Should NBA change to a neutral arena for Finals?

 

For years they have played in Homes of both teams, Should there be a neutral arena? Kind of like the NFL does, sure they play only one game but, you get my point.

The NFL is the only league that does... NHL, NBA, MLB... All play games in the cities of the 2 finalist teams... 3 out of 4 can't be wrong. The ONLY reason the NFL does it their way is because there is no series, it's just 1 game... And it isn't fair to give one team a home game and not the other.

Are you serious. The better team over the regular season is rewarded. Why would they work that hard and not get what they deserved.

 

The better team ends up deserving homecourt advantage. That's it.

no the NBA should not have a neutral arena for the Finals. The only time the NBA plays neutral games as far as I know is when they play some Pre Season games in Non NBA Cities.

That's the reason why they choose a neutral field.

That would be a rip off to the fans, putting in a city were nobody really cares about the teams

I think they should switch everything to one game.

 

One game all the way through like the NFL

 

Series seem to ruin atmosphere. The only games that get incredible ratings are game 7s

 

So having one game would make every game a game 7.
