    run.....the Celtics are 12-4 vs winning teams this season....the Lakers are 4-8

    the Celtics are 16-3 vs losing teams,,,,the Lakers are 22-3

    we have played 16 games against winning teams....the Lakers have played 12

    we have the better record

    All the teams play 82 games. The strength of teams changes every couple of years due to FA and trades. It has nothing to do with scheduling.

    The only problems come when a team like the Lakers can play 21 of the first 34 games at home or not have many back to back games. The C's have a nice home stretch right now so in the end I suppose it all works itself out pretty fairly.

    Duke,
    You take a look at the math, 9 teams count them in the East have sub 500 records and Boston will play them 4 times this year each. Only 4 teams out West have sub 500 records so the Lakers only play 16 games against sub 500 teams all season.

    Plus the Western team beat the Eastern Teams 55-45 when playing head to head. So having a better then 500 record is much more difficult in the West as they play each other 4 times ,knocking each other off.

    Face the facts Jack, Boston plays a cup cake schedule!!!

    Run

    Hi Bias

    So you think playing 2/3 of your games against sub 500 teams is the same as playing 1/3 of your games against 500 teams???

    Give me a break, the East is a joke and Boston plays a easy easy schedule.

    Run

    Hello P34

    I guess it is easier to pretend to not hear the Truth, then it is to defend the un -defendable.

     Like former President Bush, you hear what you want to hear and block out anything that you don't agree with.

    Face it Boston does play an easy schedule,not their fault but still an easy schedule.

    Take care Run

    Well what are you going to do restructure the entire league because some teams are worse than others in a conf??

    When the teams in one conf are weaker and you play those teams 4 to 5 times a year that is where you are seeing the difference. East teams only play West teams twice a year.

    You can go by conference to support your theory but how does it defend the Celtics records vs. the West? 

    Move along please.

    C's have lost to Dallas out West and have not played the Lakers or Spurs away, so lets wait and see what happens.

    run.....please....what do you not get about 12-4 (.750) vs 4-8 (.333)...?

    the Celtics are beating the winning teams.....the Lakers are losing...

    We lost in Dallas on the 2nd game of back to backs....by 2 points and we missed a winning shot at the buzzer!!!

    the Lakers get to feast on the Clippers and Kings every year...The Celtics beat Miami twice while the Lakers were crushed by them at home....

    we beat San Antonio (at home on their back to back....still a huge win....no?)

    and we have an International player with promise IErden) and a high energy guy that reminds me of a young Cowens (Harangoty)....

    what's not to like....?

    Re: C's Play Weak Schedule 50 games against sub 500 teams.

    The Lakers to date have had the easiest schedule in the league.  Their record has even them concerned.  The Celtics have had more back to backs and games against winning teams.  They also have two wins against the Heat. How did the Lakers do?   We'll see how the Lakers do the rest of the way, but from the looks of it they are going to attempt to be bailed out by the league or not even get into the finals.

    I also really question your facts about which conference is easier.  The Heat, Magic, Celtics, Bulls, Knicks, Bucks when they get healthy, and the 76'ers and Nets are vastly improved.  The records in the west amongst the worst teams are very bad.  Coming out of the east to the finals will be much harder.

    If the C's have a winning record have a winning record versus winning teams, winning teams in the West, and the West overall doesn't that mean that they would be a winning team in the west? Your arguement does not apply to the cream of league like the Celtics. It is more the mediocore teams in the East benefit from the weaker confernce. If the C's were a 5-6 team that would make sense.

    This kid knows nothing about basketball. How exactly can you play more elite teams than sub .500/.500 teams? Lmaooooo That'd be a contradiction in terms. We actually have a stronger conference than years past (Mia, Orl,Chi are all very good teams). Splitting it up won't do much b/c the same teams will end up with the best records.Good try though.

    Re: C's Play Weak Schedule 50 games against sub 500 teams.

    What I would do is to make one nationwide league. Each team plays every other team twice (home and away), resulting in a 62-game season with a schedule that is the same for everyone (in  terms of opponents played). So more travel, but fewer games to get injured. It would be the fairest scenario. The best 8 (or 16) teams would go to the playoffs. Simple.

    Of course it will never happen....

    If you're going to get into what teams are sub 500, and who plays them how often.  You then have to look at who those sub 500 teams play and how difficult their schedules are.

    Thank you Runrun for making another very weak post since it allows all of us true Celtic fans to respond with devastating clarity just how foolish you are. We welcome the opportunity to respond to such foolishness. Wait ...I just thought of something....you are a plant making stupid posts on purpose just so the response will be so overwhelmingly obvious that you are wrong again...if that is true then ...

    Please at the end of the year ad up the games and you will find out that they will have a 80% wiining record against the East and maybe a 60% record against the West. Facts don't lie,look at last years record same thing. If LA played in the East last year they would have won 72 games.

    [QUOTE]first he complained we play no foreign players and no white players. That argument is now gone so he is now complaining about the schedule. He is no Celtics fan just an idiot. Just ignore him.
    Posted by DFURY13[/QUOTE]  Actually, it is interesting how few white players there are in the league, and out of the white players there actually are, how many come from Europe.  Just saying, at a normal company, that level of disparity of one ethnic group disproportionately represented would have everyone screaming and the EEOC all over them.  It seems that some white people are very good at basketball, just lately less and less from the US, it appears you have to be from Germany, Spain, or Canada to play basketball if you happen to be White.   You don't have to jump all over me if you disagree, I'm just pointing out what appears to be factually obvious about the NBA.

    [QUOTE]The Boston Celtics play a very easy schedule this year. They will play 50 games against sub 500 teams out of a 82 game schedule. The Lakers play only 30 sub 500 teams in there 82 game season. How can anyone say this is fair?? Playing in the East, Boston plays a cup cake schedule,9 teams in the Eastern conference have sub 500 records,only 4 teams out West have sub 500 records. It is time for a conference shake up,the Western conference teams are far superior to the Eastern conference teams. Lets move some teams around,maybe put Dallas and Denver into the East and moving Milwaukee and Detroit to the West. Either move teams or play an even schedule,maybe play every team 2-3 times a year. The Western teams have been better for a long long time and it is not fair! Western teams became better 10 years ago as Western teams drafted international players and played a faster up-tempo style game. Lets go Stern fix the problem,make the schedules even and fair! Run
    Posted by runrunandrun[/QUOTE]
    You must be new to following the NBA. Both of your suggestions fall under the heading of, 'Been there, done that'! Both Milwaukee and Detroit were once in the Western Conference. Plus, the NBA had a balanced schedule for decades. The Lakers and Celtics once played each other 8 times a year in the 50s and 60s. Up until s few years ago, each team played every other team 4 times a year. Competitive imbalance [the East was much stronger than the West in those days] and travel considerations [2 or 3 six or seven game Western or Eastern swings per team BEFORE private air travel for teams] necessitated the changes. Competitive balance comes and goes. Is the West slightly stronger overall, yes. But, the East has 4 to 5 quality teams, [Bos, Mia, Orl, maybe Atl, and Chic] while the West has 3 or 4 [LA, Dallas, SA, maybe OKC], so what's your point?

    how about this.
    look at the lakers division and the celtics division.
    at least we have another team above .500 in outs. (the knicks) LAL have a weaker division then us.

    Re: C's Play Weak Schedule 50 games against sub 500 teams.

    part of the reason there are more sub 500 teams in the east is that there are more higher level teams gobbling up wins.  When you have boston, miami, orlando, atlanta, and now chicago playing well, then that means you have a few teams with a lot of wins and a lot of teams with few wins.  True, the west is more balanced.
