So just to be clear here: You're a treadmill team if you don't win a title? Is that the standard now? Because if so that's a dumb standard and I've got news, there's a good chance we won't clear that hurdle either.

The West may still have the perceived 3-4 best teams, but the East is not like it used to be.

Not to freak anyone out, but there is only 3 games currently between the 11th seed Boston and the 6th Seed(Cavs)

It's going to be a dogfight for the 5-10 seeds

Yeah really only teams "eliminated" in the East are Detroit and Orlando. Pacers just about there too. Hawks are struggling but too talented to count out. Every game kind of matters.

To your point about competitiveness, if Chicago loses, which seems pretty plausible right now and Cavs win... Cavs are only 3.5 games behind for the one seed.

LaVine out for the rest of the game tonight with a knee injury. Not sure how serious but something to watch both for the Cavs-Bulls game next week and for the rest of the season in general.
