Technical Fouls = Wins in the NBA?
Here's top six teams that got the most technical fouls:
- Boston Celtics
- Los Angeles Lakers
- Orlando Magic
- Denver Nuggets
- Charlotte Bobcats
- Cleveland Cavaliers
- New Jersey Nets
- Minnesota Timberwolves
- New York Knicks
- Philadelphia 76ers
- Oklahoma City Thunder
- New Orleans Hornets
I that the teams that got the most technical fouls last season averaged 54 wins, which translates to a winning percentage of almost 66%. On the other hand, the bottom six teams averaged only 28 wins, with a winning percentage of 34%. It's also worth noting that all the top six teams all made the playoffs, whereas in the bottom six, only the up and coming Oklahoma City Thunder made the post-season.
The trend suggests that the really competitive teams contest a lot of calls and complain a lot. It also paints the picture that teams that complain a lot will win almost twice as much as the meeker teams.
So, if your team rags the officials a lot, be happy. It means they're on the league's better lot.
