I definitely agree, it's a bit more exciting as well.

Either way, it is more fair for the home court team. Honestly 3 straight home games can turn any series around if either team is remotely close in talent.

Yeah, I kinda didn't mind it the other way when I was rooting for teams without the homecourt, but this is fairer as it should be.

The only bad side I see is at game 5-7, both teams gotta travel.

Back in the 60s, it was 1-1-1-1-1-1

hasn't the home team consistently won in the NBA Finals the last few years despite this though?


wasn't it like 75% home teams have won the championship since the 2-3-2 format anyway?

Sweet! I hated the 2-3-2 format. It's a freakin' trap.
