Adam Silver, while working for the NBA before becoming the league’s commissioner, floated the idea of adding play-in games for the postseason and got some support from owners.

Now as commissioner, Silver remains “fascinated” with the idea of a tournament to determine the final playoff spots.

“By having a seven-game series, you reduce the randomness of the outcome,” Silver said. “I think what’s so exciting about college basketball — and I’m a huge college basketball fan — is the single-elimination tournament, the NCAA tournament. There, statistically, you’re gonna have a lot more upsets. So, I think for us, well, I have mixed views.
