Yeah, it'd be pretty crazy if IND somehow still got the 1st seed after their putrid play in 2014. It's hard to decipher who to cheer for because we still don't know how Bulls/Raptors will play out with seeding, as we obviously want to end up in IND's bracket for a 2nd round matchup, but I also want to see PHX in the playoffs over MEM. It's hard cheering for MIA, but I think we have to in this case.

The Pistons should be tanking, because they're dangerously close to sending their 2014 pick to the Bobcats. The pick from the trade to ditch Ben Gordon's contract is only protected 1-8. Given their shit situation, they need a pick in this year's supposedly good draft, especially a lotto. It could help the Pistons new GM start to right the ship.

Zach Randolph is pounding the shit out of the Heat's front court. 12-15 from the field.

Indy with a chance to go up 4 with freethrows and 14 ticks left. They split the pair to go up three and then foul the bucks on a 3-pt attempt. OT.

Miami's defense is just nonexistent. Neither the Heat nor the Pacers appear to have any kind of identity right now. I think Chicago is the best team in the East right now, with Toronto and Brooklyn not too far behind. That could change in a hurry, but there isn't much indication that will happen.

Woops - indy with a buzzer beater. So they can still finish with the top seed.

It's arguable. They're 3.5 games back and only have 32 wins. Pretty crappy in my opinion.

Most individually talented, but crappy team is the NYK...hands down

Followed by DET and SAC. Although SAC hasn't had a full season to prove themselves.

The Cavs have the most talented player of the crappy teams, but I really like what I see from the Jacque Vaughn system. Other then the overall win column of course.

Knicks are not a crappy team. They have good players that don't play hard.
Dysfunctional is a synthentic crappy. It is not a legit crappy.

crappy is crappy. no matter how you get there or why...you're crappy.

lol.

and on paper NYK, DET and SAC have the most individually stacked/talented rosters, but are just complete crap as a team. in one way or another they're all horrible teams. does not matter how.
