Hell, I have been hearing more about Boston and Philly than Milwaukee and Toronto which is just crazy.
You're kidding right? Just about everyone has the Bucks coming out of the East. TV segments like ''Who's the biggest threat to the Bucks?" doesn't mean they're picking someone but the Bucks to win the East.
The Bucks are heavy favorites to come out of the East and rightly so. They are no fools gold to me. A team lead by arguably the best player in the league and one of the best coaches in the league deserves to be talked about in high regard.
You are right about Philly though, they have no business being mentioned in the same breath as the Bucks, Raptors, and Celtics. But the media keeps pushing this narrative of ''Healthy Simmons & Embiid are gonna lead philly to the promised land''. They've been trash all season with those two healthy so don't know why they'll make a difference all of the sudden.
