It's 2018 now and at least some of the younger talent from a few years ago has matured into good players. Plus, this season has had the most parity in the league we've seen in years. For the first time in forever, there's 3+ realistic teams that could reach the Finals in either conference. Hasn't been that way since like '08.
I agree this year has been an improvement over the past few. These playoffs have been really good so far, and it seems like we will finally have a non Lebron team coming out of the East.
