I think they should eliminate conferences all together. Have 5 divisions with 6 teams each. Playoff positioning would come from the top 2 teams from each division plus the 6 next best teams. Then have the best team play team #16 and so on. The regular season would have each team play the other teams in their division 6 times, and 2 games each against the teams from the other divisions. While that would shrink the regular season to 78 games it would be inherently fair for all teams and would reward the teams that do well in the regular season. It would make the regular season and the division races more meaningful and eliminate the the way teams are listed for the playoffs now by conference.
My apologies if a format like this was listed before.
