The 8 western teams in their own conference. The other 22 teams in their own conference. Those 22 teams are the most difficult to group together into smaller units, because everyone wants to be with everyone, and nobody wants to be split from anyone, so just lump them all together.

The 8 teams out west play each other 8 or 9 times. The other 22 teams play each other 3 or 4 times. Only 1 game against each team in the other conference for both conferences.

4 teams make the playoffs out west, and they play each other in the 1st and 2nd rounds. 12 teams make it from the other group, and they play each other, 1/12, 2/11, 3/10, etc. 3 "eastern" teams, and 1 team from the west in the final 4, and they get reseeded. It's almost any team being able to play any team in the final, except for too much of the travel teams in the eastern and central time zones don't want to do, until the 3rd round of the playoffs at the earliest.
