Thank God. The current format is for the birds. I'd honestly rather be the lower seeded team with the current format.

But know former finalist can say, this generation has it easy; back in my day, we had to play 3 Final's game straight on the road...blah,blah,blah

Maybe they should have all Finals game 7, at a neutral site...To compensate for a weaker/stronger, east/west yearly.

I assume he was being sarcastic and if so, I don't see the humor or wit.

If he wasn't, then never mind, that's 8 games.

u know, i always felt this way. but i realized game 7 only makes a city highly likely to prepare for nothing. so i realized.. what would be perfect is if the neutral city got the last 3 games of a 7 game series.

game 5 6 and 7. the team with the better record can get the first two games at home. and the other team gets 3 and 4. that means they only travel 3 times. and the most important games are played in neutral ground. (which would be determined before the nba season started. followed by a 'runner up city' incase the selected city makes it to the finals.

I never understood why it was 2-3-2 anyways. Probably a business side of things.

They really should make the Playoffs as follows:

1st Round - Best of 7
2nd Round - Best of 5
Conf. Finals - Best of 3
Finals - One game.

They would be losing so much money. Doesn't make sense.

I've felt that 3 straight home games doesn't pose the same psychological factor because the road team and home crowd get too comfortable. The downside of 2-2-1-1-1 is the increase of cross country traveling.

Yeah, but they travel all season on hectic schedules regardless. I just think the 2-3-2 format is very unfair. If the under wins one game, they get the luxury of having 3 games at their home and another 2 tries if needed. 2-2-1-1-1 makes more sense as it actually gives the up team an advantage.

That's my point, I love defense... Zones are for college and high school, the NBA is supposed to be the cream of the crop. Zones are to hide people who can't play defense and also is the reason why we don't have a lot of post up centers or power forwards anymore... When before if you couldn't guard your man, then you needed help on a double team or you try to make the offensive player drive the ball INTO the help on defense...

I just think that zones are better suited for college and high school rather than the NBA....

No one wants to watch Charles Barkley or Howard posting up for hours. Not exactly entertaining.
