1 drmilktruck 1 month ago My son and I were talking about the NHL & NBA Finals, both of which started this week. We both decided that at every other level of those sports, tournaments are one & done. Only some pro sports drag things out to 7 games. Of course the usual answer is money - TV & the owners and the players have a vested interest in more games. But that's not true always. The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the US and the World Cup worldwide. Both are one game for the championship, with massive TV audiences. March Madness is a pretty big money maker too, and it's win or go home. If you're a basketball fan wouldn't you love a one game Final, LeBron vs. Steph, bring your best game? No tomorrow. I assume many players would prefer that, easier on the body, extreme competition. (Others of course would cringe, seeking safety in numbers, avoiding ignominy like Scott Norwood. But that's why they make the big bucks.) TV could charge massive advertising fees like the Super Bowl, and owners could jack up prices on tickets and all the other stuff. What do you think?
