In terms of travel, the East also has their complaints. When Eastern teams are coming to the West for a 7:30 pm game, it is like playing a 10:30 pm game back home, and ending at 1 am! When a West team goes East for a 7:30 pm game, it is like playing a 4:30 pm game which is equivalent to when they would be at shoot around before a game.
The only time it is bad for a West Coast team is an early day Eastern game like a 12pm or 3pm cause then it's like playing at 9am, lol, but those are much less often (Sundays usually) than the regular everyday of the week 10:30 pm games in the West that a Eastern teams have to endure. That's like the time when their games would be ending.
