We are regular-season stans here at the Over and Back Classic NBA podcast. What if we valued the best team in the regular season as much or more as the NBA tournament winner? The regular season is obviously longer with a greater sample size — you could argue it's more reflective of the quality of the team that season (obviously a lot of people would argue otherwise)
How would it change how we think of teams in NBA history? Whose legacies would be affected most?
Listen to Part 1 of this two-part series as we examine how the championship would play out over the course of NBA, ABA and pre-NBA history if we awarded titles to the league's best regular season team.
