The Spurs sweeping-up the Cavs in the FINALS says more than a team beating another team. It says the Eastern Conference Teams this season were just plain ole weak when comparing them to any of the Western Conference Teams.
If the above is somewhat true than the Knicks 33 WIN season with so-call Star(money)Player$ Marbury, Francis, and Curry on their roster had to be the Pit-Fall of reason why the conference is so WEAK. Why Blame the Knicks for the Conference? easy!
Each offseason and before the trading deadline NBA teams build their roster to be able to compete against the Top-5 Teams in the league. Was Kobe Bryant Lakers one of the top teams in the league? NO! so how did Lebron James Cavs make it to the FINALS? when Lebron Cavs Roster is so simular to that of Kobe Lakers roster.
Better Example: All the Western Conference Teams that LOST in the first round had a better chance of beating the Cavs in a seven game series.
No Eastern Conference Team found the Highest Paid Roster Team the Knicks a threat at any time this season (No Respect!)...<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
