The most "logical" way is by seed, the way it's done. Pretty much any bracket-based system works that way. Otherwise, what happens if the two strongest teams happen to come from one division?
Above all, though, the "best" way is whatever way you decided at the beginning of the season. If not, it's whatever ESPN puts in place. Now is absolutely not
the time to be monkeying around with your league settings.
