Adam Silver says NBA leaning toward not guaranteeing a playoff spot at all for a division winner

nba-commisioner-adam-silver-first-year-600x330For the past few season, fans have complained about the way the NBA playoff format is set up. As it stands now, division winners are guaranteed one of the top four seeds in each conference. That format caused the a first round matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers this past season. Commissioner Adam Silver says that this topic has been discussed a lot with the owners. With that being said, Sliver says theĀ NBA is leaning toward not guaranteeing a playoff spot at all for a division winner.

 

 

I do think you should be rewarded for winning you division, so I’m cool with guaranteeing a playoff spot. But giving a division winner one of the top four seeds is ridiculous and I’m glad they are in the process of changing this.
