I’ve heard people talk about it and read people’s opinions on social media, but I don’t think I’ve given my opinion on it:
I think the NBA Playoffs should be the traditional conference formats. There’s already enough stuff to do to pull off. No reason to add more on top. But if there ever was a year to do the 1-16….
I also don’t want to add any more fuel to the fire of the asterisk crowd. Every team is in the same boat right now. If we can have traditional play formats with 7-game series, I think that removes the asterisk stuff. Or at least it should.
Remember, the 1998-99 season and the 2011-12 seasons were both shortened due to lockouts, I don’t ever remember hearing about the champions having an asterisk during those seasons.
