Quantifying Suckitude

If I cared about the Hornets, what's good for the NBA, or gray backgrounds, I would probably read Hornets247.com more. That's not likely to happen, but it's an excellent blog, and the bloggeurs are a shining example of people who use APBR abracadabra the right way.

Ryan Schwan has posted a table ranking every teams' rise and fall in OE, and DE from 2006-07 to 2007-08. Surprise! The Bulls haven't improved offensively, or defensively. And those who feel comfortable with the Bulls' drop from 1 to 12 in DE, please realize it's been the largest defensive dropoff in the league.

EDIT: Schwan says stuff about it here.

At least we got that midget Gordon out of the starting lineup. He was killing the defense.

Not to quibble Matt, but I think BG is still playing enough minutes to influence the metric just a bit, but he obviously isn't alone in not bringing the same effort as last year...
