Look at the NBA still catering to Michael Jordan! He's not even involved and he's deciding that we're just doing a regular ass playoff format? Come on. Give us something cool, one time when you can get weird and no one would complain. Give us the pool play setting, give us a true play-in tournament, give us something truly different here. And sure it makes sense to listen to Jordan since he's Michael fucking Jordan, but it's not like he's a great exec. Remember Kwame Brown? Remember some of his other draft picks? His free agent signings? Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
Don't get me wrong I'm thrilled we get to watch sports again but I'm selfish. I want to see something different since we've been robbed of the last 3 months. I want to see something that will get me more jazzed up than just hearing hoops is back.
I'd actually love to sit in on a meeting like this. I want to hear how Jordan talks to that moron Dolan. How do all these guys interact when they know who is actually good at running a team and who blows? I want to hear the ideas that some of these guys came up with before Jordan stressed the importance of a regular playoff format. Really I just need to hear Jordan berate Dolan.
