They are only 2 back. If by some chance they pass us, then the Pistons will become 4th seed and have to face either Miami, Washington or Chicago in the 1st round. I think at this point it is fair to say that there are 5 1/2 (Toronto is only a half) pretty darn good teams in the East. If you look at the West you really only 5 good teams no more than the East. Phoenix got a good ole whipping again last night. I got the feeling that either Dallas or San Antonio is going to represent the West in the finals. That of course is not particularly enlightening to any casual basketball fans. I hope this post is not premature. I apologize if it is. For those that don't appreciate or like the humor in this post, a refund will be handed out during free agency time.
