So the Lakers need to play in the Eastern Conference. They have 2 wins this season against the Eastern Conference in 2 games. That’s a 1.000 winning percentage. Yeah, that goes to show you how good the East actually is. The Lakers are winless against the Western Conference teams and they have lost those 9 games by a combined 120 points.
Yeah, it’s not pretty.
Alas, with every win against an Eastern Conference team, the questions arise. How are there 8 teams in the East worthy of a playoff spot?
There just isn’t. Take the top 3, maybe 4 teams from the East and then let’s take the top 12 from the West. It would make the playoffs so much better!
