    I get the logic behind it (encouraging teams to not tank), but the NBA lottery guarantees tanking won't guarantee the worst record gets the first pick.

    It's unfair to the 7th and 8th seeds as well because it forces them to play more games for no reason. The 7th seed can potentially lose and not even officially be in the playoffs (Lets keep it real, the playoffs don't start until you're in a 7 game series). This is nothing more than a glorified end to the regular season.

    The NBA did this to make the last few weeks of the regular season more competitive, but the irony is that it already would be if they didn't have those two extra seeds as the races for the 7th and 8th seeds are already close.

    And how is the revenue for those games divided? Do the top seeds get a share?



    Lastly, it was assumed that last year the NBA did this to try and give Zion a shot at going to the playoffs and the Pelicans flopped in the bubble, and here we are again with the Pelicans on the outside looking in with no Zion.

    This shyt is wonderful

    The only tweak they could make going forward is a play in tournament may not be warranted each year. If there is say more than 2 games separation between 7-8, 8-10 than there would be no need. On the other hand if it’s that tight then let em duke it out

    Why should one team get in versus another not due to a higher seed locking up their spot and resting guys?

    Honestly, it is rather corny that the 7th seed in the West could potentially end up 4+ games up on the 8th seed, yet still have to play them in the play-in tournament.

    And the irony is the race for the 8th seed is close. It's a 4 team race. So these teams are essentially playing in playoff level games with only the Pelicans on the verge of being eliminated.

    In that situation, just leave the 7th seed out and have Memphis/San Antonio play with the winner facing GS for the last and final playoff spot in the West.

    Every season doesn't nor should require the play-in tournament.

    True, but they should have included the wrinkle that they did last year where it had to be within a certain number of games.

    Its stupid as shyt. No one can point to a single season in NBA history, where there wasn't urgency amongst the fringe playoff teams in the home stretch...

    There's always been teams tanking and always will be. The teams fighting in that 7-10 range are all typically scrapping in the last month of the season to get in anyway, so the play in is useless as an actual tool and is nothing more than a creative concept to get money back that was lost during covid...

    I aint fukking with this college ass shyt...

    Because you play 82 games to show who was better. You get a full season to prove if you're a Top 8 seed. If you miss the cut, it just wasn't your year...

    I mean it is what it is at this point.


    I’m kind of excited to see what ripple effect this play in concept has in the years to come when things get back to “normal”

    But you're still penalizing Golden State. Why should they have to play an extra game.
