Least of the East

The Milwaukee Bucks currently reside in second place in their division. The Phoenix Suns should be worried when they come to visit US Airways Center, right? Not exactly. You see, the Bucks – led by young ballers Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova – are in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, where every team, aside from the Cleveland Cavaliers, sports a losing record. The third-place team, the Chicago Bulls, just canned their head coach.

Kind of reminds us of the old NFC West days.
