Thats why they have conferences, keeps travel expenses down including in the playoffs. The odd year that an LA or a BOS or a NY misses the playoffs despite having a top-16 record doesnt offset the cost of having east and west coast teams travel back and forth all throughout the playoffs every year.
Even though I agree from a competitive standpoint itd be better.
