Report: NBA competition committee approves change to Finals schedule
Competition committee votes to return Finals to 2-2-1-1-1 format. Ownership will have to vote to approve.
Hope you guys like how long the Finals last. The Boston Herald reports that the NBA could move back to a format that would make it longer.

The Finals are currently in a 2-3-2 format, which gives the underdog team a pretty big advantage. Steal one of the first two and you get three home games in a row. That's a tough spot for the team with the better record.
It's also likely to prolong the Finals as the NBA likes to give teams more time off for travel.
So what's your opinion? Do you like the 2-3-2 better or do you welcome this return to the same format the rest of the playoffs are in?
