So point still stands that not all teams that end bad, started bad.
I have no idea if the statistical oddity works in reverse (those numbers would be interesting as well). The article only makes the "start bad, very likely to end bad" claim. Also, it never claims "all," only most. Furthermore, the numbers from the shortened season were excluded since everyone was at home twiddling their thumbs on November 1st.
