They have them #1 over The undefeated Lakers and Hornets, and the 5-1 Magic. The Heat are 5-2 how are they #1?

this threads gonna get closed but i got no idea how the rankings were made. can't tell if current records are taken into considering or preseason rankings too. the heat are obviously the far superior team but the warriors and heat are 5-2 and the heat are #1 while the warriors are in the bottom half. im not saying the warriors should be anywhere near the heat but there are also 1 and 2 win teams above the warriors.

It's Hollinger.

I don't agree with the rankings since their are 2 undefeated teams who should be #1 and #2.. But that's how his system works.

ESPN wants to create controversy. They're not in the business of being right, they're in the buisness of getting people to check their websight, watch their channel, and buy their magazines. Stirring the pot does nothing but boost their ratings, and the amount of money advertisers will pay for a 30 second spot.

Not to single out this example, it happens all the time, year round.

I don't get why people constantly make a huge ****ing deal about Hollinger's rankings. He's made it completely clear that this is based on stats. Stats will not always tell you what you want to hear.

The season only just started, wait until about 20 games in for the rankings to take true form.

tl;dr be ****ing patient, and stop BAWWing.

well you're 5-2 and the Hornets and the Lakers are both undefeated. Stats don't matter in this situation.

It's actually not Hollinger kissing up to the Heat, it's Hollinger hating on the Lakers. He barely hides the fact that he DESPISES the Lakers. The guy is an :censored:hole.

go back to when I first joined and actually he has only been using the system since 2008 I believe.

Any system that has a team that has won only 1 game in the top ten is bull ****.

If someone wants to use these rankings to start a baiting free thread please go ahead. This one never had a chance the way it was started.
