Too many NBA teams make the playoffs.
The NBA season requires 82 games per team just to knock 14 teams out of contention. Play like shit (read: Lakers) or play great (read: Heat) and, statistically speaking, have an equal opportunity to win an NBA championship. So, what were the last five-and-a-half months for exactly? To get one more playoff game at home in a seven game series. Wow, what an incentive. When more teams are included in the postseason then not, by definition, some of those teams are below average. #nuffsaid
