Also, calling 2002 "poor competition" is a pretty funny take on it, one could just as easily say it was a more balanced league among playoff contending teams. 13 teams finished between 90 and 100 points in 2002, only 5 teams did in 2000. Meanwhile 99/00 featured a true bottomfeeder in Atlanta which won only 14 games.
So we're going to ignore the whole
26 teams with a better points percentage
thing to rag on New Jersey some more - as if that establishes 2002 Detroit being in rare company?
