1. This is because every series is a best-of-7, allowing owners to maximize their revenue at the time of the year when the players are essentially playing for nothing. Also, you can only have so many back-to-back dates in the playoffs with the extra wear and tear that's incurred.

2. Suggestions on what you'd do differently to make it shorter?
