As I see it with Amare's injury the west is left with only San Antonio as a contender, while the east has Detriot, Miami, and Indiana.

A common arguement was that the East didn't have enough dominant big men, but with the additions of Rasheed, Shaq, Howard, Okafor, Bosh, Villanueva?, Bogut, Magloire, Webber, and Jamison(and of course Jerome James) in the last two years I think the east will catch up this year and surpass the west next.

Has the balance of power finally evened out? thoughts?

Absolutely:

East
-Elite:
Pistons
Heat
Pacers
-On the Rise:
Cavs
Bulls
Wizards
Sixers
Nets
Boston?
Bucks?
- Bad/Indifferent/Not so Sure
Hawks
Bobcats
Magic
Knicks
Raptors

West
-Elite:
Spurs
Mavs?
- Good but not great (can't get over the hump):
Suns
Rockets
Nuggets
Grizzlies
- Young and on the rise, but can still be bad now
Warriors
Clippers
-Bad/Indifferent/Downfall/Who Knows?
Hornets
Lakers
Kings
Twolves
Blazers
Jazz

So, that's my crazy inner mind workings/classification system. I don't know if the balance is completely in the East, but I'd say it's more of a balance itself
