Will they ever go back to the 5 - 7 - 7 playoff format? Aside from $$$$, is there a justifiable reason for dragging out the playoffs for months?

Money is what matters, it's not going to change.

ive got TWO ideas to make Poffs more interesting:

Idea 1: 16 teams in 14 out looks like TOO Many poff teams for me i would reduce it to 12 teams in the playoffs.

1st round the top 2 of each conference REST while seeds 3 to 6 play a first round at best of 5 .

then we have a second round of best of 5 too.

conference finals and finals best of 7.

Idea 2: we keep the 16 teams but we go on an ESCALATING mode.

first round best of 3 ( pretty nice for the upset possibilities would raise interest in the round)

second round best of 5

conference finals best of 7

FINALS the GREAT BATTLE best of 9!!!!!! more finals games more tv ratings and having to win 5 makes sure the best team wins no matter what.
