If ever there was a year to make the argument for reseeding the NBA playoffs, this is the one.
Let's say the Chicago Bulls, the No. 1 seed, get jettisoned by the No. 8 Philadelphia 76ers, a series the Sixers now lead 3-2 heading back to Philly.
That would leave the Miami Heat, who advanced to the second round Wednesday night with a 106-94 win against the New York Knicks, as the highest seed remaining in the Eastern Conference.
