Last year's playoffs were chalky, with the top two seeds in each conference advancing to the conference finals and the top-seeded Warriors beating the Cavaliers -- seeded second in the East -- in the Finals.Before that, the sixth-seeded Nets beat No. 3 Toronto in the Eastern quarterfinals, fifth-seeded Memphis made a run to the Western Conference finals in 2013 and a No. 8 seed has beaten a No. 1 seed in 2012, 2011 and 2007 .LeBron James needs no convincing.His top-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers lost to No. 3 Orlando in the Eastern Conference finals in 2009 and No. 4 Boston in 2010, the infamous series that preceded James' exodus to Miami.Van Gundy also has final say in the front office and has constructed a team similar to the Magic squad that stunned James' Cavs in 2009 .How fun would an Eastern Conference finals between James and the Cavs and Dwyane Wade and the Heat be?
