You can still do that without incorporating a "wildcard". Just take the top-8 in the Conference (with the top 2 or top-3 per Division guaranteed). I was originally just for a top-2, but then I thought,... with a top-2 only, it could sometimes work out that a Division wouldn't have a representative by Round 3 of the Playoffs; and with these large Divisions I think it would be better for each of the 4 Divisions to have a representative in the Final-4.
