Best Practices:

  • Well organized alphabetically by Division and Team, which makes it easy to find a specific team
  • Slider filter works well and is quick to respond
  • Patterns are easy to find
  • Good use of team colors
  • Informative tooltips

Recommended Enhancements:

  • The more years you add, the less easy it is to see the patterns
  • Instead of using a gold bar to represent championships, use a symbol or dot
  • Use a consistent font; team names would be easier to read if they were sans serif
