Should the NBA get rid of conferences? (video)

Recently, we reported on upcoming NBA rule changes coming next season.

Among the things that are changing, we also told you about the proposal to eliminate conferences, due in part to the recently-exacerbated imbalance between the Eastern and Western Conferences. Such a move, which would group all teams in the playoffs 1-16 based on regular-season record, is supported by those who think it would lead to a more interesting playoff picture, but opposed by those who realize just how many teams in the East might not make the grade. The above video shows the cast of ESPN's The Jump debating this issue - how do you feel about it? Make your case in the comments section below.
