I haven't played Arenas yet either, but on the surface, the system seems reasonable. In other PVP games I've played, good players love nothing more than to boost their stats by playing and crushing the new guys, or the casual players. A system that rewards you fewer "points" for crushing a lousy player is fair. The NBA analogy isn't right; I'd use more of an NCAA analogy. When Duke beats Missouri State, they don't get much of a boost in the RPI. When they beat North Carolina in Chapel Hill, now that's a boost. That system encourages the Dukes of the world to play the North Carolinas of the world. Now, take an enormous grain of salt, because like I said, I have zero experience in Arena play. But, as a casual player, I personally am more interested in trying it if I don't get instantly crushed by hardcore players every time I give it a whirl.
