Not a knock on the Lakers but more so just emphasising how close the Bulls are to the better teams in the East. Just another reason why Im fully on board the Zach Lavine hype train for him to earn an All-Star selection this season. Its actually really surprising to me to see how the East standings are stacking up right now. - The Hornets and Knicks are closer to the 4 seed than Nets are to the 1 seed and than the Bucks are to the 2 seed. - The *extremely disappointing* Wizards are just 1.5 games back of last seasons NBA finalist Miami Heat. What are some other crazy standing oddities you can observe so far? https://www.basketball-reference.com/leagues/NBA_2021.html
people forget that the wizards started the 16-17 season 7-13. they went 42-20 to end the season. they started worse this year (6-17) but have won 4 straight now. maybe they make a run who knows
What do the 2017 wizards have to do with the 2021 wizards?
it shows that it’s not unheard of for a talented team with star talent to get out of an early season hole
John wall was a man possessed that year good lord
We have lost a ton of games by 5 points or less too
I think this just shows how mediocre the East has been...for the last 2 decades
