Post-Mortem Results IV: Rising/Treadmill/Waning 

Post#1 » by ElectricMayhem » Thu Jul 22, 2021 1:59 pm

Thank you all for your participation in the RealGM Post-Mortem Series. This is the fourth and final segment of the result of the polls. The results are definitely not perfect. Some polls got nearly 100 respondents. Others, less than 10. That's definitely an issue. Still, you get a good general idea of how RealGM felt about the direction of teams. The number represents the percentage of people who voted teams were rising, treadmill, or waning.

Post-Mortem Results II: Coaching Confidence Meter

At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

The Pacers being universally considered a treadmill team is exactly what I expected to see

You should have replaced treadmill with maintaining or staying the same.
The 2010's will be known for NBA collusion just as the 2000's were known for MLB doping.
Glorifying either is glorifying anti-competition.

It's a fair point. Treadmill has a negative connotation, but of course some teams are likely to remain at the same level in a good way (Milwaukee, for example).

make a fourth category because there is a definite distinction between treadmill and maintain

In fairness, the Pacers poll had about 4 voters.

I can’t really argue with that assessment, excepting that I think a treadmill/contender binary is overly simplistic, nor do I believe every team not exactly stacked to contend should immediately blow it up and tank.

There's only one trophy every year, a league where that's seen as the only worthwhile goal would be horrible to watch since every team without a top 5 player would be blown up.
