Default My Playoff Idea

To counter imbalance and create the fairest possible playoff scenario here is what I propose (I read Bill Simmons and this is different).

Crossover first round (Best of five, 2-2-1).

East plays West, for example:
1 East vs 8 West
1 West vs 8 East
2 East vs 7 West
etc...

Second round: reseed the remaining teams based on record

1 vs 8
2 vs 7

etc...

Semi finals: based on second round bracket

Finals: Likely the two best teams

Yay!

you love Bob Barker.:

travellin gis the most overrated thing. All the teams have private jets or charters, travelling is hardly a drama.

what I forgot to add is that the first round will be five games

2-2-1

this would ease the travel when compared to 2-2-1-1-1

I agree that the 1st round should be shortened.

As for my avatar, I wouldn't mind changing it to something else, but Bob's kinda what I'm well known for. Why mess with glorious success?

only problem i see is that if the west is so much better than the east, in theory you could have almost all the east coast teams eliminated in the first round... how about instead you take all the teams and rank then 1 to 16 then 1 plays 16, 2 plays 15 and so on...

I dont see a real problem with that...It is all about getting better match ups every round, increasing drama, not having everything fall to shiiit after game four of the Suns Spurs series, and forcing us to labor through crap Eastern Conference games every second night.

That's the best and fairest solution. After all, isn't it annoying that legendary teams of the past (and present) never played in the NBA Finals because they were from the same conference (e.g, Lakers vs Bucks in 1972)?
