The WNBA actually did move a bit in the opposite direction when it came up with the one and done. The main reason was that the lower teams seldom made money of the playoffs and it was embarrassing when they were playing in some out of the way arena. far from their normal home court.

Yes, the current playoff format gives the haters the ammunition of calling the WNBA the Who Cares league. The W can do whatever they want to do. But if I don't see some positive changes that I like in 2022, I might have to put this league in my history book.

Did the Washington game get bumped up to ABC on Sunday? Initially it was LV /PHX but now I see it's the WSH/MIN game. I get they may be fighting for playoff position but LV/PHX is still a way better game.

The LV/PHX game can also impact who gets the #2 seed.

Fun little tool if anyone's interested. Plug in results of remaining games (the first one is done, seeing as this was released before tonight's game) and it tells you how the seedings play out: WNBA - Choose Your Own Adventure

If the Sparks lose [today's game vs. the Dream], does that eliminate them from the playoffs?


Yes, if LA loses, the most they can have is 12 wins.

What I'd like to see, which isn't going to happen, is for the league to expand to 15 teams, then divide the league into 3 conferences:

EAST: CT, NY, WASH, ATL, TBA
CENTRAL: CHI, IND, MN, DAL, TBA
WEST: LA, LV, SEA, PHX, TBA

You could even name the conferences after people if you want

Schedule: Play your own conference 3X, the teams in the other 2 conferences twice. (Keeps the 32 game schedule)

Playoffs: 5 out of 15 make it. All conference winners get a bye to round 2. Two best records among non-conference winners play a best of 3. Then two rounds of best of 5 series to determine a champion.

Interesting idea, I like it

After all the losing they’ve been doing, there’s still a path to playoffs for NYL.
Step 1: Home win over WAS on 9/17. Can they just win this one game for themselves?
Step 2: MIN victory over WAS on the road on 9/19. MIN might still be battling for seeding.
Step 3: DAL beating LAS at home on 9/19.
Step 4: Prepare for PHX or SEA. SEA might actually be beatable if Stewart is still out.
