With the playoffs looming, I thought now would be an opportune time to find out how Magic fans feel about the competition in the Eastern conference. I was originally thinking of doing a post pertaining to playoff seeding, but that issue can be confounded by the "who-will-beat-who" discussion, so I think the following question is more easily addressed: Which Eastern conference team would it be nice to avoid in the playoffs?
I've included all of the Eastern conference teams that are playoff eligible at this time as options, even though the probability that we will face some of them is very low. As usual, you can defend your choice in the comments below. I am going to refrain from defining the discussion further to try and avoid biasing the poll results.
