers but I think Pacers would crush OKC in a series. Match ups and styles make fights.

They certainly can. Not sure why people are over looking either Toronto or Washington or even Brooklyn.

Well I seriously believe Toronto and Washington are on that level if not better, this Miami team is a lot worse than their past Championship teams as well..

Truth, Heatles are in for some battles in the east. Bad NBA Fans about to wake up to the realization that Mia is not invincible

Least wins by conference opponents for a Finals appearance in NBA history I'd imagine. Probably not even close. (This is assuming the Hawks somehow make the ECF.)

It's not extremely likely. But it would be funny because everyone is saying they have such an easy road to the finals. But if the Heat actually thought that way, they would be dead meat.

Word, it might be unlikely but there have been crazier upsets. This post season already might potentially provide some as well.

I've said this before but this Miami team is jot even as good as past teams.

Probably the worst in the LeBron era and their role players look like they are on their last legs. There is only so much LeBron can do.

Guess you missed the 87 Lakers run that was posted with teams under. 500 in multiple rounds.

Surely you have seen from these playoffs that having the better regular season record does NOT always mean that they are better.

Facts are facts

This whole " put this team in the west" argument makes no sense. You can't just transplant a whole teams win loss record from another conference and expect it to be the same against a completely different conference. That's the most idiotic point I have seen in some time and you keep making it.

Washington/Toronto and Brooklyn are teams with depth and talent. I don't see what makes west teams, especially lower seeds like Dallas/Memphis/GSW a tier above them.
