Adam Silver: Changing NBA playoff structure 'not at top of agenda right now'

There has been talk for years about disregarding conferences when it comes to the NBA playoffs and seeding the teams 1-16 based on records.

The idea resurfaced recently, after All-Stars Paul George and Jimmy Butler were traded to the Western Conference, making it even more formidable than it has been for the past few years. NBA commissioner Adam Silver, however, said at Wednesday's Board of Governors press conference that there are no plans to make any changes to playoff seeding. Via ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk:

NBA commissioner Adam Silver says that despite more stars heading to the West and power imbalance, the NBA won't make changes to the conferences or playoff structure. Silver said NBA examined the process two years ago and opted not to make changes. Silver admits NBA could revisit issue but it is "not at the top of agenda right now."

Last season the Western Conference had three teams with 55 or more wins (including the Warriors and Spurs, who each had more than 60), while the Eastern Conference didn't have any. The Celtics, who earned the No. 1 seed in the East with 53 wins, would have been the No. 4 seed in the West.
