The East Is Least
When looking at it from a strategic point of view – as these guys no doubt do – playing the Eastern Conference is where it’s at.
Forget the fact LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers just stunned everybody in winning the NBA Championship. The East is most definitely least in terms of basketball quality.
How big the gap is, we truly don’t know.
What we do know, though, is should Durant come to the Knicks, his path to playing on basketball’s greatest stage every spring (NBA Finals), will be one much easier.
