"n it's 1 v 4 and 2 v 3 best of 3"
So the “4” team is the winner of 4vs 5 in your proposal?
I like how you haven't tried to overdo the “elimination” final series with too many games (only 2 more if my Maths is up to it). Remember that ticket sales and crowds are often down for semis. Unless tv want more finals games, the NBL would be well advised to not expand finals too quickly. Each season’s finals should be reviewed in context of regular season crowds. When demand for tickets reaches a high enough level, then increase the number of finals games.
“32 games season (8 x 4 games)”.
So each team would, presumably, get 2 mor3 home games (and 2 away).
Will this scheduling fit in with Melbourne and Pert venue availability? Both Melbourne teams should, imho, be taking some games to regional cities in Victoria. Could Oerth do this on a 1 game per season basis?
Will the season need to be extended? Or could we just have more mid-week games, tighter turnarounds or something? If the season was extended, it might put pressure on salaries.
