Those Playoff Complaints

After all the noise about how teams in the west were going to be so badly cheated, and inferior teams from the east going to the playoffs, it eventually boiled down to only one robbery. Golden State (or outside chance, Denver) is not going to the playoffs, despite having a much better record than Atlanta. Portland also has a better record, but not hugely so - that strikes me as normal variation rather than robbery. Plus, I don't get too worked up about teams missing the playoffs when they only go .500 down the stretch.

I still follow Al Jefferson's stats over in Minnesota. I hope the T-Wolves get Beasley or Randolph in the draft. If so, they won't be a bad team next year, though they have so many teams to climb over to make the playoffs.
