It like somebody comparing the HR total of Babe Ruth to Mark Mcgwire.
Somebody pointing out that everybody hit HRs of the pitching that Mcgwire faced and then somebody else claiming that I cant point that out because its across eras.
It so silly.
Hardly silly at all....your logic says the 91 Bulls were a worse defensive team than the 2003 Wizards....your logic says that the 2003 Spurs were a worse offensive team than the 1987 New Jersey Nets....PLEASE KID, don't talk to me about what's SILLY FOOL.
Your problem is your being a math nerd who thinks numbers > context....you can't have one without the other if your gonna make a cross-era examination.
With NO CONTEXT AT ALL....i can easily say that the 1987 Nets, who were in the bottom 5 offensive teams that year, would be a top 10 offensive team in 2001, right there with the Sacramento Kings.....TRUE or FALSE??
The 24-58 Nets....can they go from being a bottom feeder offensive team in 1987 to top-10 offensive team in 2001??? USE YOUR HEAD....do you know basketball or do you just know numbers???
