I think this two conference thing is just too much. It makes it less entertaining as teams arent fighting to make the top four or top 8 with a bunch of other teams but rather 1 or 2 other teams in their own conference. 18 teams isn't too much for one comp as seen in the AFL and it would just be changing the game for the sake of changing the game.
There is the argument of being a traditionalist gets you left behind. But innovating for the sake of innovating doesn't exactly put you ahead. AFL and Rugby League has hardly changed yet they remain the two major codes in Australia and that is because the product is good already and has only changed when it has because it has to have had changed for obvious reasons (safety of players etc.).
They have changed the game enough for better or worse but now it is time to sit back and leave it alone because it is fine how it is.
I have never heard anyone mention the thought of 2 conferences and I haven't heard anyone agree with the idea.
that is my 2c anyway
Conferences killed super rugby and has resulted in massive imbalances most years in NBA with multiple teams from 1 conference outperforming a team that makes the finals in the other conference with more losses than wins for the season.
