Everyone knows that the West is easily the best conference in the NBA. From top to bottom, not even a competition. But the more interesting race to the championship is probably the East. The East has 3 teams that are supposed to be competing: the Hawks, Cavs, and Bulls. When the season began, there were only two, but as the season went on, the Hawks sprouted as a power and the number 1 seed.
Who is going to prevail? The Chicago Bulls. Derrick Rose is playing like Derrick Rose right now. He played like an MVP last night. Just to go along with one of the best PG's in the league, the Bulls have Jimmy Butler, the rising star SG, and 4 great "Big-Men" in Pau Gasol, Nikola Mirotic, Joakim Noah, and Taj Gibson. Tom Thibodeau has made this team into a defensive power in the league, and you know what they say: Defense wins championships.
