NBA: Why We Need The Eastern Conference

The Eastern Conference is All We Have

Eastern Conference, what in the world do we make of it now? The King is gone but in his absence the Klaw rises in Toronto. The kids are more than alright in Boston and the process is near completion. Indiana has its own mini-LeBron and the soap opera in Washington offers a new season with plenty of twists and turns. The Greek Freak is making a claim for the throne one stride at a time and what do we make of the Unicorn in his absence?

There is no real answer to any of this as the Eastern Conference resembles a competitive AAU circuit more than it does an NBA conference. In other words, literally anything could happen in the Eastern Conference and we are here for all the drama that comes with that.

The Eastern Conference deserves more respect than it currently gets, the Eastern Conference is the best thing that could have resulted from the super team the Golden State Warriors have put together. Let's be honest, we all expect the Golden State Warriors to repeat as champions and that damages the competiveness of the NBA, why watch if we know how it ends?

The Eastern Conference is the anti-hero we need but do not deserve. For years, we have bashed on and ridiculed the Eastern Conference as LeBron continued to dominate season after season but now the conference is the only type of competitive and unpredictable basketball we are going to get from the NBA.  

The Eastern Conference is saving the NBA.

Even before Chet Holmgren's season-ending injury, Banchero was the favorite to win the rookie of the year award, but I'm going to go a step further. I think Paolo Banchero will make the all-star team as a forward in the eastern conference. I am convinced he's a bonafide star. He can score, playmake, and I can tell the game is...

Once seen as one of the most promising young stars in the NBA, Washington Wizards big man Kristaps Porzingis has had injuries derail every one of his seasons since his rookie year. He had a great end to his season last year, however, after being traded to the Wizards from the Dallas Mavericks, averaging a stat line of 22/9/3. I...
