---------------------------


What if the top 4 seeds in each conference each got to choose their first round opponent from the bottom 4 playoff teams in their conference.

So the first seed would pick who they play first, then the second seed would pick from the remaining three, etc...

I think it would make it more meaningful to be in the top 4 and as it stands, the match-ups are very random, as teams can move around several spots on the last day.

It would also add a little insult factor for the team that gets picked first, making the match-up a little more exciting.

Would this change anything this year? With the Lakers surging (sort of), Celtics playing well, and the Knicks collapsing (completely)... would this idea prevent the stupid jockeying for position that goes on?
