Should NBA go back to Best of 5 in First Round?

I think so but it is all about the money.

I remember this awesome series and doubt it it happens in a best of seven.

Back to five, but as was previously stated...it will not happen due to money.

I believe the 1st rd was best of 3 prior to the mid-80's.

Fewer teams should make the playoffs, the season should be shorter, the series should be shorter, MLB season should be shorter, NHL season should be shorter...NONE OF IT IS EVER GOING TO HAPPEN. We're damned to watching basketball in the middle of the damn summer and baseball in the 30 degree weather...

I don’t mind basketball being this long, although best of 7 in rd 1 is silly. Baseball is the sport that drags on too long, imo.
