NBA thinking of non-traditional Playoff first rounds to increase ratings

League sources have consistently said during the past few weeks that games will likely resume with the playoffs.

NBA is considering a non-traditional Playoff first round in order to create more interest among casual fans of the NBA, according to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor.

Ratings for the first round were down significantly last season, as there were two sweeps and only two series went beyond five games played.
