Adam Silver has said that he’s willing to consider the idea of having just the top 16 teams make the playoffs, instead of the top 8 from each conference.
This is a stupid idea, borne from Western Conference fans being upset that there is a team in the East who is making the playoffs with a sub-.500 record. If they really want to fix the playoffs there are a ton of better options than that. I get that the Suns have been really good this year, but any talk of them “deserving” the playoffs is misguided. Hell, the Bucks deserve the playoffs too. Have you seen how hard they play? They’d love to earn the right to be curbstomped in the first round.
Mike Miller doesn’t care about all that stuff. He cares about coming up big in big games, about shooting jumpers and looking like a meth addict. He will be important for the Grizzlies in the playoffs as he is the only guy on the team who can shoot. Well, him and Jon Leuer. Why doesn’t that guy play again?
