    Eastern Conference Favorite?

    With more talent seemingly flowing into the West every day, who are the favorites from the right-hand side of the map? Bucks? Sixers? Celtics? Seems like Toronto just got pushed out of the picture. Anyone else have a shot (Indiana, Atlanta)?

    Voted 76ers, but I think the Bucks and Sixers are on about the same level, then Boston and the Pacers, then everyone else.

    I voted Bucks but I feel basically the same way.

    Horford pushes Phila over the top.

    Has to be Philly. Obviously GS had injuries but Philly gave Toronto the best series of anyone in the playoffs.

    It is the 76ers, without a doubt. Of course it all depends on the health of Embiid, which is a 50/50 proposition. Poaching Horford was big because he has the ability to neutralize Embiid.

    The NBA next year is going to be the most evenly competitive and fun season to follow in many years.

    Yup. I could live with putting them in the group with Boston and Indy this season as well. Probably an oversight on my part to not include them initially.

    I selected the Bucks in the poll, but you can't go wrong with either them or Philly, IMO.

    I think the Bucks have to be the favorite at the moment with Philly slightly behind. It will be interesting to see Philly with Horford and without Butler.

    I like the Bucks for now . The Greek Freak plays his best ball against Philly. He seems to get a joy out of abusing Simmons.
