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!
