This actually shows the West as the superior conference. Miami gets up to play teams in the West. Miami loses to Washington, Detroit, Milwaukee etc. because they don't care.

Western Conference

I always say if Miami gets through the East or ECF, the championship is most likely theirs.

Lets look at the best teams in the West:

Spurs- Regular season juggernaut. Early playoff exits 3 years running.
Thunder- Definitely lost a step after trading Harden
Clippers- Have been nothing special at all lately. Not enough to beat Miami
Nuggets- No superstar player to take over.
Memphis- Only team in the west that matches up well with Miami. But they aint making the Finals.
Lakers- Might not even make the playoffs. Don't play any defense at all.


Like I said, its a cupcake conference. There is a reason why Miami plays the west better than the east.
LMAO.. as supposed to the east?
Knicks- have yet to won anything with Melo. Amare injured, big men injured.
Bulls- No Rose, Noah with injuries, lost Asik
Boston- Lose Rondo, KG and Pierce are old
Hawks- no superstars
Pacers- no superstars
Nets- nothing special
Bucks-nothing special
other superstars all injured, or playing in the west

who the hell is in the east?
if the west is cupcakes, then the east is what, kleenex?

if the heat is in the west and have to go through those teams.. the likelyhood of lebron choking and losing a series is almost 99.9%.
look at the one time they faced a West team that is not filled with 23 year olds.

This.

West teams are all offense and no defense with the exception of a few teams and the East is the other way around.

You should consider Kobe lucky if the heat were in the west Kobe would be lebrons bi1tch 2 more times per season with another 4 times in the playoffs if they met.

this is interesting, because how much of it is due to better defensive teams being in the east or due teams sucking on offense. I think historically over the last decade the East has been short changed in the comparison because it is ignored that even low seeded East playoff teams play a style that is accustomed to playoffs success.

The Past few East champs had a harder time in the earlier rounds compared to the best the West can offer

2012 - Heat had a tougher time with Boston/Indiana
2008 - Celtics had a tougher time in the first 3 rounds
2006 - Heat/Pistons classic ECF
2004 - Pistons had tougher go vs. the bucks and pacers

The above might not mean much because there were obvious seasons where the same could be said about the West champ but I do find it interesting how consistent it has been.

Also if we want to compare across seeds i think it is more even than people think,

Miami/SA - slight edge to Mia

Indy/OKC - OKC would be the fav but i think Indy is a lot closer than people think

NY/Den - if both are healthy i think Den is better but in a playoff series I think NY star power gives them an edge

BK/LAC - not a believer in either team but I think BK can grind out more games down the stretch.

Chi/Mem - actually would be an interesting series to watch, probably the two best frontcourts

Atl/GS - I think this is the only matchup where the West has a clear advantage

Bos/Hou - Right now Hou, but I would take the C's with KG playing in a playoff series

Mil/Uta - looks pretty even if you ask me

Default Re: Heat own Western Conference teams

Lets be clear

Miami are best suited vs west teams due to the style of play and the way those teams play defense compared to the east. Its about match-ups..obviously most west teams would destroy everybody else in the east though.

Miami are just a harder match-up for those offensive paced teams.
