Proposal for the NBA

Postby DarthMonk » Tue Feb 27, 2018 9:30 pm

There are 30 teams.

2 conferences of 15 each with 6 divisions of 5 teams each.

Say the Wiz are in American Conference Eastern Division. They play the 25 teams not in their division twice each for 50 games and the 4 teams in their division 8 times each for 82 games total. If you want to cut the number of games a bit just play each team in your division 6 times for a total of 74 games.

3 division winners in each conference are automatically the top 3 seeds.


The top team in each conference gets a bye so after the first round there are 16 teams left for a perfect bracket.

First round is 2 out of 3 and the better seed gets all games at home. 9 is at 8, 10 is at 7, 11 is at 6, ... and 15 is at 2.

Here is the clincher that gets rid of tanking:

The 1st 4 picks in the draft go to the 8 and 9 seeds via mini lottery. Thus no one tanks to be in last. There is incentive to finish 8th instead of 9th cuz you get all first round games at home which, btw, means another 5 to 10 million dollars for the owner - easy. The next 4 picks go to 7 and 10 seeds via mini lottery, etc. No one wants to be last but if you are your fans tune in for the first round.

The top teams don't rest stars as much late cuz they want the bye.

2nd round is 3 out of 5. All other rounds best of 7.

There it is.

Ready to answer objections.

Monk I like that. Makes a whole lotta sense. Ends tanking by the last place teams.
