      As a follow up to the rankings of runner up teams i thought i'd post
      the expected wins vs. actual of nba champs since the shot clock came
      in. (lockout spurs are projected to 82 season). the last column
      (rank) is the team's ranking in point differential.

      seems like there is a distinct lack of dominant teams in the time
      between jordan's retirement and from 73-80 (or from wilt's
      retirement to magic/bird). you'll notice after the knicks and
      lakers of 73 got old the teams that filled the void (with the
      exception of the blazers were not that good). generally no one
      seemed to win a championship without a differential of at least +5.
      but the 70s celtics, warriors, bullets, and sonics were well these
      parameters. i wonder if it was a combination of losing so many
      stars of the 60s and early 70s (walt, reed, wilt, russell, sam
      jones, oscar, elgin, west etc) and the aba taking some top notch
      talent.

      a couple other wierd anomalies were the 94-95 rockets and the 00-01
      lakers. both really did not outscore opponents by so much. but that
      rocket team got drexler over halfway thru the year changing the
      character of the team. the lakers of 00-01 were fighting a lot
      (kobe v. shaq) i guess it affected them in the regular season but
      their three record and playoff performance that seem to indicate a
      one year fluke.
