Let’s Let Everybody Play!

Right now the NBA is taking a break, giving 16 teams a couple of days to prepare for the Playoffs… but what about the other teams? What about the 14 squads that don’t get to play… they’re planning vacations instead of First Round rotations? Why not let EVERYBODY play!

Why not set up a 30 team bracket, with 5 Rounds of basketball. The First Round could be a Best of 3… perfect for some exciting upsets, Second and Third Rounds as Best of 5, Fourth and Final are your customary Best of 7.

Here’s what it’d look like with the 2018/19 end of season standings…

30 Teams (2 First Round Byes)

Bucks (1) get a Bye

Pistons (16) vs. Hornets (17) – A nice matchup of evenly matched opponents.

Celtics (9) vs. Mavs (24)

Jazz (8) vs. Wizards (25)

– – –

Nuggets (4) vs. Suns (29)

Clippers (12) vs. Lakers (20) – The League would LOVE to see LeBron play LA in LA… could The King win 2 of 3 all by himself?

Spurs (12) vs. Wolves (21)

Rockets (5) vs. Cavaliers (28)

– – –

Raptors (2) get a Bye

Nets (15) vs. Kings (18)

Thunder (10) vs. New Orleans (23)

Sixers (7) vs. Hawks (26)

– – –

Warriors (3) vs. Knicks (30) – This one would be interesting cause of all the Durant to New York stuff… but not cause of the basketball

Magic (14) vs. Heat (19)

Pacers (11) vs. Grizzlies (22)

Trailblazers (6) vs. Bulls (27)


The system needs to change… let’s let everyone into the Playoffs… let’s let EVERYONE PLAY!
