Hello there !!! Time to make a change.... A suggestion of epic proportions but still easy to do. Current Playoffs are decided on the top 8 teams in each conference after the regular season with a few deciders in place for teams with even records. My diabolical suggestions. A) Top 6 teams from each conference will qualify based on regular season record / deciders. B) The last 4 teams are determined on the basis of better regular season record / deciders overall. These 4 teams could be from any conf. East or west. Allowing only the best. C) It does not end there. Now you have your 16 playoff teams only. D) Playoffs seeding of teams is determined by their overall records against the other playoff teams only. Their regular season record can now go to the bin. Eg. Miami has a record of 24-18 against these teams and the Spurs have a 26-18 record against the playoff teams. Spurs take top seed. If teams have a similar record then deciders come into play. E) Playoff matchups would be similar to a 8 team playoffs. So 1 plays 16, 2 plays 15 and finally 8 plays 9. How does this sound ??? Many more questions.... let's find The Answer.
