Dean's Final Project
This project was a visualization of the difference between a West Coast and an East Coast NBA team. The red lines represent distance traveled by the Portland Trailblazers and the Green lines represent the distance traveled by the Boston Celtics. Both teams are located in the Northern hemisphere of the United States, however, because teams are packed in closer on the Eastern conference, Eastern teams have much less distance to travel. This is one of the reasons why players prefer playing on the East Coast.
