Just a note that we've unveiled a new search tool that lets you look up standings for the NBA, ABA, and BAA on any date in history, as well as team and opponent stats as of that date.
Recall those halcyon days when the 4-2 Sixers led the Atlantic Division, or marvel at the post-All Star collapses of the '04-05 season, when the 30-21 Cavaliers, 28-24 Magic, and 26-24 Lakers would all eventually miss the playoffs.
You can reach the search tool by going to www.basketball-reference.com/friv and clicking Historical Standings...
Simply enter the date on which you want to know the standings, choose the league, and click Find Standings. Teams with asterisks were eventual playoff teams.
