Who comes out of the East? 

Post#1 » by LakersSoul » Wed Apr 7, 2021 4:41 pm

Similar to the West, we have about 5-6 weeks of RS left before the playoffs start. Considering the health of the teams, who do you have making the Finals from the East? And why?

The Nets. They are tied for #1 in the East with Durant now out 2+ months, going 21-6 without him :crazy:

No matter who comes out, it is going to be the best postseason in the East since forever, with multiple MVP caliber players on different teams (assuming health).

Nets smoke everyone in the east. Maybe a series could go 5 games but nothing more

OP lists 5 teams and doesn't include the team currently sitting in the #4 seed.

Sad.

Do you think they would be favorites against Philly, Brooklyn, Milwaukee or Miami?

I have all 4 of those teams at least a tier ahead of Atlanta.

Definitely not the first three and probably not Miami either, but 100% they would be favored over overrated Boston and their 2 so called all stars. yet Boston is a poll option.

I agree with Boston. I would put them in the same tier as Atlanta right now but I wouldn't include Boston or Atlanta in the poll.

I cant see Atlanta beat 3 of Philly, Brooklyn, Milwaukee and Miami en route to the finals.

Nets are absolutely stacked and there isn't one single team that can beat them in a 7 games series.

PS why are they celtics even an option they are terrible.

Can't argue with that. My only gripe was seeing Boston as an option and not ATL.
