Would it be a good idea to have the teams that lose in the western and eastern conference play against each other for the title of third place in the league? it would only be one game and not a full series. just curious to see what the thoughts are around the forum

I don't think so. You would then have to give a trophy to 2nd and 3rd places or some crap. It's exactly how it should be, just in like every other of the major 4 team sports.

1 winner, lots of losers.

Championship or bust, or as Ricky Bobby would say "If you ain't first, you're last"

while major U.S. sports don't (except Nascar really), international sports do (like soccer, olympics, etc.)
not a game necessarily, but do have 2nd and 3rd place

No, this is not the Olympics. We don't award Silver and Bronze medals.

If it's 1 game I like it... Have both teams pick a needy organization, and who ever wins that needy organization gets like 2mil and the losing organization gets like 500k.


I would have loved to seen OKC vs Bulls 2seasons ago.

Pointless. There's not point in playing for third because who wants to be third. I'm sure the 3rd and 4th place teams wouldnt even try. (Unless its just one game)

this on top of everything else, the players wouldn't even play hard. Who cares, we don't even care about 2nd place. You don't win your conference championship, nor advance to the Finals. So you want to lose the "who is the loser of losers" title too?

No, the only time 3rd place matters is when medals are invole...
