Shouldn't in cases where there are 4 and 4 teams in the Western Conferences, they keep them together? We could potentially have only 50% of the games be inter-conference in the first round if there's a double crossover.
The bigger problem would be this:

PACIFIC

A - 115 pts
B - 110 pts
C - 107 pts
D - 102 pts
E,F,G - 70 ptsish

Central
Z - 110 pts
Y - 100 pts
X - 100 pts
W - 85 pts
T, U, V - 70 ptsish

Under the proposal, the division leader with the most points will play the wildcard team with the least amount of points, and the other division leader will play the other wildcard team.

This would mean that Team A (115 pts) will play Team W (85 pts) which is fair. The major problem is that Team Z (110 pts) will play Team D (102 pts) while Team Y (110 pts) gets to play Team X (who also has 110 pts). Team Z, the team who should have an advantage over Team Y because they have more points, will play the team with more points than Team Y's opponent.

Team A (115) vs Team W (85)
Team B (110) vs Team C (107)

Team Z (110) vs Team D (102)
Team Y (100) vs Team X (100)
