The NBA is about entertainment, not basketball, close to WWE being on the verge of having 'storylines' throughout the season. Shane Battier is the last guy I can think of who made it in and stuck around based on defense. 

But then again, his odd shaped head was a storyline all on its own.

I think Craft would do well, but he's not marketable to the tv folks.

I always felt like he built around one big post player and the point shooter(s). But it worked well with Evan Turner and then DeShaun Thomas, so who knows.

The play ins are usually for 2 16 seeds (auto qualifiers) and for 2 11 or 12 seeds (at large).  We'd be in a play in, then face a 5 or 6 seed, which isn't a bad place to make a run. LaSalle (2013, as 13 seed) and Tennessee (2014, as 11 seed) both went to the sweet sixteen from the play in round, and VCU (2011, as an 11 seed), reached the Final 4.  Each year one and only one of the play in round teams has advanced during the rest of the tourney.

scheduling gets ugly if you don't do all or nothing, unless you have the teams play home and home over the two years, despite changes in record.

I like neutral sites - perhaps a dual jamboree event (Georgia Dome and Indy with 7 games each over Labor day, one each Thu/Fri night, two each Sat & Sun, one on Mon)
