Default Re: Would decreasing playoff games be better?

Is this a real thread? The first round has been INCREDIBLE since the switch, especially in the past 3 or 4 years, why would we change that?

Playoff basketball is so fun...wouldn't hate the 5 games...but 7 is fine.

The only thing to fix in terms of the games played in the NBA is the regular season.

The on court product would be much better with 10 or so less games. Won't ever happen, but yea...it would be better.

I'd like a day off between each game myself.

Maybe drop 12 games from the season, first round is 7 and the rest of the playoffs are best of 9?

Clearly no chance but man as a fan I'd be all about that!

Best-of-5 in the first round is better imo. Makes it more exciting as there's a better possibility of upsets. You get to play fewer games which give teams more energy in the later rounds.
