Default East Vs. West

With the end of the Jordan era came the end of the East's rule over the league. For the past decade the West has ruled the NBA with an iron fist. However, with all the moves made over the off-season its looking as though, finally, the East is about to reestablish itself as the best conference in the league. What are your thoughts on the topics? Please answer the poll.

I'm not sure. Albeit alot of the teams in the West are aging (Spurs, Suns, Mavs), but they still can't be taken lightly. I think in another 3 to 4 years if the rosters on the East remain relatively the same, I don't think it will be that similar. I think the East will be the dominate conference. But the present time, I say its a "draw".

For all intents and purposes it's pretty even. Minnesota certainly balances the scales pretty nicely, if nothing else.

The Lakers are also aging. Especially with Artest i/o Ariza.

I still find the west to be a dreaded place to have road trips, more than our division rivals.

maybe in 1-2 years the east will become better or par with the west.

From top to bottom the West is still the better conference. If you're looking at the top halves of either conference, the East might be slightly stronger. As a whole though I still think the West has more quality playoff teams.

I equate most teams with how good there big men are and easily the west has better big men, I do agree that the east is slowly closing the gap.

The east has some good teams but it really doesn't match up even close to the West. IDC if the East had the 3 top teams in the league, what I care about is how the West has all the teams with .500+ winning percentage. That makes the playoffs so exciting to watch
