Still don't like it though. If Chicago, for example, wins the Regular Season West, they shouldn't have to play LA in the 1st Round.
Definite disadvantage travel wise for the Western conference since the east would have a guarantee of being in the same time zone.
Just make it a league wide table so any division can end up playing any otehr diviision. Maybe top two in each division fill spots 1 to 8 then 9 to 16 the next best 8 teams. IIRC there was a season or two where it was a 1 to 16 format.
