SORT BY Relevancy
Adam Silver has been commissioner of the NBA for 14 months now. He has been forceful on one issue -- the lifetime suspension of Donald Sterling, which led to the sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to billionaire Steve Ballmer.
It is time for Silver to stand a stand again, and this time it has to do with reformatting the playoffs.
I wrote an open letter to Silver about this very issue less than a month ago, and it is certain to come up at the NBA Board of Governors meeting in New York next week. My suggestion: Take the six division winners, seed then 1 through 6, and then take the remaining teams with the 10 best records and bracket them so that 1 plays 16, 2 plays 15, and so on.
That was one of the topics I discussed today on the Eric Hasseltine Show on ESPN Radio in Memphis, along with plenty of talk about the flatlining Grizzlies, the surging Spurs and a few other NBA topics. Enjoy.
