15 teams per conference. Winner of each division gets an automatic playoff berth. Spots 3-8 are determined by record. This would be much more fair because the top 8 teams from both conferences make the playoffs.
Because Detroit would not want to be the only eastern time zone team in the western conference. They don't like having to go to the west coast so much during the regular season, plus maybe playing 3 playoff series against 3 west coast teams. The teams in the central time zone aren't big fans of playing in the pacific time zone so much either.
