A new season is upon us, and with it comes plenty of intriguing storylines. From massive traves and superstar uncertainty in the East to a West perhaps the deepest it has ever been, here is an early season NBA Power ranking.
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.
