Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans and SB Nation readers across the NBA network. Each week, we send out questions to plugged-in Rockets fans and fans of all teams across the country. Sign up here to join SB Nation Reacts.

In this week’s poll, we asked our voters league-wide to seed all of the bubble teams as if you were selecting them at-large. Here is what our voters came up with.

It’s just a little low for the Rockets for my liking. I had them at fourth on my ballot, behind the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Clippers. I’m okay with putting the Raptors over the Rockets, but not the Celtics.

I’ve never been a big proponent of a 1-16 NBA Playoff bracket, breaking up the Conference delineation, but I have to admit, just looking at that list, it might be pretty cool.

Houston would be matched up with the Dallas Mavericks in that scenario, which I would love to see. Teacher vs. student. And yes, Mavs fans, Luka Doncic patterns his game off of James Harden. I know it hurts, but just accept it.
