Aviously

Because, aviously…

Let’s check in on two of the teams I follow, and see which one I’m prouder for. We’ll call them “Team A” and “Team B” for now.

Team A: Finished the 2015 Season 1st in Division and 1st in the League
Team B: Finished the 2015 Season 1st in Division and 6th in the League

Team A: In 2015 got eliminated in the 3rd round of the Playoffs
Team B: In 2015 got eliminated in the 1st round of the Playoffs

Team A: 73% of players returned for the 2016 season
Team B: 33% of players returned for the 2016 season
(Counting all players who played at least 12% of games in previous year)

Team A: Lost only 2 starters from 2015–>2016 seasons
Team B: Kept only 2 starters from 2015–>2016 seasons

Based on everything we know so far:
Team A: Should be ready to try again for a great run
Team B: Should be ready for a rebuilding year

So now let’s see how they actually did/doing in the 2016 year…

Team A: Finished the 2016 Season 3rd in Division and 9th in the League
Team B: Finished the 2016 Season 2nd in Division and 13th in the League

Team A: Has won no awards yet, and aren’t expected to win any
Team B: One player won the League award of “Most Improved Player”

Team A: Got eliminated in the first round of the Playoffs in 5 games
Team B: Is currently playing in the first round, and is tied 2-2 after 4 games

For those that haven’t figured it out yet, and are still reading this:
Team A is the New York Rangers
Team B is the Portland Trail Blazers

Can you tell which one I’m prouder for? #RipCity
