And you CAN have two divisional teams in the conference final, but not the two teams that finish 1-2 in the division...which is why Brooks is wrong.
Only a wild card can play in the divisional final against a team in their own division.
That makes sense. A wildCard team can throw a wrench into things and force a divisional Conference Final, but short of that you'll basically have each division send one team to the Conference final.
