The NBA is incredibly lop-sided right now, with the East only sporting one team (Pistons) that would have a shot at reaching the second round if it had to compete in the Western bracket of the playoffs this year.

Oden and Durant are going to Seattle and Portland.

The West just gets stronger and stronger, people, and we're on the verge of seeing a very long streak of Western Conf teams winning championships.

I don't see Durant being a force in the NBA. He reminds me of Richard Washington out of UCLA that the KC Kings drafted. He had a mediocre career, at best.

It's cyclical, and it's not exclusive to the NBA.

AFC has been the dominant conference in football for a while....

American League seems to always win the All Star game.....

Between 1988 and 1998, an Eastern Conference team won the NBA title 8 times.....

East has won two of the last 3 championships. Also they have the two young superstars that the league wants to build around in Lebron and Dewayne Wade.

Even though the East has 2 of the last 3 titles, the Western conference is much better top to bottom and is definitely more enjoyable to watch. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pistons win it this year and make it 3 out of 4.

I'm curious how you could feel that way about someone who averaged 25 and 12 (or so) his freshman season, torching the best teams he played against. I've yet to hear a single expert, scout, coach, GM, former NBA player, etc. not drool over the kid.

I don't think he watches must basketball.
