Are the 2010 NBA playoffs fixed?

The NBA will always state that no NBA game is rigged (other than those previously officiated by the disgraced Tim Donaghy), but superstars always gain the advantages.

While watching Kobe Bryant, as thousands have noticed and pointed out, the officials will allow him to carry the ball while dribbling, a violation. Certain players may be given the star treatment, but generally, the entire game is not fixed.

How are the NBA playoffs seeded?

Following the NBA regular season, eight teams in each conference qualify for the playoffs and are seeded one to eight. The team that has the best record in each of the three divisions in each conference is declared division champion. The three champions, and the one other team in the conference with the best record are seeded one through four by their records. This guarantees that the division champions will be no lower than fourth seed, and also ensures that a conference's two best teams (by record) are ranked as the top two. Of the remaining 11 conference teams, the four with the best records are seeded fifth through eighth based on their records. In the event that two teams end up tied for the same seed, the following tiebreakers are employed[1]: # Head-to-head # Division record (if the teams are in the same division) # Conference record # Record vs. Playoff teams, own conference # Record vs. Playoff teams, other conference # Net points, all games The first round of the playoffs, or Conference Quarterfinals, consists of four matchups in each conference, based on the seedings (1-8, 2-7, 3-6, and 4-5). The eight winners advance to the second round, or Conference Semifinals, in which, unlike other leagues (such as the NHL), matchups are set in advance as between the winners of the 1-8 and 4-5 series, and the winners of the 2-7 and 3-6 series, and not based on the seeds of the winners of those series. The winners of these series advance to the NBA Conference Finals, which determines which team in each conference will advance to the NBA Finals, the winner of which is declared the NBA champion. Each round is a best-of-seven series. All series except the NBA Finals are played in a 2-2-1-1-1 format, meaning the team with home-court advantage hosts games 1, 2, 5 and 7, while their opponent hosts games 3, 4, and 6, with games 5-7 being played if needed. The NBA Finals are played in a 2-3-2 format, meaning the team with home-court advantage hosts games 1, 2, 6 and 7, and their opponent hosts games 3, 4 and 5. The home-court advantage is determined in all four rounds by record, regardless of seed. Source: Wikipedia

Which NBA teams have come back after being down 3-0 in a playoff series?

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in a playoff series. The 1951 New York Knickerbockers, the 1994 Denver Nuggets, and the 2003 Portland Trailblazers came back from a 3-0 deficit to tie the series at 3-3, but neither won their respective Game 7.

Eight teams, however, have rallied back from a 3-1 deficit. Those include:

  1. 1968 Boston Celtics
  2. 1970 LA Lakers
  3. 1979 Washington Bullets
  4. 1981 Boston Celtics
  5. 1995 Houston Rockets
  6. 1997 Miami Heat
  7. 2003 Detroit Pistons
  8. 2006 Phoenix Suns

Another playoff tidbit

Many more teams have come back from a 2-0 deficit, but that is much more common.

How many steps is considered traveling before a layup in basketball?

Answer

3/28/2011

Technically you are allowed a two-count rhythm associated by how a player receives the ball and the pivot foot is the basis for the counts. Typically the two-count rhythm is considered to equal 1 and 1 half steps, because on the second step you must either pass or shoot. However in the NBA they are relaxed on the traveling and some refs will allow for an extra step taking into consideration a player on fast break running at full speed. As long as they are consistent no one will complain too much. There is a dumb rumor that three steps are allowed before a layup, but only two steps on any other shot, etc. This is complete false. Also street rules are different than NBA as is NCAA. They are similar, but there a few differences.

Answer2 steps is the most you can take 3 is ileagal and tecnicly its orignally 1 and a half but they let you take 2 Answer

I am posotive that u can only take 2 because 3 is an odd number and acient Greeks always beleived in using even numbers because they thought that it was bad luck to use a odd number instead of a even number !i think that is cool don't u !
