Thread: The NBA Regular Season Championship Belt

  1. #1

    Default The NBA Regular Season Championship Belt

    I don't know why this amuses me as much as it does but...

    Introducing the NBA Regular-Season Championship Belt

    For as much as we love the NBA — and we love the NBA — there are stretches of the regular season that can feel inconsequential. But the Regular-Season Championship Belt (RSCB) changes that. The winners of the previous season's NBA Finals start with the title. Whoever beats them takes the title from them. That team holds the championship until it loses, and so on, and so on. It's just king of the hill, played out over 82 games.
    Fun facts: The Pacers had the second longest reign with the belt last season, by these rules, and had the most 'title reigns' with 3.

    Supposedly the NFL version of this is owned by the Colts.

    Current belt holder of course is the 76ers with their defeat of Miami, though at the time I'm writing this they're losing to the Wizards.

    The heat will have their belt back in a few days.

    Sure why not?

    If the Wizards do hold on, as Kstat said, the Heat could have it back soon.

    76ers with the most improbable 2-0 start in league history to retain the rights to the belt! High drama in the District.

    So, it's based off of who beats the heat first.....in this case the Sixers. The Sixers then hold onto the title until some Team beats them and they take the title....and so on.

    Got it....so ( as cdash said ) since the Sixers are 2-0....and the Bulls beat the Sixers tomorrow....the Bulls become the Championship Belt holders.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I find it funny that last year the Heat only had it for a grand total of 1 game, their first game of the season. After that they never got it back, even with the huge win streak.

    Yep.

    The Ravens lost it to the Broncos in week 1. The Broncos held it all the way to week 7 where they lost it to the Colts. The Colts Currently hold it.

    This should be an official thing in every team sport. There should be an actual belt. Your team captain should carry the belt out of the tunnel and show it to the crowd WWE style. And when they lose they should have to hand it over to the other team's captain at the end of the game when they're all high fiving. How awesome would that be?

    Extremely. Rasheed Wallace actually did that the year after the Pistons won the title. Came out of the tunnel during their first home game wearing one of those WWE style belts. It was by far the most likeable moment of his career.

    San Antonio beat the Warriors Friday night and took the belt. They put it on the line today against the Knicks. If the Knicks win, the Hawks get the next crack at it. If SA hangs on to it, the Sixers get a shot to get it back next.

    Spurs defended it easily today.

    I think this comcept is fun and gives notoriety to games which otherwise might be forgetful.

    This is pretty cool. At any point in the season, any team could be playing for the belt. Would be really cool if it was real.

    Spurs hold on to it. To bad Utah won last night or else it would have been funny if Utah's first victory was for the belt this Friday.
