This is huge.
And yes the East is weak, but the West is also wide open. I don't see a single team that runs away with this thing right now.
I don't have faith in Minnesota and Portland. I don't fear OKC anymore. I don't fear the Clippers. Houston is mentally weak as all hell. I don't fear Dallas either. San Antonio is the best team like always, but I've always thought of them as a very good team that's consistent. They'll out last a great team that's too inconsistent, but they won't beat a great team. That's why they lost to Miami and that's why they lost to Los Angeles all those years ago. Are we that great team? No. Just making the point that they're not invincible either.
Please don't say that's why they lost to Miami. They lost to miami because of a couple of rebounds lost and a missed free throw.
San Antonio lost the series, but to do that Miami had to take advantage of missed opportunities. I'd argue those facts work in my favor. San Antonio was just a very good team and they couldn't be a great team down the stretch.
