This is not a poll that will decide the CBA playoff structure. This is in fact a simple opinion poll as to how the posters at OSC feel would be the best playoff system. Nothing on this poll is binding to the CBA or otherwise. 'Kay?

2 teams from a conference. You get better races and more competition that way.

Top 3 from each conference. Sorry East Kentucky, no crossover because of
more points then Butte.

Conference Playoffs
2 vs. 3 (Best of 3) Winner vs. 1 (Best of 3)
Finals (Best of 5)
Adios, OSC message boards. (2007-2017)

Top 2 best of 5. Everything else is delaying the inevitable. Yakima and Minot are clearly the 2 best teams. They've earned the right. Let them duke it out in a 5 gamer.

When was the last time a top seed won a championship in any sport? Let the playoffs determine the winner

totally agree with the F.O. post...but MOST important to keep in mind that teams were told top 4 makes the playoffs.

with those words right from Dennis's mouth....we should expect follow-through and not these last-minute scramblings as of late. If the league is to gain popularity and credibility, then fans, management, and general masses should be able to rely on Traux's words. Stay to the established plans and let the higher seeds fall where they are upset... that's why we play the games!
