What would happen if the playoffs were set up like how the final four is set up. Have the best 16 teams in the nba playing each other. If it happened in this years playoffs it would of been Dallas vs Orlando, Phoenix vs Washington and so forth. The only down side would be that there would be no eastern or western conference championship. In the 2005-06 season there were 9 western teams that had a winning record, but only 7 in the eastern conference. Is it fair for a team who has a winning record not to go in the playoffs vs a team who doesn't have a winning record just because of there conference?
