      Yes, it's supposed to work that way. But Chicago has 4 of these 17
      players; Orlando, Boston, and Atlanta, 2 apiece. That's an "extra"
      6 rookies making an impact for the East. If the Bulls (presumably),
      traded players in exchange for extra picks, then they may not have
      any net gain despite acquiring extra rookies.

      15 of the 17 best rookies are in the Eastern Conference. This bodes
      well for future parity.
