This is one of the strangest NBA seasons I can remember. Eight teams make the playoffs from both the Eastern and Western conferences. If the playoffs started today, the Denver Nuggets would not make the playoffs at 11 games over .500.
If they were in the Eastern Conference, however, they would be the 4th seed. The West has been better than the East for some time now, but this is ridiculous. The 8th seed in the east right now is 7 games under .500.
If this keeps up, here is a vote for a playoff reseed to get the best teams into the postseason. I usually think messing with these things is not worth it, but I really don't want to watch a Celtics/Nets first round matchup. That could set basketball back years.
