Default Division shake up?

Just a simple question. Given the change adopted this season for how teams qualify for the playoffs, is it time to make some changes to the divisions to make a little more sense geographically? While this isn't absolutely perfect, is it perhaps a little better that the current structure? (Also, forgive me if this has already been brought up. I don't check in all that often)

Northwest:

Portland
Utah
Minnesota
Milwaukee
Sacramento

Pacific:

Golden State
Lakers
Clippers
Phoenix
Spurs

Southwest:

Denver
OKC
Dallas
Houston
Memphis

Atlantic:

Boston
New York
Brooklyn
Philadelphia
Washington

Central:

Cleveland
Indiana
Detroit
Toronto
Chicago

Southeast:

Atlanta
New Orleans
Miami
Orlando
Charlotte

Current (from reddit):





IMO they should a few moves to have some balance (travelling wise):
Bucks move to Seattle (green.. ray allen connection)
Grizzlies move to Las Vegas
Timberwolves given to the East



Then:
WEST

NorthWest: Portland, Seattle, Jazz, Kings and Nuggets

Pacific: Lakers, Clippers, Warriors, Las Vegas and Suns

SouthWest: Thunder, Spurs, Mavericks, Rockets and Pelicans

EAST

Central: Timberwolves, Bulls, Pacers, Pistons and Cavaliers

Atlantic: Raptors, Knicks, Sixers, Nets and Knicks (no changes)

SouthEast: Magic, Heat, Hawks, Bobcats and Wizards (no changes)

Putting the Spurs in the same division as the Warriors and Clippers?

Good point about competitive levels. I hadn't put too much thought to it, thinking that all teams have their eventual ups and downs.

On second thought.. I don't think the NBA will move a team to Las Vegas anytime soon (given the whole Odom incident). Too many mentally weak players.

first of all switch Portland and Suns.

That is the only change that is possible to do.
the rest is impossible.
