    I don't think so, I like this format, it changes a little bit from previous rounds.

    In the end I dont think it matters because the better team almost always win. But I do hate the format.

    Home court in my opinion should be 3-2-2.... It would make home court worth getting. I hate that for having the better record say in the first round when a team like the heat won 60 plus games and a team like the sixers are 500 at best and its only 4-3 In terms of home court.

    What is the difference? If you split the first two games at home and then lose 3 straight on the road you wouldn't win the series anyway.

    HCA should get 5 games while the lower team gets 2?

    I think it just the fact that there are 3 home games in a row for team. I really don't care either way. I just want it changed for continuity reasons.

    Yup... 4-3 is not a big enough prize for teams that dominate and earn the top seed.

    Yeah it is the finals. Usually you have the top teams in the finals. Meaning a 1-5 game difference in final record. Why should a team be given a huge advantage like that because of a couple of games in the regular season?

    i think the main reason for the 2-3-2 format is because of the traveling from east to west and vice versa.

    If you earned the best record in the league in the regular season, I think that should give u an advantage in The Finals as well. Having to go on the road for 3 straight games in an extremely hostile environment is tough on anybody, and i think they should change it to 2-2-1-1-1

    But that is a disadvantage to the home team. How many teams can win 3 in a row at home in the Finals? You pretty much have to get 2 road wins. Also it deceives the team who has the 3 middle games because if they are up 3-2 they still gotta win another game and they have no more home games left.
