NBA PLAYOFFS - should rules be changed?
« on: March 06, 2008, 08:28:08 AM »

such as :
if your conference can't field 8 .500+ teams and the other can,  the 9th(or whatever applies) seed from that conference replaces your 8th seed.. (and so on)

Best sixteen teams in the NBA, regardless of division or conference, seeded accordingly.

uh...no!

Free agency allows the East to get the players they need to compete against the West.  Why it hasn't happened
is beyond me.

I'd be fine with that too. I also think the regular season schedule should be adjusted so that instead of playing teams in your conference 4x/year and non-conference teams 2x/year, each team should play each team 3x/year.

Teams like Boston and Detroit, good though they might be, have (IMHO) artificially inflated win/loss records because they play in the East.

Extend the season to 87 games.  Each team plays all the other teams 3 times.  Then take the top 16 teams for a playoff.

Agree with Teed.

You have to play a balanced schedule. If the West is so tough, then a .400 team may be (probably is) better than a >.500 team from the East.

I have no problems putting the best 16 in the playoffs but there will always be issues if you try and do it in the context of Divisions and Conferences.

Plus it's all cyclical. 10 years from now we'll probably be having the discussion that the East is too tough and the West sucks.

How about reducing the regular season? Nobody would go for it because it means less $ but how about home-and-home against everyone for a 58 game regular season.

Then the friggin' playoffs wouldn't reach into June when even NBA fans don't give a *feces* anymore.
