I don't think the Bulls have any shot of doing anything. In the playoffs, there's just no way DRose can take on a whole team. And there's no way a Rose-less Bulls will beat the Knicks or Heat when everything is on the line. So either way it doesn't look good for them, despite what's happened in the regular season.
The Knicks are the only team that can give the Heat a tough time. They are huge and can light it up from 3. Woodson will need to play JR, Chandler, Amar'e, and Carmelo 24/7 if they want to win. Novak should be putting in at least 30 minutes, too. Their team is so talented it's nuts. Hopefully the rotation tightens up and the starters put in 40+ minutes during the playoffs.
The Western conference is kind of weird this year. I think OKC is ridiculously stupid for not trading Westbrook, but clearly he's a dangerous weapon to have. Durant should be having 40 shots a night and Harden should be getting 20. How Westbrook doesn't average even 10 assists a game with that team just shows how incapable he is at playing point guard. He's only at 5.4 a game!!!!!
As much as I've hated the Spurs in the past, at this point they look like a lock to make it to the finals. Everyone on their team can ball and Parker is distributing instead of being a pure scorer. They seem to shoot over 50% every fucking night.
I think the Knicks or Heat are the only teams capable of making it out of the East. The West could be anyone really, but I think the Spurs are making it probably 60% of the time.
