Not really. I'll just take the team that went 17-1 in conference as the real champs over the one that wins the conference tourney. Always how I've viewed it

Both our conference champs though.

Any coach will tell you 4 games in 4 days is alot tougher. I felt worse when we won the reg season and lossed in the tournament a few years back. It's all about winning in MSG.

The best team would win the most games over a long stretch versus similar competition. Any team can get hot and win 4 in a row.

Any coach will tell you that getting hot for 4 days is tougher than the grind of 2.5 months of conference play and winning on the road? I doubt it

I think that could be split. Not knowing who you will play for 3 out of 4 games and the fatigue make it much tougher. I agree to disagree.

I would guess most teams that are already tourney bound can give a shit about the conference tourney. Its cool for teams on the bubble and to up your seeding but overall to me the season is far more important.
