How I would do it:

 

-No conferences. Just 5 divisions of 6.

-Teams play 4 games each against division foes and 2 against everyone else for a total of 78 games. 

-Top 16 records make playoffs. 

 

Atlantic

Boston

Brooklyn

New York

Philadelphia

Toronto

Washington

 

Southeast

Atlanta

Charlotte

Memphis

Miami

New Orleans

Orlando

 

Central

Chicago

Cleveland

Houston

Oklahoma City

San Antonio

Utah

 

Pacific

Golden State

L.A. Clippers

After watching the NHL All-Star game; I think 4 divisions like this would be an opening to having a 3 on 3 BB tourney for the NBA All-Star game.
