If you were to look at both sides of the NBA, meaning the East and the West, you will have to say that the Beast from the East is the most excitable Conference by far in the beginning of this 2010-2011 NBA season.
All you have to do is to look at the stars of this Conference and to remind you of their star-power and marketability factor please have a look at the below listing.
• LeBron James
• Shaquille O’Neal
• Dwight Howard
• Paul Pierce
• Ray Allen
• Rajon Rondo
And that is just to name a few of the biggest Eastern Conference NBA stars on this side of the Mississippi River. The list goes very deep and is obviously one of the most lopsided years that any of us here can recall for NBA-Conference power rating and rankings.
If not for Kobe and the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers the Western Conference would be all but a side-show and a stepping-stone for one of the Eastern Conferences powerhouses to smash through and climb over on their way to the NBA Title.
South Florida Showcase
As we barrel through to the tip-off in South Florida on Tuesday the 26th we all can hold our collective breaths as the start of this NBA season opener will be one that solidifies the naming of the Eastern conference as the attention-grabbers this year. That is atleast to the Finals of the NBA Championship where all bets are off. You see that’s how it goes in the professional ranks regardless of what sport is being played and watched.
To look at the Eastern Conference and to pin-point only a few stars and teams that is in the spotlight would be to do a disservice to the mighty Conference in general.
It is a joint-effort that combines the strength of the biggest star, in terms of marketability and playing rights on the floor, Lebron James, with the teams that are awash with talent across the board. We can have a look at the teams that make up the Eastern Conference right now to cement the fact that this is the side of the Mississippi to watch all year long.
New Jersey Nets
New York Knicks
The trick of this upcoming NBA 2010-2011 season is for the dominant team to rise above the star-gazing issue and focus on putting wins in the right column.
We can all look into our proverbial crystal balls to see which Eastern Conference team will be the last man standing when it comes time to take on the dreaded Lakers and Kobe Bryant but that would be an unworthy gesture and a way to place our foot in our wide-open mouths. Let is just watch and be amazed at the excitement and the athletic prowess of the best athletes in the world, NBA players.
