Re: Lakers missing the playoffs will cause a rule change
Threads like this are stupid. And not just because Shady made it (though that is reason enough). This rule change that isn't going to happen wouldn't save the Lakers so even if you buy into the baseless theory that the playoff structure would be altered for the sake of a single team it doesn't matter because the change would be taking place a full season too late. If LA is a real contender they should be able to get one of the 8 best records in their conference. If they aren't good enough to pass Utah we aren't missing anything.
