Congrats to Denver, they've added a division title to their franchise but will not have home court advantage anywhere in the West playoffs (lost season series 3-1 to Kings) and the Finals unless several upsets happen in the East. Kawshen's first idea earlier in the thread is looking better and better.

This is why the current system sucks. Look at the Mavs, 60 wins, second best in the West and a four seed. If they don't have the guts to just seed 1 to 16 then at least 1-8 in the east and west.
Perhaps not under normal circumstances. But it's all dependent upon McGrady's plans. If the Magic feel they can't re-sign him after this coming season, they'll look to trade him. They certainly don't want to risk losing him the way they lost Shaq.
