    The east is sooo much more interesting than the west now

  • Nicky D  (Feb 11, 2019)

    At least the top 5 teams in the east are

  • Alex Carrillo  (Feb 11, 2019)

    Easy there buddy. You mean this is the first year the east is competitive lol

  • The East is impossible to call.

  • Marckus McNeil  (Feb 10, 2019)

    I got the C's

  • LA Clippers  (Feb 8, 2019)

    I bet Stephen A. only seen one game of the Bucks all season.

  • +Stay Cappin Celtics are always the fauvorite to reach finals, despite sloppy games during regular. We all know that. However all other teams including and Bucks got their chances. And about Bucks there is decision this team to stay top next years. Giannis is loyal and shall do what possible to help this team.

    Next time he comes to first take he better bring the minions with him...

  • Lee Chang  (Feb 10, 2019)

    His top minion betrayed him already. Damn he still had tons minions with My Twolves.

  • Sean Chareonsilp  (Feb 8, 2019)

    God pigeon lmao 😂

  • D D  (Feb 8, 2019)

    If Thibodeau was coaching the Bucks Giannis' career would've ended already

  • D D  (Feb 9, 2019)

    +King James yeah the defenders definitely beat you up more back then but i think what really matters to basketball players is their joints and I think ball players would rather take beatings than fast pace when it comes to load. I think freak accidents (not sure if I'm using the term correctly but I'm referring to injuries that dont have much to do with fatigue or damage) happen more when the play is physical (like I sprain my ankles more when games get physical and theres more interference), but that'...

  • King James  (Feb 9, 2019)

    +D D I'd agree with the pace. But I don't think the game today is harder on the body. The old game was more physical. "Load management" is a modern concept.

  • Bro G  (Feb 8, 2019)

    Cleveland still the favorites

  • The Bionic Pig  (Feb 15, 2019)

    Bro G facts

  • Hidgy46  (Feb 10, 2019)

    Cleveland still the team to beat ~Tristan Kardashian

  • Mario Jones  (Feb 8, 2019)

  • Lazyfoal 6169091  (Feb 11, 2019)

    +Boois Hoois he's talking about tom thibodeu lol

  • Boois Hoois  (Feb 10, 2019)

    Which one? I don't think any of them look like penguin.

  • Taylor Mchale  (Feb 8, 2019)

    These top 4 teams in the East are top 5 in the NBA.

  • Łeone  (Feb 11, 2019)

    +Not Gary and 4 of the top 5 teams in the nba are in the east bitch

  • Not Gary  (Feb 11, 2019)

    Chris Ellis I'm a sixers fan but the east is just top heavy

  • Arjen Singh  (Feb 8, 2019)

    Bucks or Toronto is coming out of the East. I feel like Boston doesn’t click and The 76ers have no bench.

  • Jason Szumski  (Feb 13, 2019)

    Boston don't click?

  • Jason Tatum  (Feb 11, 2019)

    U must be really dumb if u think Philly not coming out the east

  • Taz J  (Feb 8, 2019)

    Raptors STILL have 4 roster spots to fill...just something to think about!🤷🏾‍♀️🇨🇦
