ed on the length of the playoffs... it'll be almost July until they wrap up.

I say it every once and awhile, but nobody seems to pick up on it, so i'll try one more time to convince you guys..

They either need to shorten the season, or eliminate some playoff spots... A long season is used to determine the elite of the elite, so why let so many mediocre teams in the playoffs? If you finish 1st or 2nd in the conference after 6 months of regular season games, you shouldn't have to prove you're better AGAIN vs teams 5, 6, 7, and 8.. you've proved it for 6 months, and to make us sit through it again is insulting and an obvious attempt to gouge us as fans.

It's also a slap in the face to the best teams in the league, and encourages them to not even try once they have secured their playoff spots because seeding is essentially meaningless (homecourt in the NBA is a joke compared to other sports and leagues).

If they were to goto shortening the season, things would make much more sense.. allowing 8 teams from each conference could be seen as necessary since you only play, say... 60 games a season. You would have some separation, but not the way you do now with the best teams in the league, and it would still give you the same playoff experience, but the end of the regular season would be MUCH more interesting in this model also, similar to the way baseball's pennant races go.


Anyways - i'm just venting, figured it was a good time to speak on this issue since we're all in NBA mode this week..

Seriously. The NBA sucks enough, even in the post season, but to have a worthless, drawn out regular season, only to end in half of the teams making the playoffs is so @#%$ annoying. Being on this NBA dominated board just makes it that much worse...

Haters, :lol:


If you don't like it, don't come here..?

Regular season is 6 months long, MLB is 7, not only that, but MLB games have twice as many.

THIS IS A BASKETBALL FORUM, IT'S A FORUM ABOUT BASKETBALL SHOES. :lol:


If you don't like it, then why come..?

The MLB season really needs to play 160 games? Talk about shortening NBA, jeez the MLB season is twice as long.. :lol:

I see waves of NTers comin' to disagree with the unappreciation. :lol:


It's the first week of the NBA, they get excited about watching hoops again. After a few weeks, it'll be quieter, somewhat. :lol:

Agreed, its going to be another loooooooooong year..

But this is nothing really new I guess. Im as big a basketball fan as there is and have played the game for years....but regular season NBA games often times are the most boring, "I'm just gonna show up and collect my paycheck today" events in all of sport. I've litterally fallen asleep watching games in person..... But that's just me and Im older now.

They'll be 2-3 dunks that will entertain the kids each contest Im sure.


All pro sport seasons are too long. Its the business, we just deal with it. The NBA playoffs are the probably the biggest joke of all time though, they last 2 full months if the Finals goes 7 games.

Quote:[hr][/hr]I dont' see how you can say taht about Basketball and not say the same thing about Baseball. How is basketball more boring than baseball? Hit the ball, catch it, run after it, throw the ball, that's about it. Not to mention the games take a lot longer than an NBA game does, and if it goes into overtime, it's much more exciting/dramatic.[hr][/hr]

craftsy usually presents extremist views....but i do agree with him on one thing the playoffs.

THE SEASON CAN NEVER BE SHORTENED... it ruins everything .. statistics, strategy, conditioning.. soo many things

BUT... this is where hes right: the nba has one of the worst playoff systems of any sport...People only really are hyped for the first round then @#%$ dies down right after that

I just think the Playoffs are so long to prevent flukes, I wish that MLB would have another round, it seems like damn near no one makes the post-season in MLB.

I don't agree with you, but I do agree that there are too many NBA threads come regular season. I still think those season threads would make it easier because there won't be random game threads poppin all over the place.
