    I don't really care about the cross conference stuff at all. I'd rather get shorter series to add a little more randomness. And to add a little more lets just include every team in the playoffs.

    If they do make a change, the only one that makes sense to me is to banish conferences + divisions all together and make it an open league where the playoffs are for the top 16 teams period. I see very little reason not to do this, as they could still curtail the schedules to allow teams to play those closest to them more frequently than otherwise.
    Considering how much these guys make now and also considering how many flights a day happens to me this would be no issue unless you are having GSW playing the Knicks like 6 times a year or something.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    I've got a pretty unique fix too if you like parity. Move all the teams to Montana. No market advantages, almost no travel, play each team an equal number of times. Teams still rep current nba cities but all play in butt**** Montana. Admit it it's not half bad.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    The added travel would be a real problem for a lot of teams. Particularly the ones on the bottom of the chart that are not used to it.

    And that is based on minimizing travel for west coast teams as it is. The North South thing is a non-starter.

    They could all just stay home and play NBA2k against each other.

    I've got a unique idea too. Everyone just get over it.
