The theory is that if the two best teams are in the finals, then it's incredibly difficult for a team to win 3 straight, so one of the three games being played away the number one seeded team should be able to win. Whether that's true or not comes down to opinion

It's so they benefit the one with home court advantage when so that can they win on their own floor

Ideally all finals games should be competitive, meaning games go to 6 or 7 games.

If the higher seed wins in 6 or 7 games, it benefits that team, feel better for the team, the crowd is celebrating, and looks better on TV and pictures.

They're going cross conference when the travel's a lot worse. Going East to east isn't as rough as East to West.

2-3-2 is ok, you were good enough to make it to the finals so you shouldn't care about where the game is.

my only problem with 2-3-2 is that casual fans and old people always ask questions and then act like its some sort of completely new and weird concept even though they have already watched the NBA finals for many years

It's to facilitate the press coverage. Too much setup time and cost flying back and forth so many times.

I think it's shit too though, it should be the same format throughout.

Because they are trying to make the Finals as even as possible. You can't figure that out?

It actually favors the home team I was reading on one of the other threads that very few away teams have won the 3 straight home games they get and in that scenario the second best team needs to win 2 away games to get the title
