Because more revenue for the NBA is very important for all teams, not just the 22 teams playing in Orlando. It's all about money. Playoff games will still draw a lot of interest, especially after such a long break.

Bringing back all 30 teams would've been really unncessary and some teams probably wouldn't have been interested at all. Seems like the Bulls didn't really care.

BTW, I don't see how next season is ruined already.

Lowest ranked team gets #1 and so on. So you get guys like young, lavine, collins, KAT, Griffin, Curry and Russel in the playoffs.

Would be interesting to see if adding Curry to Washington or Kat to the Spurs or such could push a first round upset.


This is pure fantasy.

Would never happen.

It would be pretty cool if it did happen.

Agreed, but it would add another asterisk to an asterisk-y season. I wanted them to go all out on experimenting in this Orlando bubble with the playoff format but now that we have an official announcement, it's good imo that they went as "normal" as possible.

If you got an asterick, might as well have a big asterick.

The solution they came up with was awful. They should have started the playoffs (no regular season) the first week in July, which would have allowed the season to end around September, which is when the NFL is supposed to start. Instead, they are going to go toe to toe with the NFL which is going to be a terrible decision.

Teams that go deep into these "playoffs" will have almost no offseason, while teams that got their season shortened will have a 6 month offseason.

so you're saying look out for the hornets, bulls, knicks, pistons, hawks, cavs, wolves and warriors to make some noise next season?

this may well benefit the warriors next season, but other than that i don't see significant concerns from a competitive fairness perspective

you can look at it as we just had a mini-offseason, too

The Warriors and the Nets will absolutely have an advantage next year.

Although I am sure the affected teams will just use more "load management" to rest their stars.
