in the NBA playoffs, some repeated stats
MIA hasn't lost back to back games in the playoffs since the formation of the Big 3
MIA hasn't lost a home playoff game this year, etc...
being a US sports fan, I'm use to stats being more relevant to the club, than geography
you wouldn't hear those same examples give in the narrative of
NBA teams in FLA, or NBA teams in the Eastern Conference, etc...
the stats are more relevant to the team
i.e., DIV's record when giving up the first goal is _____
that's why I found it strange
Bob Bradley's experience aside, the danger is putting that label on an entire continent
especially when the team that your applying that stat to, is actually the team that has overcome that stat
so yeah, just strange
would you hear a stat like that for North America? I couldn't see there being a parallel between MEX and the US that folks wouldn't think was a reach.
