East was actually better than the West this year. Three of the four best teams were in the East.
And By East style basketball do mean defense? Because it has been proven time and time again that defense wins rings. The best defensive teams are in the East.
Yep, the West playoff teams after LA had better records overall than the East after the main 3 but the West had like 6 awful teams that won less than 25 games, the East just had Washigton. East teams always did much better in the West than vice versa, even with the elite Western conference ones, not just the bottom feeders. The East was definitely more competitive.
