    @Bob the east is a joke. It makes me laugh that a depleted OKC can maintain a better record in the tough western conference than the Pacers or the Heat in the terrible eastern conference.

  2. Casray says:

    East can’t do nothing. West will win again for the 4th time.

  3. wew says:

  4. Bob says:

    Hey and dustydreamnz or whatever your name is Don’t you ever talk about the East, you’ve seen LeBron’s magic, the finals is probably going to be OKC Thunder and Miami Heat okay!

  5. Bob says:

    LeBron is the bomb man, he will so beat the mamba, KD, Aldridge, and everybody who gets in his way!

  6. dustydreamnz says:
