I don't think I've ever seen a tighter Western Conference race in my life.

WESTERN CONFERENCE
1. New Orleans 36-15 ... - (.706 winning percentage)
2. Phoenix 37-16 ... - (.698 winning percentage)
3. L.A. Lakers 35-17 ... 1.5 GB
4. Utah 34-19 ... 3 GB
5. San Antonio 34-17 ... 2 GB (.667 winning percentage)
6. Dallas 35-18 ... 2 GB (.660 winning percentage)
7t. Golden State 32-20 ... 4.5 GB
7t. Houston 32-20 ... 4.5 GB
7t. Denver 32-20 ... 4.5 GB

10. Portland 28-24 ... 8.5 GB
11. Sacramento 23-28 ... 13 GB
12. L.A. Clippers 17-33 ... 18.5 GB
13. Memphis 14-38 ... 22.5 GB
14. Seattle 13-38 ... 23 GB
15. Minnesota 10-41 ... 26 GB

EASTERN CONFERENCE
1. Boston 41-9 ... -
2. Detroit 39-13 ... 3 GB
3. Orlando 33-21 ... 10 GB
4. Cleveland 29-23 ... 13 GB
5. Toronto 28-23 ... 13.5 GB
6. Washington 25-27 ... 17 GB
7t. New Jersey 23-30 ... 19.5 GB (.434 winning percentage)
7t. Philadelphia 23-30 ... 19.5 GB (.434 winning percentage)

9. Atlanta 21-28 ... 19.5 GB (.429 winning percentage)
10. Chicago 21-31 ... 21 GB
11. Indiana 21-32 ... 21.5 GB
12t. Milwaukee 19-34 ... 23.5 GB
12t. Charlotte 19-34 ... 23.5 GB
14. New York 15-37 ... 27 GB
15. Miami 9-42 ... 32.5 GB

Yes, there are an insane NINE teams at the top of the Western Conference within 4.5 games of each other, meaning each one is a losing streak away from falling out of the playoffs completely. If anyone will be the odd team out, I'd have to look at New Orleans. There's no way they can keep up their torrid pace with ZERO fan support.

The Eastern Conference belongs to Boston and Detroit and I can only see Boston as the real championship contender. Detroit is constantly haunted by the Cleveland LeBrons, who gave them a huge scare in '06 and finished the job in '07. As long as a Detroit/Cleveland match looms, I don't count on the Pistons getting very far.

Couldn't the NBA make an executive order and put the 9-10 seeds in the West into the East? The Nets and Sixers are just terrible teams.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

I just keep staring at those standing, trying to figure out the least probable statistic. I've finally settled on "how is the difference between 5th and 7th in the East 33% greater than 1st and 9th in the West?"

Stern doesn't want to do that. It's come up in previous years, and he's said he doesn't think it makes sense because of the unbalanced schedule.

I slept through a bit of the fourth quarter but managed to see them blow it at the end. You know, if Hedo had managed to not turn his two easy points into a turnover and two easy LAKER points...
