As you can see....every team in the Eastern Conference is at least .500 or better for the first time in a while...and not only that....3 teams in the East have at least 20 wins while the West only have 2 teams with 20 wins...and you can see how the Knicks are rising game after game, while the seeds 5-8 is unpredictable in the West.

My Prediction - Eastern Conference

i think you mean deeper. and it's still the west. look at teams on the rise, and the east bottom is as low as its top is high. plus... the bobcats are in the east so... end of argument.

The East is getting stronger and I want it to be the East, but I still say the West.

I think some of your reasons aren't very good. For example; you say East has 3 teams with 20 wins and West only has 2. Thats true, But PHL has played 30 games while OKC has only played 28. Chances are they win one of the next two and then its even.

Instead, you should look at winning %. If you wanna compare top 3 teams in each conference, 3rd team is East has .667 winning % and 3rd in West has .679 winning %.

Also look at the bottom teams. Only 1 team in the West has less than 10 wins. 5 teams in the East have less than 10 wins.

There is only 1 team in the West that has less than a winning % of .345. There are currently 5 teams in the East with a worse winning % than .345.

I say West is still deeper.

How is this even a question? It's the West and it isn't even close. You can argue the top of the conferences all you want, but the West goes 10 deep. Their 8, 9, and 10 **** all over the East's. Phoenix are second last in the West and they're still only half a game behind the East's #9, and they're doing it in a tougher conference.

The West is deeper.

the west is by far deeper, But the east is growing stronger, there 8 seed would smack our 8 seed(by the end of the season) But i believe that the best two teams are in the east

I agree with this. Overall West is deeper but I think whoever of Heat/Bulls wins the East wins the title this year.

The East is more top-heavy but top to bottom, the West is stronger.

Plus, the East has the Bobcats and Wizards.

Yikes.

Milwaukee 12 18
Cleveland 11 17
Detroit 10 22
Toronto 9 23
New Jersey 8 23
Washington 7 24
Charlotte 4 26


When teams in the east are playing teams like this ^ twice as much as the west are, it kind of makes the east look a bit.......... hollow to be honest. A lot of wins, but a lot of **** teams to play against as well

why does this keep coming up? If you meshed both conferences together, I would guess over 10 teams that are in the west now would be in the playoffs every year, the east would have 4-5. The west has been the better conference for a LONG time now. Is it balancing slowly? I guess, but which teams are the rising teams that were terrible over the past few years? THey are out west.

The west obviously has better GM's, and better run organizations.

East may be a bit top heavy, but there is way more talent out west.

This.

If you put Gstate, Phoenix, Minny, etc. in the East, they'd probably make the playoffs. People also don't realize that this season we have more intra-conference games, which mean the west teams play the tougher west teams more often.

West is Deeper, The East's top teams are better though.

Let's look at the numbers:

West vs. East

Win/Loss 83/58 = 58.9%

4 West teams have losing record vs East, 3 even, and 8 are winning!

Last season record was 261-189 = 58.0%

The notion that East is deeper or East is improving, evidently, neither is supported.

The 8th seeded Bucks and 9th seeded Knicks have worse records than the Warriors, who aren't even sniffing the playoffs in the West.

What exactly are you talking about?
