Another name synonymous for the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association(NBA) that is ridiculed by the Western Conference for their subpar team records and easy path to the NBA Finals every year. The conference is often plagued with the lack of talent and often top-heavy records that allows the same teams such as the 2010-14 Miami Heat to reach the NBA Finals year to year with minimal or no real competition. The disparity is often attributed to Michael Jordan's second retirement from the Chicago Bulls in 1998.
Joe: Did you hear that the Miami Heat went to four straight finals? Now that's an impressive feat only done three times before.

Miller: Yeah, but they play in the Leastern Conference so it's not that impressive with how easy they had it out there. Now had they gone to four straight finals in the Western Conference that would be no doubt an impressive feat. Just look at the 9th seed 2013-14 Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference, they would have been a 3rd seed in the Leastern Conference.

Joe: When you put it like that I guess you're right.
