  2. Jason J Says:

    The East has 4 of the top 6 teams and then none of the next 6 teams.

  3. Neil Paine Says:

    I wonder where the 2011 East ranks among the most top-heavy conferences ever.

    (If only there was a blog where questions like those are answered! :)

  4. Jason J Says:

    I bet 1996 is up there. Can't remember anyone else (could check but that would be cheating), but Chicago and Orlando crushed it that year - and Shaq missed a lot of games too.

  5. Gil Meriken Says:

    I wish it would become a common practice to show the previous season's rankings at the same point in time, for reference, whenever rankings are shown. Can I see them, pretty please?

  6. Matt Says:

    Hey Neil, Could you write a blog post explaining where the 2011 East ranks among the most top-heavy conferences ever? Thanks ;)
