Record of 8 combined Eastern conference playoff teams: 376 - 251

Record of 8 combined Western conference playoff teams: 403 - 223

This is just more evidence of why they call the Eastern conference the LEASTERN conference. If the LAKERS played in the eastern conference, they would clinch a playoff spot in early December. Laughing You celtic fans crying and making EXCUSES should be ashamed of yourselves considering what conference you guys are in. It is an absolute cakewalk over there.
