    The play in this year is silly imo. Everyone has the same amount of games this season to get into the top 8 seeds. Last yr the season was cut with plenty of games left to where teams in the 9 and 10 seed actually had a chance to still make the playoffs. That was the point of last year's play-in.

    The only people complaining about the play-in tournament are the teams at the 5/6 seed that are playing like garbage and potentially dropping to 7 or 8. The play-in makes sense because this season is only 72 games....without those additional 10 games to settle the playoff spots, it's fair to give the 9-10 seeds a crack at getting into the playoffs.

    If the Lakers right now we’re a top three seed, there is no way that LeBron would be returning from his injury at this point. He is visibly nervous and concerned as he should be that the Lakers will be making an early exit from the playoffs this year.

    @Cody Hobbs I honestly don't care about LeBron or eho ever shares the opinion. I just happen to think the play in is a joke to and needs to get rid of. So what if it makes the league look bad? They made a mistake doing it again and should own up for it

  52. Tommy Osborne

    Tommy OsborneПре 10 дана

    @Cody Hobbs play in games worked last year because teams didn't play the same amount of games this year it makes no sense to reward teams with a chance to pull of 2 wins when they couldn't get to a top 8 seed. No league should give 2/3 of the competition a chance for playoffs when the regular season is over.

    I think the players are doing a poor job of articulating why the play-in tournament is bad. You're essentially increasing the value of a single game at the end of the season and devaluing most of the rest of the season. If you prefer the NCAA tournament over a full regular season, then sure the play-in tournament is great. If you actually value the regular season and think it's unfair that a team that you were 5 games ahead of gets in because you had foul trouble or injuries in a single game after the season, then no you're not going to like the play-in.
