I repeat, an "idea"!

I'm aware that this won't ever happen, and I don't know if I'd even want it to happen but whatever.

What if we just eliminated the NBA playoffs entirely. Just think about it... That essentially makes it 82 playoff games for every single team. It makes every team play their heart out, and play for the championship every single game. It would eliminate the 'coasting' that goes on toward the end of the regular season and allow for every team to at least feel as a part of the competition.

Again, I'm completely aware this wouldn't happen, but I think it's kind of an interesting idea to discuss. Thoughts?

Yeah lets get rid of the NFL playoffs too. That will prevent the Colts from resting their starters

No, won't happen. The playoffs are probably the most entertaining thing in the NBA, why would you get rid of it?

We should get rid of the regular season too so players won't skip summer league.

I get where you are coming from, but the playoffs are like a reward for the regular season, and then it starts 0-0 all over again. If we did the system you are suggesting, you wouldn't have Philly fans going crazy right now, and Memphis fans getting excited, etc. The playoffs are another season basically, where fan bases can get rabid even if they were 10 games back to end the season. Because its 0-0 now. Anything can happen.

I LOVE the NBA playoffs. Fans and players go crazy, and its when we get to see who the real stars are.

if anything you could shorten the season by 30 or so games to create a larger sense of urgency to win and prevent coasting, each game means so much more that way, and then the playoffs would not feel so far away for some...i think this is a much more feasible and reasonable scenario....why eliminate the best part of the nba? itd be like college football, but worse...

Sorry man but this is just an awful idea. Why take away the most exciting part of the season? With a month left in the year there would be like 4 teams competing for the win. Right now there are 16 teams left who still have hopes for a title.

So regular season wins you a championship? As a Mavs fan, I love that idea. Lol

I think you've missed the forest for the trees.

Unwelcome ideas often produce unwelcome responses.

Also, you do realize that your idea--counterfactually, at least--would grant LeBron 2 rings. I doubt the rest of PSD would like that idea all that much.

maybe if the conferences and divisions had equal talent

what about tie breakers??

also, mid-season trades would mean much much less to the teams who need talent... if you suck the 1st 20 games, the season is lost...

BCS system??

too many holes in your system to make it work IMO

nice idea you have, but it wouldn't be fair for every team.

The top teams get to face each other a maximum of 7 times, I would much rather see that than teams facing below .500 teams throughout. The playoffs are where legends are born, dynasties created. The best games in the league are played in the postseason. The atmosphere is much, much better and much more intense.

The best regular season wins the championship? I don't quite understand.

You had to have known this Idea would have got bashed. I love the best of 7 tournament that the playoffs bring. No way anyone would want to get rid of it.
