Leave the NBA Playoff Seedings Alone

Look, I know folks have been crying and complaining about the lopsided strength between the Eastern and Western Conferences. The West has been dominating the East for at least the last decade. Most of the time the West would have at least six teams with at least 50 wins — one season ALL EIGHT PLAYOFF…

LOVED the NBA All-Star Game Format

I absolutely loved the new format of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game. LOVED it. I loved having the top two vote-getters for the All-Star game pick their squads, draft style.
