2013-14 Playoff format

Post by Evad on Wed Jun 19, 2013 3:07 pm

Ok, because there are ten teams this is my take on how the playoffs should happen...

Top 4 teams in each division make it into the playoffs.

Team 1 plays team 4 best of 3
Team 2 plays team 3 best of 3

Winner of those games go head to head for division championship best of 5 series

Central winner plays Atlantic winner in best of 7 for title.  For those of you that need a visual...

Semi-finals     Division Finals           Championship     
London                                                                                 Halifax
                   Ottawa                                             Saint John                 
Ottawa                                                                                 Saint John
                                        Mississauga     Summerside
Windsor                                                                                Moncton
                   Mississauga             ______?______       Summerside
Mississauga                               League Champion                     Summerside

Teams are just for reference so don't go crazy on me.  Shocked

Yes, that was how I was kind of imagining the playoffs would go. It's the simplest format.

Called it...I think they read my post...Just kidding. This is almost exactly what I suggested. Instead of best of 3 for division they going with best of 5. Then best of 7 for division title and championship game.

This is what I said...
Top 4 teams in each division make it into the playoffs.

Team 1 plays team 4 best of 3
Team 2 plays team 3 best of 3

Winner of those games go head to head for division championship best of 5 series

Central winner plays Atlantic winner in best of 7 for title. 

This is what they said...
"Also Friday, the owners approved a new playoff format to accommodate the NBL’s expansion to 10 teams.

The top four teams in each division will advance to divisional playoffs. 
Divisional semifinals will be best-of-five affairs in a 2-2-1 format and the 
divisional finals best-of-seven series with a 2-2-1-1-1 format.

The division winners will advance to a best-of-seven championship final with a 2-3-2 format."

Yes, this will make a very interesting playoffs. However, I don't like how most of the teams will make the playoffs. 8 of 10 teams? Oh well, this should be interesting, and I look forward to the playoffs.

Nice job at callin' it, Evad.

I agree, having 8 of 10 makes it seem as though two teams simply get the shaft. At that rate, they might as well just go with all 10 and do it by rank; but I can appreciate the fact that they are at least looking to accommodate the new teams into the fold.

I hate to say this, but the playoff format for this season is a complete joke. EVERY team in the Atlantic division makes the playoffs. Why even bother playing all those regular season games (and most importantly, what makes anyone want to pay money to see games during the regular season when there is quite literally NOTHING on the line aside from playoff seeding? All I can say is that it better change in 2014-2015.
