8 best records get in.

What you think? Good idea?

they should honestly just do a top 16 bracket mixing East and West

when is the last time a team won their division and didn't have one of the best 8 records in the conference?

this doesn't really change anything

lol exactly this. how u can u be at the top of your division but not a top 8 team in your conference.

playoffs need to head into the direction of best 16 teams regardless of conference

2006 is the closest thing I can think of. Nuggets won their division but from record they would have been the 8th seed.
