I support the no conference thing to a degree, but your rankings are taking them into account right now. The Pacers/Heat are very good teams, but have the advantage of feasting on more EC teams on a weekly basis, inflating their records a few games likely.
I wouldn't mind them keeping some sor...

Well to be fair, he was likely NEVER a top 5 player. He was always in my mind a 15-25 ranked type player. Now I think he is a little lower than that, but more because he's not often a focal point. I think he's a ver...

Not sure they are elite myself, but I was going by the power rankings, so based on that, they are right on that fringe. I still don't think it's a bad loss.
In your mind, would losing to Chi @ Chi or losing to Portland @ home be a worse loss?...

Did you compare Bruce Lee bare-handed to Tyson with a wrap and gloves on? Of course when you have more padding you can punch harder

Not going to do the research, but are these odds noticeably higher than in the past? I say that because now to win a title, you need to play 15 games, and beat 2 extremely good teams in your last 2 games...basically the equivalent of back to back title games.
