Omaha Piston

Is the East caught in a never ending cycle?

Recommended Posts

This might be silly but I was thinking recently of the disparity between the East and the West. One theory I have is that at some point (early 00's?) the East got stuck I a patter of having 4 teams that were generally good and the rest were piss poor. Teams under .500 making the playoffs. The West meanwhile was having .500+ teams sit at home and thus having spots in the lottery. To this day the West has teams 10 games over .500 that might be in the lottery. Meanwhile the teams in the East (perhaps our Pistons) sneak into the playoffs with a crappy record, get rewarded by getting to play the Heat and then drop all the way to the middle of the first round - year after year after year. And the West just gets tougher by having teams that are already pretty damn good in the lottery. Last year the Bucks finished 38-44 yet drafted behind the Mavs and the Jazz who had much better records.
