Default Re: Should the NBA Playoffs be best 16 records, regardless of conference

no... what then would be the motivation for a team like atlanta, new jersey or toronto to keep playing? you'd have had teams tanking for 3 months now if the playoffs were the top 16 overall....

right now a team like toronto (just an example raptors fans) feels they may be that one player away from competing in the east as a top 4 team, in a top 16 format suddenly they are in fact 2 players away from even making the playoffs alone, and probably 3 away from making any noise if they got there and forget about being one of the two finalists...



it will balance out slowly but surely, you have 4 good teams in the east now and a couple others that are one or two players away from being contenders...
