I saw this graphic that supposedly demonstrates parity in the NFL. With all the talk of how there is an unbalance of power in the NBA, how top teams continuously get better (except when their superstar leaves the team on national TV), and how bad teams just get worse, it's almost a given that Stern's league is as unbalanced as one could get.
Fortunately, numbers and pictures work on both sides of the fence. I hereby present to you a demonstration of NBA parity in one handy, raggedly elliptical graphic.
