The Portland Trail Blazers may have a 15-3 record and sit atop the Western Conference, but they want more, and they apparently think changing conferences will do the trick.
The Blazers, or at least the guy who runs the team’s Twitter account, took to the social media site Wednesday afternoon to fire off a zinger at the Eastern Conference and all of its teams.
Is it too late to join the Eastern Conference? Asking for a friend.—

There’s really been no questioning the West’s superiority to the East this season. Just two Eastern Conference teams have records of better than .500, while 10 teams out West have winning records. Additionally, there are five teams below .500 in the East’s top eight, while there are four teams .500 or better outside of the current Western Conference playoff picture.
Still, the joke would have probably been better-served had it been delivered by a team like Minnesota, who sits 13th in the Western Conference but would have the fourth-best record in the East.
Nonetheless, it’s well played by the Blazers.
