I believe the deal with the NBA is they are trying to find a way to boost TV ratings and to raise the profile of the lesser teams. The NBA is, and always has been, a top-heavy league; any given season there are really only a handful of teams that have a legitimate shot at a championship, and everyone else is just fodder, and everyone knows it before the season even begins. This means the majority of the league is basically shit.

It's just going to be a secondary playoffs where the same shit teams are eliminated immediately, and the same 6 good teams will be playing in the end.
