6 gets you five p5 Champs and the "best of the rest" plus a reward for the top 2 with byes, keeping the taliking points interesting and the regular season important.
It'd be perfect imo, so it's never going to happen.
This season is great, but we'll have a playoff that is too big and bloated ...

Making defenders think about what they're doing is imperative and we almost never force zones to make the tough decisions quickly.
Inside out doesn't do much good if the wing players aren't decisive with the basketball as soon as they get it back out. ...

The mavs have been starting the worst pg in the entire western conference. Even if rondo is only say 7th best that is a massive upgrade.
Nelson sucks now and Crowder is redundant with Carlisle's clear preference for afa, so the trade is just a good at worst pg for a backup center. It improves the...

It's not really a "may." The defensecond is bad, but the mavericks offense is insane.
