For a minute there, I thought I was the only one who thought the NBA playoffs should be a one game elimination instead of a dragged out seven game series.
From DenverPost.Com, Denver Nugget George Karl shared a few ideas on where he would like to see the NBA head in the future:
Do you think you should wipe out divisions and just have conference standings?
“I’m even crazier than that,” the Nuggets’ coach said. “I think you should put all top-16 and do it that way, and then reseed for the next round,” he said.
So basically, here’s Karl’s idea: The top eight teams from the Western Conference and the top eight teams from the Eastern Conference are put into a playoff pool. At this point, conference affiliation no longer matters. Instead, it’s all about record.
The team with the best record plays the team with the 16th-best record and so on.

When George Karl was asked Saturday if the NBA should get rid of divisions and just have conference standings for the playoffs, he replied ”I’m even crazier than that.” The Nuggets coach would implement a top-16, where the top eight teams from the East and the top eight teams from the West would enter a pool seeded according to records.

We as NBA, fans should be ashamed of ourselves. For the past two months, we have been on a Miami Heat binge that has been so strong that we’ve become oblivion to anything else around us. This includes, and in no particular order, food, family, work, NCAA March Madness, and the Denver Nuggets. How could we miss all of these things in such a short time, I’m not sure. However, we...
It’s a shame the Miami Heat have overshadowed what the Denver Nuggets are doing. If the Heat weren’t chasing down an NBA record for consecutive wins, we’d all be talking about the Nuggets a lot more. Denver is currently on a 15-game win streak, which is extremely impressive when you consider: A) how bad the Nuggets have played on the road up to this point (11-19 before the...
The Denver Nuggets won their 15th consecutive game Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings, but coach George Karl wasn't happy with his players lackluster performance.
Following the Nuggets' 101-95 victory over the Kings at the Pepsi Center, Karl made it clear he doesn't want to hear his players say they're tired.
Given their recent play without starting point guard Ty Lawson, coach George Karl wasn't surprised that the Denver Nuggets' lengthy winning streak came to end.
Getting back on track likely won't be any easier when Denver visits a San Antonio Spurs team that's seeking a sixth consecutive home victory Wednesday night.
Lawson has missed the last three games with a...
The Denver Nuggets are on the verge of their longest win streak in franchise history, but coach George Karl hasn't been pleased with his team's recent efforts.
After a pair of close calls, the Nuggets should get Ty Lawson and Wilson Chandler back as they try to make history Monday night when they visit the New Orleans Hornets.
Denver (49-22) matched its 1969-70 ABA team...
