    11th in East and out of the play-in is 9-9 Atlanta Hawks
    11th in West and out of the play-in is 6-11 OKC Thunder

    Yes, the West has the Warriors but the East seems to have overtaken the West overall.

    It’ll all even out. Do you think a team like the Wizards are title contenders?

    Hard to say. I like their roster. I picked them to get the 1 seed in our season preview on the pod. So when you have a top 3 seed, you definitely have a chance. If Beal and Dinwiddie stay healthy, I'd give them a chance to win a series or two. Maybe even go to Finals like Suns did. I doubt Wiz would actually win in the Finals though. We'll see. Everything is to be determined by basketball games that have not yet been played.

    If the Bucks get healthy they’re repeating. Giannis is playing better than he ever has and the upgrade in the starting lineup of Grayson Allen over Divincinzo is looking real nice.

    I like the Bucks. Was glad they won last year. I'd be happy with them winning this year if it wasn't the Blazers.

    would you have said the same about Atlanta?

    Sometimes teams come out of nowhere.

    On the whole, the East is 139-128. They have played 92 intra-conference games, meaning they are 47-36 vs the west. That's a pretty significant disparity in inter-conference record.

    Wish I had time to compare to past seasons...

    Yes it appears it's gone from the Leastern conference to Beastern conference, many teams are looking good out east.

    Atlanta got hot at the right time but at no time did I think they had a legit shot at winning the title.
