The free agency moves over the weekend did change the basic structure of the Eastern Conference, with more than one team now looking to have an inside track on the possibility of competing for a shot at the NBA Finals.
It looks as if Chicago, Cleveland, and Indiana will all at least be good enough to challenge for an eastern conference title -- and Miami could certainly be in the mix as well if the final few chips fall their way this offseason.
However, the one thing that hasn't changed is that the Western Conference still has the better crop of teams from top to bottom, and the Eastern Conference still has a long way to go before matching the west in power.
Carmelo didn't move west. LeBron didn't either. Pau Gasol is now in the East. It's time we see the Eastern Conference put forth more than one or two serious competitors for the NBA Championship -- and we could finally have that going into this year.
Has the change in balance in the Eastern Conference made it more appealing to play in NBA 2K15? Do you suspect more big changes are coming to the Eastern Conference this offseason?
