come on now... these things are cyclical. in the 80's it was only the rockets or lakers representing the western conference in the finals. seriously think about it... it was only the rockets and lakers reaching the finals out of the west in that whole decade.
there was a time where the celtics had like a decade or more long run of no losses to teams like the Dallas mavericks and Sacramento kings.
remember the bulls? they basically ran roughshod over the whole damn league in the 90's why not just have them as sitting champions in waiting like old chess champions?
the only true way to assess who would be the best overall team would be not to have a playoffs and just do it English Premier League soccer style and whomever has the best record at the end of the year is the champion. that way ever single regular season game becomes a huge war and the spurs would probably end up winning every other year.
