Which is more embarrassing? Circumstance 1 or Circumstance 2


Circumstance 1)
Working sooo hard all year for Homecourt Advantage and losing in Game 7 @ Home with it?


Circumstance 2)
Getting swept in a series when you are a legit championship contender?

getting swept.

at least in the other scenario you had a chance to win it before elimination.

both are pretty bad but I'd say getting swept.

Swept for sure, if a series goes to a Game 7, usually means it was a pretty even series, so Game 7 theoretically could go either way.

Being swept is a humiliation.

Swept, if it goes to 7 and you lose, it just shows both were quality teams. Being swept shows that you didn't belong.

Swept. In both cases you are throwing away home court advantage, and being swept is just a much more embarrassing way of doing that.

Has a legit contender ever been swept? Besides teams that ran into injuries that is. I don't know how legit a contender would actually be the get swept in the playoffs.

losing a series is tough, home or road, but getting swept, no matter the situation is embarrasing, especially if you're supposed to be a contender.

Number 2 easily. Getting swept + a championship contender. Nuh uh.

In Circunstance #2 you could be the team with the inferior record. You could still be a title team and contender though.
Example - A team that wins 63 games is Team A while a Team that wins 57 Games is team B.
If Team B gets swept it isn't as big a deal.

However let's reverse it. Let's say Team A wins 61 games and Team B wins 56 games. Team A loses Game 7 at home.
