yep and also remember its a 100% mathematical formula. Margin of victory and SOS carry high weight in his system. They have blown out some bad teams early to have a high margin of victory.

Its kind of fun to have a purely mathematical ranking system to remove the human element.

At the end of the day its all for entertainment purposes.

Lets not pretend it's correct at the end of the season.

it's the human element missing that kinda screws it up though

like say the lakes play the celtics without kobe and pau because they are in barcelona at a funeral, celtics blow them out, a human would say it's one game it didn't matter, his formula says it matters and it will matter for the rest of the season

also his formula takes into account averages throughout a season, and those averages leave out the individual match ups that become important in the post season.

i'm pretty down on hollinger

I don't always agree with those types of ratings and this is certainly one of those times. It's so early though, so I'm not too concerned. Those rankings will change in time.

good points, there is never going to be a perfect system, human, mathmatical, or other system. Like I said before purely entertainment value. Thankfully this isnt college football where the rankings mean actual life for death!

Of course a lot of his math is predicated on 10 and 20 game segments, so its probably not as accurate until we get 20 games into the season as some of you guys have stated.

For now, the 5-3 Heat have a lead over the 8-0 Lakers, and 7-0 Hornets....makes perfect sense!
