West's #9 team didn't make the playoffs. Had Golden State been in East, they would be #4 team and would have home court advantage in the first round.
So basically West has much better teams overall.
But two east teams Boston and Detroit, if any of them make the finals they would have home court advantage over any team coming out of west.
The final should be interesting, nevertheless.
I dislike the Lakers and their fans. Most of them are too cocky. Dislike Kobe. So if they come out from the west then I am not watching the finals. My team Dallas has no prayers against the Ex-Laker Byron Scott's team. Still hopefull for a miracle.
Houston won once when they were #6. So did Miami. Dallas is #7.
