Ever since the acquisition of LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and the re-signing of Dwyane Wade in the summer of 2010, the Miami Heat have ruled the Eastern Conference. Miami has won the Eastern Conference three seasons in a row, and have won the NBA Championship each of the last two seasons, however it’s time to look at which teams have the chance to take down the Heat and represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals this season. Chicago Bulls: The Bulls are finally healthy again.  On Tuesday, Derrick Rose will play in his first meaningful game since Game 1 … Continued
