As we gear up for the playoffs - the "real" NBA season - I think once again of the same old question: what did the regular season really teach us about who the best teams are? Before the '13-'14 regular season began, I figured it was likely that Miami would win the Eastern Conference Finals, and probably be the slight favorite to win the Finals.
I figured out west that OKC was probably the slight favorite to win the Western Conference Finals, but that the Clippers, Spurs and maybe even Houston would be serious contenders as well.
And that still looks to be the case. Despite showing us many small details, the '13-'14 regular season clarified nothing as to who truly the best teams are. The playoffs will show us the truth. It should be fun to watch.
