2018 NBA Playoff Predictions

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Every year at this time I talk about Simple Rating System (SRS) the pro-basketball-reference rating system; for the past 3 years its been in conjunction with the historic stretch put together by the Warriors.  Here's every team in NBA history with an SRS over 10:

1971 Bucks -won title
1996 Bulls - won title
1972 Lakers - won title
2017 Warriors - won title
1997 Bulls - won title
1972 Bucks - lost to that Lakers team in playoffs
2016 Warriors - lost in the finals
2016 Spurs - lost in the playoffs
1992 Bulls - won title
2015 Warriors - won title

10 teams, 3 of them the last 3 Warriors teams.

This year's Warriors SRS is 5.79.  This team is not those teams is my point.  This looks less like year 4 of the dynasty and more like a step back.
