imnew09 has an OK reputation so far
Default Anyone against the Division leader playoff spot

The rule gives advantage to the Division leader.

For example,
4.L.A. Clippers 46 22 0.676
5.Denver5 47 22 0.681

Although Denver's winning % is higher, they're still ranked below the Clippers because of the Division Leader playoff spot rule.

Note: Clippers rank 1 in the pacific, Denver rank 2 Northwest.

I became more aware of this rule since last year when Boston ranked higher than the Hawks even though the Hawks had a better record. I think all the playoff spots should just go by the percentage.

What do you guys know? fair?

So that's the reason why the Warriors are ahead of the Blazers in 2K13 even though we have a better record.

If playoffs started now, nuggets would get HCA still.

Denver would still have home court advantage in the first round cause they have a higher winning % (like Atl having home court vs celtics last year)

Didn't the NBA change the playoff seeding rules because the Clippers tanked a few games towards the end of the 06 season so they would have HCA against the Nuggets? Nuggets won their division but the Clippers had the better win/loss record which gave them HCA.

The NBA should change the wording to guarantee a top 5 seed so fans can avoid confusion. This topic comes up every year it seems.

yea i know but i get why it is top 4 in stead of 5 thanks to your other post. I wasn't aware that it is possible that the 6th seed could have a better record than the 3rd seed.

It is really unlikely, but possible. I doubt the 6th seed has even been within 4-6 games of the 3rd seed.

Leave as is. Divisions are fine, and teams should be rewarded for winning them.

Divisions are not relevant in the NBA, and winning them should offer no advantage over a team with a superior record.

Of course they are relevant. Every professional sports league has them.

You guys are bitching over playoff seeding (1 fcking home game). In 2010 the NY football Giants missed the ENTIRE playoffs with a 10-6 record, meanwhile the Seattle Seahawks made the playoffs with a 7-9 record. That's something real to bitch about, and no one in football wants to get rid of divisions.

Of course! Everyone should be against it as it's ridiculous as hell. Just like whichever League wins the All-Star game in baseball gets home-field advantage in the World Series.
