Every Warriors Team Ranked by Pythagorean Record+Strength of Schedule

Thursday, April 21, 2011

One in my series of pythagorean lists - here's every team in Warriors history ranked by regular season pythag.  The number next to the year is the pythag win total normalized for an 82 game season.  The players listed are the top in Win Shares for that season, regular season+playoffs; I've included everyone over 10, and if no one was over 10, then just the top player.  I'm changing the methodology to utilize the simple rating system from pro-basketball-reference, which adds strength of schedule to pythag. 

What's the best regular season team in Warriors history?
