Who's watching the playoffs? Who are you rooting for? My Bulls are exciting again, so after many years of not caring about the NBA, my interest is piqued again. It's been so long since I've paid attention to the playoffs (I started watching again last year), that it seems there must have been a rule change or two since I last tuned in. Specifically, I'm talking about the rules governing home court advantage in the playoffs. The Bulls are seeded 5th, and the Heat are seeded 4th. Yet the Bulls got home court advantage (and are rocking Miami's world in the process! ). Up until at least 2000, the higher seeded team always got home court advantage. What gives?
