Phil Neville, NBA discussed on ExtraTime



Match hosted by the higher seed, extra time to 15 minute periods. I don't think I have to explain that, but I guess I will. Score is tied. You go to penalty kicks to determine the winner. So that in a nutshell is the new playoff format. And I know people out there are going to grow and they're going to say, God, another playoff format for us to learn. Phil Neville was talking about it this week. He's like, where's this thing out, man? We need to play off format. Look, I agree, we have it now. I am I am in sort of that middle ground of like, let's see it. Let's see it in action before we pass some summation on it. We're like, okay, here's my summary judgment. This is good or it's bad. I think there are a lot of good things. I think there are some things that are going to be hard for people change always is. But more games, man, more momentum. I remember last year and I love the playoffs, like it's the time of year where I am, I feel like I am the most alive professionally and, you know, I wouldn't say it's my wife, not personally, but it gives me some juice. It gives me some juice, but I felt like when you hit a Saturday Sunday, then a Wednesday, even I lost a little bit of juice between. It just like, I remember watching, for instance, the NBA playoffs in college and the best part about it was every single night. Me and all my buddies would get together and we would just sit down and we would watch the games and it felt like this never ending sort of ever growing crescendo. And I feel like with more games, more opportunities to build more moments for greatness, like I'm not personally at this moment complaining about that. Do I love that 19 teams? Are going to get in? Look, it's not my favorite thing, but like in the Eastern Conference, for instance, 6 teams still aren't going to get in. In the Western Conference, 5 teams aren't going to get in. If this sticks in the league grows, that number is that ratio is going to get better. And oh, by the way, those lower seeds are at a severe disadvantage. They just get one home game.
