he can thank the Wizards, Magic, and Celtics inconsistent playing

the Raps are also on a bit of a streak as of late

i'd prefer to call their play "shitty" as opposed to "inconsistent"

they simply suck. the eastern conference is terrible... so much for the "balance of power" shifting.

9 games under .500, 2 games out of the playoffs. the nba... it's faaaan-tastic.

hahaha, that's true

I'm a Magic fan at heart because I've grown up watching them

but I can't stand Stevie Trade Rumor or Grant Hill, the Human Band-aid

Dwight Howard will be an absolute beast in a few years, but he needs a leader, great passer, and a general offensive scheme, which the Magic seriously lack

The balance of power may not have shifted to the East as a whole, but the Pissed-ons have certainly dismantled the defending champ Spurs on both occasions this season.

Indeed. Now let's just hope we don't have to play Utah in the finals.

i can't comment on the pistons.

i've made my feelings on them well known in the past, but they're playing too well right now to say 'em again and look like i have half a clue as to what i'm talking about.

there's something to be said for a team that like each other, play well together, and have an amazingly high level of confidence in each other... can't hurt that flip, for all the insults i've thrown his way in the past, is using rasheed wallace WAY better than larry brown ever did. 'sheed is still capable of losing his mind at any second, and without brown's calming tar heel influence to keep him in check, i still wouldn't be surprised to see wallace just loose his mind if the pistons hit a bad stretch of games.

that said, you'd have to be an idiot to not say that they have to be considered the favorites to win the title as of today. i still think that if shaq's healthy heading into the playoffs no one beats the heat... but that's turning into a big if, because shaq simply isn't keeping himself in as good shape as he should be.

Miami and San Antonio are probably trying to come up with a way to pry Mehmet Okur from the Jazz.

i have a feeling san antonio has sunk into that same mode that the final years of the shaq/kobe lakers had gotten into... the "we can just turn it on in the playoffs, no need to kill ourselfs in the regular season" mode. sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't.

i know that's strange to say about a team that's 27-9, but it just doesn't look like they're playing with the same fire and enegry that the pistons are. maybe that's just a reflection of tim duncan's personality vs. 'sheed's personality

I always thought the Spurs were a 2nd half of the season team anyways

Finley and Van Exel will start to gel into the system, and they'll ride that momentum into the drudge that is The First Round of the NBA playoffs

Apparently Isiah Thomas has called out the Sports Guy on Stephen A. Smith's radio show.
