In response to OneOnOne's comment:
And as you can see, for what ever reason you want to use, the top seeds lose at a alarming rate. That was my point and I proved it with facts. Doesn't matter what seed beats what seed.
Not sure what your trying to point out other than what I just pointed out, that a top seed lost. I could go thru all the "upsets" and probably come up with a reason why they lost as well. Again the point was top seeds lose frequently.
Just for the record I think the Heat will win it all again but that doesn't mean I don't have confidence that we or someone else could knock them off. Nearly everytime a top seed loses it generally a upset, some bigger than other, but a upset all the same.
What is the point you are making?
The point I'm trying to make is why be stubborn?
If the Celts can control their seeding then why go for 4th or 5th if they can get 6th or 7th.
That's all I'm saying.
I believe you are the one being stubborn. My points are very valid and just because you don't agree with them doesn't make me stubborn. I also have pointed out stats that back up what I am saying. Again I have no control over where they end up.
This thread was started to show that number one seeds lose frequently and somehow you bring to the discussion that we should manipulate our seeding, or tell me what seeds can beat what seeds. Think you got off track there just a little bit?
Of course the higher seed normally wins. There is a reason they have the higher because they had the better record, hence home court advantage. I can also point out 2 #8 seeds have beaten 2 #1 seeds. Doesn't have a thing to do with who won the ring. I never mentioned who won a title, just that plain and simple #1 seeds lose.
Seems to me you just want to argue for the sake of arguing. You seem to be floating all over the place trying to find something to disagree with me about.
Again this thread is to show #1 seeds lose frequently.
I am done with this back and forth because there is no telling what you will bring up next and I have no desire to continue along this path.
