Balance of power shifts even more to the West
I was too bummed out from the Celtics not getting a top two pick in the draft to really think about WHO was getting the top picks.
Both Seattle and Portland are Western conference teams, and they will be getting franchise players Greg Oden and Kevin Durant.
This is not good for the NBA, as many already believe that the true NBA Finals are actually the Western Conference CHampionships (well, except maybe even this year where the Suns/Spurs serious could be the real championship).
The NBA Finals will become as laughable as the Super Bowl used to be during the NFC domination era.

Oden and Durant will also be playing their games at ten at night, when most Eatern US fans won't be watching.
