    The East playoffs are going to be fun this year. There’s 5 teams that could legitimately win the conference

  • Julian Grasso  (Jan 16, 2019))

    +oX Poo Xo I'll give you this about the pacers tho however. The pacers don't have the talent as any of the other top 4 teams, but they play the hardest every game of those 5 teams which is why they can sneak their way in to the mix. So they true dark horses tho I'll give you that

  • Julian Grasso  (Jan 16, 2019))

    +oX Poo Xo and Boston destroyed the pacers by almost 30 lol

  • Loon K. Do  (Jan 10, 2019))

    Toronto vs. Bucks for Eastern Finals. Calling it now

  • Loon K. Do  (Jan 13, 2019))

    Asmosis Jones I could see an upset with bucks. It’ll be fun to watch

  • Asmosis Jones  (Jan 13, 2019))

    2 best records in the nba?..what a limb your standing on pacers Celtics 76ers are look flawed compared to them for sure..Toronto looks poised to win the east..i would be shocked if they didn't and if the bucks lost in the 2nd round..

  • toxicbullets237  (Jan 10, 2019))

    Bucks topic but I only talk about Boston... Nice

  • ReTheMi  (Feb 2, 2019))

    Umm, “Are Celtics the biggest threat to the Bucks” sounds like a Celtic topic to me

  • A. Love  (Jan 25, 2019))

    Welcome to ESPN's First Take. smh

  • Patricia G  (Jan 10, 2019))

    Raptors have had a league leading 14 different starting lineups this year. They've played 1 game this year with their entire squad. They still have the best record in the NBA. Kawhi and the Raptors are going to the Finals.

  • Michael Oates  (Jan 15, 2019))

    Actually it’s Heat with lineup changes have most

  • Rodney Davis  (Jan 14, 2019))

    It will be Bucks vs Raptors in the finals. Mark my words.

  • Refund HD  (Jan 10, 2019))

    Celtics have the most talented team in the conference but are still trying to put it all togetherSixers have the most high end talent in the conference 3 legitimate allstars but lack bench depthBucks have 1 great player surrounded by shooting and a great coach Pacers dont have enough high end talent to be considered a serious threat Raptors have the best combination of star talent and depth All teams can win the East except the Pacers imo

  • Aj Martin  (Jan 12, 2019))

    The 76ers bench is decent they just don’t show up all the time gotGood pieces tho and jimmy could lowkey put them over the top cause there a lot of pressure off Ben now

  • Dustin Bishop  (Jan 12, 2019))

    @Natanael Mercado Sabonis plays with a top ten usage player in Oladipo. The Pacers play at a slower pace than the Celtics. Bottom line: Sabonis does more with less touches in an inferior system than Horford does this year. If you switched their roles this year Sabonis is an All-Star.

  • max johnson  (Jan 10, 2019))

    Celtics are overrated. They're not going anywhere

  • S. C.  (Jan 15, 2019))

    +Jared McGorman you guys just lost to the brooklyn nets lmaoo. the celtics have too many egos to win. tatum, kyrie, brown and rozier all trying to be the main guy is already costing them wins.

  • Jared McGorman  (Jan 14, 2019))

  • RonBoss_08  (Jan 10, 2019))

  • Samuel future goat  (Jan 11, 2019))

    RonBoss_08 BIG facts people just want to bash kyrie for leaving lebron and max just mad that kyrie made him look dumb on the interview molly probley doesn't even watch the games and talk in the past Stephen A knows the facts about kyrie this season and as u can see kyrie is almost averaging 7 assists kyrie is trying to be a leader and it's only January

    Mans barely talked about the Bucks the disrespect is real

  • KING DROOPY  (Jan 10, 2019))

    The disrespect for the Raptors and Kawhi is real

  • Brett  (Jan 11, 2019))

    +Tasos M. He's arguably the best player in the east, and the best 1 on 1 defender in the league. Quit disrespecting.... Not to mention he's a finals MVP...

  • Fatima AL-Enizi  (Jan 11, 2019))

    +dabuilder - We did not have a superstar of the calibre of Kawhi Leonard last year. That is the main difference.

  • rupiny jude  (Jan 10, 2019))
