    Hey Neil, how about a metric to estimate number of wins while accounting for strength of schedule?

    Think that's possible? For example how many wins would Cleveland have if they didn't have a soft schedule, or Golden State without the tougher schedule? I guess calculating it against the league's cumulative w-l average or something like that?

  2. Ricardo Says:

    Off topic, but on the franchise index page, could you list the all-time leaders in every category?

  3. Donna Says:

    Also off topic, but I'd like to talk to Neil Paine for an article I'm doing for the Tampa Tribune on a basketball player from the late '70s. Please contact me at my email address or my office phone at (813) 259-8264. If I'm out, please leave a contact number. Thanks!
