To qualify to vote, you must read through the argument for the claim first. After that, your comment must have reasoning behind your vote to justify your position, a simple "yes" or "no" with generalized reasoning will not suffice as a vote.

Fact: outside of the 1969 Celtics and 1995 Rockets, every other team had a top 3 seed (and record) in their conference<. Both teams won the championship in the previous year, 1968 and 1994 respectively^.
