Default Let's Be Honest, the Heat are Lucky to Play in the East

All they have to go through are the senior Celtics, Rose-less Bulls, Melo-less Knicks, Granger-less Pacers, and a team where Joe chucking Johnson is your best player.

The Heat are lucky to play in the East. The Clippers, Grizzlies and Spurs would all dominate them in a 7 game series in the playoffs. Hell even the Mavs might take them in 7.

Correct, because the Heat would be destroyed in at most 5, maybe 6 games if the refs decide to screw the other team over.

Heat still beat OKC though. Lebron shits on Sefolosha/Durant. Plus they'll still be playing 4 vs 5 with Perkins out there.

You're basing this off what? early season games where nobody is playing near their full potential?

The Heat would run ammuck on most of those teams defenses. The East is where real defense is played, and the West is where the best offenses are. Has been that way for years, and likely will be for plenty more.

Let's be honest, the Heat will never get credit for any of their championships due to the overwhelming hatred against them.

Every game they've played head to head the Heat have had huge disadvantages and problems. All those teams have great perimeter defenders, guys like Tony Allen, Bledsoe, SJax, Lenard and penetrating guards like Chris Paul, Conley, Tony Parker and Ginobli who just get in the lane at will. Throw in all of their monstrous bigs who just toy around with Bosh and Anthony and it's not even close.

You're from Masachusetts, a Gortat fan by the looks of it, but you're a Heat fan. Get your mind right, bandwagoner.

And I think Memphis and SA can go 7 games with Miami easily. Easily.

Absolutely, Heat benefited in the playoffs due to the lack of great teams in the east. Just look at last season's playoffs.
Who were in the east?

Knicks of last season
Pacers with no superstar
Bulls with no Rose
Celtics with injuries and old team
Magic with no Dwight
who else, Sixers?

if they were in the west they'd had to fight through every playoff series, not just cake walk into the conference finals.
