    Last night, I watched San Antonio blast Detroit in an uncompetitive first game of the NBA finals. Really dull. Many NBA games are more boring than watching Paraguay tie Croatia nil-nil in soccer. Have the NBA Playoffs lasted for the past 2 months, or does it just seem that way? Are they ever going to end?

    Besides the NBA being extremely boring, the playoffs are WAY too long. My recommendation would be to get rid of the first round altogether. As it is, 16 out of 30 teams make the playoffs. What the hell is that?!? Eliminate the first round so that only 8 teams make the playoffs, and make the playoffs a little more interesting - and shorter.
    Then, make the baskets 11 feet high, so that it actually takes effort to dunk!

    Instead they are going in the opposite direction jeff. They only changed the first round from 5 games to 7 3 years ago. If they add more teams, they will add more playoff spots. What these leagues are looking for is not a do or die winner takes all furious playoffs like the NFL. They want an everyone is happy, hoorah for our kids that tried, kinda of playoffs that reflects the way the society is now.
