In my opinion most of the NBA regular season is un-watchable. The Eastern Conference has been a joke for most of this year. Atlanta is going to make the playoffs being 8 games under .500. I think this needs to change. If you can't play .500 basketball over an 82 game season, then you don't belong in the playoffs. Keep them out. Give the #1 seed a bye. That would eliminate a crappy series in the playoffs and give more incentive to get the #1 seed which Miami and Indiana don't seem to care about.
