How Many Miles does Each NBA team travel during the season?

Filed under: Uncategorized — wwinston @ 12:15 pm

I am excited to be teaching a Sports and Math class at the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston. I have developed many cool spreadsheets for the class. One of them computes the total distance each team travels during the season. The results are shown below. It might surprise you that Minnesota travels the most miles. The reason probably is that Minnesota isĀ  one of the more eastern (and certainly more northern!) teams in the Western ConferenceĀ  so none of their Western Conference road games are very close. Golden State and Portland travel the 2nd and 3rd most miles, while the Cavs travel the least. At least Cleveland leads in something!
