This data visualization is intentionally busy. This busy-ness should evoke the energy and effort that the players need to qualify for the playoffs.
The complexity in this visualization is broken-down only when the visualization user interacts with the lines, symbols and buttons, by hovering or clicking.
This D3.js (v4)-based interactive data visualization was developed by Ross Waring, Vividdata Visualization Inc. www.vividdatav.com.
