Starting a new Playoffs game

Playoffs Mode allows the user to hold the NBA Playoffs at any time without first playing through the regular season in Season or Dynasty Mode. Users can create their own Playoff tree and series format (the default being the NBA's 7-7-7-7 format) as well as take control of multiple teams if they wish. As with Season and Dynasty Mode, the user can choose to simulate (and intervene) if desired. While it is not as popular as other game modes, it is useful for staging tournaments or jumping straight into the postseason, as some players feel like doing when the real NBA Playoffs begin. It has remained relatively unchanged throughout the series with the most noticeable updates being aesthetic.

By default, the brackets reflect the previous season's playoff participants and seedings. Although updating the Playoff Tree can be done quickly and easily from within the game, it is possible to edit the default bracket through DBF editing.
