re: Do you prefer the new NBA Playoff Format vs the Old style?
I'm generally of the opinion that any playoff which includes sub .500 teams is a bit of a clown show.

Old way but having over half the league get into the postseason is kind of dumb

This format would be great if it was further up the seeding line. For instance....

1 & 2 get a bye
3-4 are seeded as such
5-8 play the play in format.

After play in 6 plays 3 and 4 plays 5. Winners play 1 & 2

re: Do you prefer the new NBA Playoff Format vs the Old style?
The 9-10 seeds fading way way back in the standings has really ramped up with the flattening of the lottery odds, and this helps avoid that a bit.

One of the first years of the flattened odds the Mavericks traded everybody with a pulse other than Doncic to tank a .500 team at the deadline. They’d be less incentivized to do that now.

Both the good and bad teams have been trying to game the standings at the end of the season for matchups and lottery balls for what feels like a more protracted period every year. Getting rid of that even a little with the play-in is a good thing.

most such whining pertains to sub .500 teams.

eastern conference recently.

theres always been tinkering.

we lost some high seeds during the short first series days.
they have had best of 9, best of 5, was there best of three?

i think lebron and luka are in shock that they could be in a very short series.
