The West is weak this year. Think of all the garbage West teams that those playoff teams feast on. LA Clippers, Golden State Warriors, Sac Kings, OKC Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies, Timberwolves, etc. With the Spurs banged up, outside of the Blazers I dont see anybody in the West thats a threat to the Lakers. But Cleveland, Boston, and Orlando all are as good or better than LA. The East is all about bruising half court defense, the West is about rhythm offense. In the playoffs, the game slows down and the scoring is harder to come by. Whoever comes out of the East will win the title.

The west has a team with a winning record that will miss the playoffs. I'll agree that the top 3 in the east are better then the top 3 in the west but overall the west is better. Hell after the top 3 in the east no one would make the playoffs in the west.

Lebron>Kobe at least Lebron and the Cavs can beat the Bobcats, Kobe and the Lakers don't even know how to do that.

Thats funny. That one home loss the Cavs have was against the Lakers and the cavs are 0-2 against the Lakers.

Thats just looking at overall records. Keep in mind those Eastern teams dont get to play the Kings, the Thunders, the Clippers, etc 3-4 times a year. Look at the East record vs. the West this year 231-218. 8 teams in the East (including our Bobcats!!!) have winning records against the West this season! The Cavs are 26-4 against the West! I feel like the West teams are built better for the regular season, and the East teams are better built for the playoffs.

With Bynum back and the Lakers bench I don't know how you can say the Lebrons are a better playoff team than the Lakers. Lamar Odom comes off the bench for the Lakers, pretty deep team.

Sure San Antonio is getting old, so are the Celtics.

Good points and I agree with the east is built for playoffs. Still not sure if anyone can beat the Lakers though. I really want to see Lakers Cavs and i want the Cavs to win so there is a better chance Lebron stays in Cleveland.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—LeBron James expects to rest during Cleveland’s regular-season finale, a well-earned reward for leading the Cavaliers to home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

James scored 37 points as the Cleveland beat the Indiana Pacers 117-109 on Monday night to clinch the league’s best record.

“It’s one step, however, it’s a big step,” James said. “When you consider all the great teams, all the great players, all the great coaches and all the great systems that are in the NBA, for us to finish with the best record is a tremendous feat. And that is something the franchise should be proud of.”

With his team having clinched the top record with a game to spare, coach Mike Brown will likely make James and other key players spectators against Philadelphia—even though it could cost the Cavs a shot at more NBA history.

A win by the Cavaliers on Wednesday would tie them for the NBA record for best home mark, 40-1, set by the Boston Celtics in 1985-86. James isn’t worried about it.

“We’ve got to do what’s best for the ring,” he said. “We’ve got home-court advantage already. We’re not fighting for breaking a record anymore. We’re fighting for that ring.”

And James won’t call his team the favorite for it.

“It’s going to be Boston,” he said. “It goes like that every year. Until you knock off the NBA champs, that’s the team to beat. We worked hard for the regular season to get to the point where we’re at now, the home court. We must serve home in the playoffs like we did in the regular season.”

Monday’s performance likely was James’ last chance to impress voters for the MVP award. He shot 12-for-23 from the field and had five rebounds and five assists. Some fans chanted M-V-P during the fourth quarter.

CLEVELAND -- According to a league source, LeBron James will be named the NBA Most Valuable Player this afternoon.

James has chosen to have the announcement at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron. All his Cavs teammates are expected to be there as well as representatives from Kia, which will give him a new car as part of the honor.

He will be the first Cav to win the honor in history and the second youngest ever to win the award behind Wes Unseld in 1969. James averaged 28.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 7.6 assists this season, his sixth in the NBA.

Two weeks ago James finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting and an upgrade in that area this season plus the Cavs franchise-record 66 wins were compeling to the 123 media voters. The award will be officially announced later today and he will be honored before the Cavs play the Hawks in Game 1 on the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday. Traditionally, NBA Commissioner David Stern is on hand to present the Maurice Podoloff Trophy in front the fans.

Lebron is the MVP.

Some of those shots in that video were lucky.

The Cavs will never see the greatness that they have prospered after Lebron leaves.

Jay-Z is going to make alot of money in the next 10 years.
