Indy is the team I least want the C's to face in the 1st round. The way they've been playing though, the Pacers might get to the #5 spot. I'd much rather have Boston play Washington than Indy. As for Cleveland, it wouldn't surprise me if they drop out of the playoffs the way they've been playing recently. Philly and NJ could be the #7 and #8 teams respectively.
So its more a league for project players then? So a Darko type player could actually get some minutes instead of getting splinters. That makes some sense. Still 4 teams into 1 doesn't really go, especially if they go with short rotations.
