      Wouldn’t they be the 3 seed as a Division winner?

        Division winners can be a four seed (if a team in another division has a better record), but no lower.

    Randy Moss trade helps Vikings fantasy owners to straight cash, homie. Nice $10,000 fine.

    Let’s look at the basics 101: There are 30 NBA teams. Each team play 82 regular season games. So the total winning games will be: 30 x 82 / 2 = 1,230. You listed only 29 teams but already have move than 1,230 winning games. Before the season even start, you are already totally wrong! ;-)

      We’re very optimistic this year :)

      Doing the math, you get that he over-calculated the wins number by 44 (1274 vs. 1230) and looking at what team got that number of wins, I can only assume John Krolik has insider info on Stern’s contraction idea, with the Phoenix Suns being the team to be booted out of the NBA.

      …or it could just be John’s bad at math :-p
