It’s intriguing to imagine how the system might work in the NBA. Since divisions were realigned in 2002 (when the Hornets moved from Charlotte to New Orleans), Stern and Jackson have sought a way to add value to division titles. Giving the winners a choice of first-round playoff opponents would accomplish that goal.
Imagine the choices in the Western Conference.
As of Monday morning, the Pacific-leading Lakers would be able to choose among the Hornets, Trail Blazers, Jazz and Mavericks. The Spurs, leaders of the Southwest Division, would get choice No. 2, with the Northwest-leading Nuggets getting third choice.
The No. 4 seed would be stuck with whichever team was not selected by the division champs.
The Lakers probably wouldn’t pass up playing the No. 8 Mavericks, but if the Trail Blazers were to slide to No. 8, it might be a different story. The Lakers have lost seven straight games at The Rose Garden. That might be cause for pause.
And if the Spurs were to choose among the Blazers, Jazz and Hornets?
There is no good answer, unless one of those potential foes had a key player out with injury.
