Celts ranked #1


Only the Boston Celtics' third successive bolt out of the gates since Kevin Garnett's arrival before the 2007-08 season -- highlighted by home and away triumphs over a Miami team widely tabbed to dethrone the Celts in the East -- and Boston's unquestioned status as championship material prevented the Hornets from rising all the way to the top. Don't forget that your faithful rankings committee (of one) always factors in a team's long-term prospects (consider it as a subjective measure of overall "power") along with recent events.

1. Celtics
2. Hornets
3. Spurs
4. Lakers
5. Jazz
6. Miami
7. Dallas
8. Nuggets
9. Magic
10. Bulls

Kind of surprised you have Miami over Dallas.

I gave a homerish + to that :D
Miami never lost by more than 5 points since the starting loss to Celtics, they could have pulled a couple of games (Jazz, Hornets) and be like 8-2 right now.
Dallas looks decent.

a key fact that stein stated in his power rankings

http://espn.go.com/nba/powerrankings


The Heat's six wins, in case you missed it, came against teams (Sixers, Magic, Nets twice, Wolves and Raps) that are a combined 16-32. The teams (Celtics twice, Hornets and Jazz) that inflicted Miami's four losses: 22-5.

16-32 and you subtract the magic, thats 10-29

Yeah, I figured there was a little of that going on. There is in everyone's power rankings.

I think weekly power rankings are absolutely useless. I mean really... we know that there are at most 4 teams teams that will conted for a title this year, regardless of what their weekly power rankings are.

About time they got it right, although I like when we fly under the radar better.

I agree with this except switch Miami with Dallas and Nuggets with magic

Just proves how bogus Hollinger's rankings are. He has the Heat higher ranked than the Lakers and Celtics, and 2nd overall, even though we beat them twice, and they have 2 more losses than the C's and Lakers overall.

Yeah it reminds me of the past 2 seasons when the Cavs were on top despite having a losing record against good teams and blowing out the bad teams.

Dallas looks decent.

Dallas lost to Denver and by 1 point to Memphis. They've beaten Boston (Beat Miami), Denver, and the only team so far to beat New Orleans.

They are 7-2, and have played every game without Roddy Beaubois, and a handful without Caron Butler. Roddy Beaubois might not be a huge name to casual fans, but he will most certainly be our #2 scorer this year, and will be an All Star in the future.

Not sure I like the Spurs at 4. The Suns and Thunder were the only good teams they beat, and most of the bad teams they beat weren't very good wins. They've had trouble putting away lesser teams.

How? They've won one more game and lost head to head against the rockets.
