OK, everyone hates to love arguing about the playoff structure, and that's fine. But if we want to help, here's my idea from today. Give the top team in each conference the choice of who they play in the first round. By earning the choice you can pick the team you match-up against best, or give yoru biggest rival the most difficult team to fight. This would give incentive to win the conference, something that right now doesn't seem to motivate teams or fans.
