    Kinda unrelated question, but why is it that the fourth worst team almost always gets either number 1 pick or moves up from 4th pick?

    The one interesting stat is the Raptors .614 (4th highest) strength of schedule ranking. After Orlando and Miami games it may be top 3.
    I noticed this as well. Part of why I said "don't let the road trip's record scare you." Be patient. Things will get better.

    Im not going to waste time being insightful on a terrible thread...His rankings come from his own biased,made up faulty stats no need for any insight or intelligent discussion...all it needs is a quick and effective dismissal...

    Thanks for that insightful comment. I just thought it was interesting since his rankings come from primarily a math/statistical standpoint.

    Yeah but it wouldn`t hurt to have more of the percentage drop our way. All Im saying is this team should make up its mind, either try hard EVERY night or at least win at home. but dont give 6 straight losses, then 4 straights wins to get my hopes up, and then shoot me again with 8 straight losses, that is effin depressing.
    Tanking is what's wrong with the NBA.

    It's a lottery. You don't have to be one of the bottom three teams to get one of the top three players. I'm pretty sure the Raptors will finish in the bottom 6 or 7, which means they'll have a pretty good chance at getting in the top three.

    The explanation of how the ranking works makes a fair bit of sense. But this is still a limited tool in estimating the successes that teams will have. For example, I wonder how a win for Utah tonight (in Miami) will effect their ranking by Mr. Hollinger? A 20th ranking for Utah was not accurate of their talent level before tonight.
