Disagree with b1gdon, agree with the others. You can have conferences for who plays who 4 times vs. 2 times during the year, but absolutely the playoffs need tweaking. Not only having Phoenix miss while ATL gets in, but it's a foregone conclusion that it's Miami and Indiana despite Indy's fall. It it's top 16, Miami and IND fall to a race for 4 or 5. Also cuts down on teams resting players the last couple of games with seeding "locked up" when you have more teams in the mix. I like that Silver is thinking outside the box to fix some of the NBA's problems.
