What NBA team was the greatest ever? For basketball fans, that question can lead to widespread debate. Sports journalist and basketball enthusiast Kyle Wright has created a new and unique computer formula to rank every team in NBA history. Coining it as the POST formula, Wright assigns ratings to all NBA teams based on how they stack up to other comparable teams during any year-from the number of wins and losses to points scored and points allowed. The result is a complete ranking that takes you from number one to number 1,153. Wright brings to light other game-stopping details that sports lovers will appreciate, including: The most dominant teams to ever play The teams with brilliant records but no titles The unimpressive teams that won championships The teams that lost the most through the years The NBA from Top to Bottom is for every diehard basketball fan. It achieves nothing but net as it comprehensively identifies and profiles the best and worst teams ever to grace the court.

I feel that the book would have been better if the author had included an explanation of his system and how he arrived at his numbers.
The author clearly put much work into this book and I would like to hear more from him.
Nonetheless, it is surprising how much can be gathered from the statistical data Kyle Wright gives in "The NBA from Top to Bottom". Using a simple but effective system to rank every team in the National Basketball Association and its predecessor the Basketball Assocation of America, Wright gives what may be the most elaborate ranking of teams in the history of any professional sport. His system is so simple that those who know even less about professional basketball than I did before reading the well-known "Short Supply of Tall People" will be able to understand it, and even without detailed knowledge I know it works for basketball as it would not for other sports where winning margins are a far more vital factor. There are some fascinating surprises - not only I would say with the top and bottom ten teams and the handful highlighted in the book - but it makes the statistically curious like myself want to devour it even more than I would otherwise. "The NBA from Top to Bottom" would have been even better for comparisons between teams similar in certain ways - "hard luck" teams that had a very bad year due to injuries and the various really bad runs by teams like the clippers (only one discussed), Mavericks, Timberwolves, Warriors and post-Jordan Bulls in modern times. These, however, are small quibbles with an impressive reference work for the sports reader.
