Re: Thank goodness that the Bulls are in the East
It will balance out in a couple of seasons when Phoenix loses Steve Nash and Shaq, the Spurs have to rebuild, the Mavericks need to rebuild and teams in the east like the Cavs (if they can get some players around LeBron), Hawks, Sixers, Magic, Nets, Wizards and Heat and hopefully the Bulls will all be very good teams capable of competing with any team out west.
The teams out west that are going to be good and get better are the Lakers, Jazz, Rockets, Blazers and Hornets. The Nuggets can't compete as is and neither can the Warriors. I'm not including Dallas, San Antonio or Phoenix only because this season and next season will probably be the last chances that their current rosters have to really compete.
