    It made sense for the bubble when the season was suddenly cut short....but now it just feels like a money grab by the NBA.

    This is a 72 game season. We've seen shorter seasons before without the need for a play-in tournament. I would be pissed if I was a 7-seed who spent all season earning that spot just to lose it by playing two bad games.
    Ding ding ding.

    The same reason the NFL and MLB expanded their playoffs. More playoff teams means more teams have something to play for late in the season.

    It's a disgrace that 2/3 of the teams in the league make the playoffs, but that's life. The owners don't care about tradition or fairness, only money.

    Oh man, Jerami Grant looks legit as a 3.5. We need to find ourselves someone who will explode like that.

    Has a player ever improved that much in his 8th season? Disclaimer that it's only an 8 game sample size but he's gone from 12 PPG to 24 PPG one year to another.

    Granted it's his sixth year but the same thing happens to Woods

    Word on the nets subreddit is that he's seeking Capela money.
    Would "Capela money" fit into the Nets' financial situation though? Or would it be another Collins case, where they hesitate to pay him because of finances? I wouldn't mind paying him that money, tbh, I think Allen is easily better than Capela right now.

    Does it still not make sense why there's a play-in tournament? Players are missing games left and right. The end of the season record is not going to be a fair indicator of how good or bad a team truly was.

    Alright, you have a fair point. I didn't take any of that stuff into consideration.

    After seeing what happened to the Sixers I can see why they still have the play in game. Still my wish is after the Covid situation is under control that they get rid of this play in game whether that's a year from now or a few years from now.
