exactly. Toronto's biggest problem is they literally had nobody who could slow down James. But no one can be serious when they said the east has improved.

Was Toronto better this year or last?
Was Boston better this year or last?
Was Philly better this year or last?
Was Indiana better this year or last?

Everyone knows Houston and GSW were tÝp 2, but everyone else in West playoffs could easily lose to the above 4 and Cleveland.

Pelicans, Blazers, Timberwolves, and maybe Jazz would all beat the four teams above.

Get out. Jazz and Wolves had a losing record vs the East. Blazers arenít good. They would lose to Boston and Cavs. And would be a battle with others. And that was the 3rd seed.

So like I said 2 great teams and a bunch like the east.

Wizards taking a step backward hurts the east.

he's seriously underrating boston. i think toronto is tough to evaluate against non-lebron teams because against lebron it was all mental.

Is that your best response? You should have used that great function to delete your East comment, but instead you are doubling down like you actually think it's true.

You refuted with LOL.
Then you said actual games played are a schtick? I can't really argue with your feelz.


You didn't even have an argument. Minus a deleted one that stated the Wolves and Jazz had losing records vs the East due to teams in the East tanking. Not sure that made sense.

Were the four teams I listed better or worse than the prior year? If not, why do you think this?
