At L-East It’s Competitive

by

Don’t look now, but we’ve got another heated — maybe that’s not exactly the word — playoff race to follow. As of today, March 1, only six games separate the No. 6 seed, Washington, and the No. 12 seed, Milwaukee. Which three teams from the dregs of the league will make the playoffs? You can almost feel the excitement.

In a lot of ways, it’s like watching the inverse of the Western Conference, where five games separate seeds 1-9. Instead of wondering which talented squad will bear the ignominy of having four balls in the lottery, we get to wonder how in the world teams that either (A) are famously mismanaged (Atlanta and Philly), or (B) traded their superstars mid-season (Chicago and NJ) won’t be in Michael Beasley sweepstakes.

Seriously, can you imagine Milwaukee, Indiana, and Atlanta in the playoffs? It’s almost embarrassing.
