NBA Power Rankings
As an addendum to my last post, below are my "NBA Power Rankings".
The Rankings are based exclusively upon the percent by which each team is either above or below the NBA team and opposition Win Score average of 42.7. Of course, a score above 42.7 on "Team Win Score" and below 42.7 on "Opposition Win Score" are the basis points for each measurement.
Also, I adjusted the percentages to account slightly for strength of schedule, because the Eastern Conference numbers, as you might expect, are much worse on "Team Win Score" and slightly worse on "Opposition Win Score" than the Western Conference numbers. Thus most Eastern teams are adjusted downward, as are some of the Western teams that have played schedules that have so far been split more evenly between conferences.
