No offense, but doing that would mean a complete overhaul of the table. It's pretty clear who is from the West and who is from the East, unlike the Super Bowl champs list. I think it can stay the same. Noble Story (talk) 13:36, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Then use light green or any other color except a bluish hue. --HowardtheDuck 14:38, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
If you decide to change the table, you might want to implement something like this. Hello32020 (talk) 02:41, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
If no one objects, I'll change the light blue to light green. Blue is the color associated to the Eastern Conference so for NBA enthusiasts it'll be quite awkward. --HowardtheDuck 14:26, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I'd change the color into light yellow. --HowardtheDuck 07:43, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Support Looks good. Last suggestion: the cross is better then the asterisk, but it's awfully big. Howabout † ? Drewcifer (talk) 06:22, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I made it smaller.—Chris!ct 16:22, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Resolved stuff from Drewcifer
Comment Overall it looks pretty good, but I do have a few questions/suggestions:
The year column should be center-aligned.
Also concerning the legend, I'd recommend adding the blue background legend to the same table as the other legend.
"All NBA Finals are in..." weird present tense, when compared to the rest of the sentence which is past tense.
"The home-and-away format was in a 2-2-1-1-1 format (that is, the team with the better regular season record plays on their home court in Games 1, 2, 5 and 7) until 1985 (except 1953–55, 1975 and 1978, the latter two in a 1-2-2-1-1 format) when it was changed into a 2-3-2 format (the team with the better regular season record plays on their home court in Games 1-2 and 6-7), although all other playoff series are still in a 2-2-1-1-1 format." I realize that this is a complicated issue to explain, but this is a huge sentence with alot of parenthesis and numbers and other stuff going on, which makes it even more confusing.
"1984 win the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, from 1978 to 1983 the Walter A. Brown Trophy, and prior to 1978 they got to keep the Brown Trophy for a year until the next champion is determined." Again, a weird mish-mash of tenses.
Why is the MVP stuff mentioned in the lead? What does that have to do with anything? Drewcifer (talk) 00:50, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure what "Tied the best regular season standing for that season." means. Also, I think a better symbol then an asterisk should be used, since the asterisk is easy to miss.
OK, I've covered all your points. Noble Story (talk) 15:32, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Support, looks good. GreenJoe 00:05, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
