[quote]because turnover and changes in football are drastic from year to year. [/quote] What are you referencing here? I hadn't mentioned the NFL since the 1st page. If you are bringing up my Saints/Falcons example, are you saying that it's alright for a sub .500 NFL team to go to the playoffs (w...

[quote]But it hasn't worked out that way fortunately. At the end of the day nobody cares that the 9-12th teams in the west should have made the playoffs. As long as there is balance among the top teams the system does what it should do. And the strength of the West in part keeps the top of the Ea...

[quote]You think fans outside of texas/OKC wouldn't watch Dallas, Houston, SAS, and OKC play it out?[/quote] Basketball fans, yes. Regular everyday watchers, probably not.

[quote]Nothing?[/quote] Easy to say. But it's a marketing nightmare for the NBA. They would lose over half the country at that point. Plus you'd have teams that already played a lot, playing in best of 7 series in prime time. There would be a ton of fatigue and disinterest. Keeping the conference...

[quote]Its a 15 year sample size at this point. The East has had a + head-to-head record vs the West one time since 2000.[/quote] So you reshuffle the entire league? How often are they going to do this? Of course, there were basically just two teams that have ruled the West/NBA for the past 15 ye...

[quote]So do away with the divisions or "groupings" as well. They're just there for travel considerations. Point is to get the best 16 in, which seems like common sense.

I don't understand the purpose of this or why it is necessary. This is like the Pacers or Cavs bitching for years that they couldn't get past the Bulls. It sucks that the Pelicans play in a tough conference. But it shouldn't be that hard to be a top 8 team out of 15 with one of the NBA's best player...

re: I always suspected Eric Gordon was the glue that held this team together - brmark70816
[quote]An undersized 6'4 215lb SG that plays solid defense and averages[/quote] Those are career averages bolstered off a great start. His numbers have been dipping down each season. I'm not even going to bring up his numbers this season. A lot will depend on how he returns next season and what h...

[quote]I think EG is worth a 7-8mil/contract even with his injury history. His shoulder injury was a bad luck injury and he played 64 games last year before we shut him down for the season. If he can stay relatively healthy, I think many teams would gamble on him with a 2 or 3yr contract. [/quote] ...

[quote]We aren't dealing with logical, intelligent people here.[/quote] Fair enough, but it makes sense and they will have to abide by the law. If not, then they get locked up.

[quote]Did they not track turnovers and shooting percentage that year? Or you just decided to leave those out? [/quote] Of course they did. You could have just looked, but I'll keep typing it all out. Davis is averaging 58%, Olajuwon 51%. Davis 1.3 topg, Olajuwon was 3.0topg. Davis barely ever ...

[quote]What history shows about putting up big numbers on an average team is irrelevant. Davis is not putting up big numbers. He is putting up unprecedented numbers. [/quote] This is just BS. They aren't unprecedented. Have you ever seen Olajuwon's career? Check out the 89-90 season. How abo...

[quote] The last guy to win it while not on a top team was Jordan in 87-88.

re: Pelicans 97 @ Nuggets 117 / Final / Official Game Thread - brmark70816
The +/- on this game are really interesting (http://espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=400578473). Its weird to see a distribution like these. Anderson played 27 minutes and had a -29. Rivers played 21 minutes and had a -24. On the Nuggets side, McGee played 19 minutes and had a +22. Normally the bench...
