Mark Cuban: ‘The East Looks Like The Tougher Conference Right Now’
We are only 3 weeks into the NBA season, but one thing is obvious: The East isn't a kicking pole for the West this year.
Many aren't willing to admit the tide is changing, but the proof is in the pudding: the East has more teams with a winning record.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has sensed a change in tide and was the first owner to speak up on the matter this weekend.
From the Dallas Morning News:
Going into Saturday’s games, only three teams in the Western Conference were more than a game above .500.
Seven teams in the East were more than a game better than .500.
“Let’s just hope it stays that way,” Cuban said before the Mavericks played Houston. “It’s a crazy season so far. I don’t think anything’s gone according to Hoyle so far, except maybe for the (Golden State) Warriors. The East looks like the tougher conference right now. And that’s a good thing. I’m really, really hoping the East becomes a powerful force and the West becomes like the East has been.”
