Time for NBA to Change Its Playoff Format

Time for NBA to Change Its Playoff Format

Hyped by on April 12, 2012 Website:

The NBA playoffs are a couple of weeks away from starting, yet more than a month away from knowing who wins in the first round.

Playoff games every night of the week for weeks can be cool and for many years it worked out well. But, times have changed and a quicker format seems appropriate now.

The internet generation has given sports junkies more perspective. Getting to the point is more important than seeing more games played just for the heck of it.

The buildup to the conference finals and championship can be improved upon and made to be more responsive to fans expectations.
