Caption: This is a weighted graph of ball transitions across two games for the (a) Bulls, (b) Cavaliers, (c) Celtics and (d) Lakers. Red edges represent transition probabilities. Player nodes are sorted by decreasing degree close clockwise from the left. The thicker the red line, the more frequently that pass occurs during play.
