We've had a couple weeks to start seeing teams flesh themselves out a little, here's where some of the rankings are as of today:

Marc Stein's: http://espn.go.com/nba/powerrankings/_/week/3

1. Spurs
2. Pacers
3. Heat
4. Clippers
5. Wolves
6. Warriors
7. Blazers
8. Thunder
9. Bulls
10. Rockets

Tank Commanders: Kings > Bucks > Jazz

CBS Sports: http://www.cbssports.com/nba/powerrankings

1. Pacers
2. Warriors
3. Spurs
4. Wolves
5. Heat
6. Thunder
7. Clippers
8. Blazers
9. Mavs
10. Bulls

Tank Commanders: Kings > Celtics > Jazz

Hollinger (Computer Rankings): http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/powerrankings

3. Warriors
4. Pacers
5. Clippers

Who's too high, too low? Which teams are overachieving?

Hollinger's are kinda pointless so early in the season.

I think Stein's opinions (remember, that's all this is...sans Hollinger's, obviously, so save the outrage!) are a bit more similar to mine right now than Moore's.

The Wolves shouldn't be as high as they are...that would be my only critique I guess. Hard to get too passionate about these things this early. I guess OKC was an impressive win, even without Westy, but besides that they haven't done anything to suggest they're one of the 5 best teams...point differential and all.

Brooklyn bottom 10 in all rankings would've been laughed at 3 weeks ago, as would the Wolves in the top 5. Go figure. There's probably some regression coming, but if they can stay healthy - with the way Martin plays in this offense next to Rubio - they can be a top 10 team.

Wolves man, very intriguing team when Kevin Love is healthy. He's such a talent, MVP type talent. Really hoping he stays healthy this season.

Clippers still haven't played a complete game yet. It's weird seeing them playing poorly and being ranked top 7 or better. I'd usually be stoked if they made top 20.

Nice to see my Mavs in the top 10 when everyone was doubting us!

Hate to say it, but Wolves might make the playoffs. Now they did lose that game against Den where everyone expected them to win.

Nice to see my Mavs in the top 10 when everyone was doubting us!Yeah because some power rankings after 10 games mean sooooo much.Just like Monta Ellis becoming an efficient monster after 3 good games.
