    Spurs and Grizzlies are too high to start.

    I feel like the Cavs are too high with all the injuries.
    The Baker has come. Believe the hype.

    Yeah, they're our starting backcourt. Plus Kevin Love is freshly recovered and may not be 100%, and Lebron has been having back issues after his recent injection.

    And Moz's knee is "bothering" him, and TT hasn't been with the team, and ...

    Still, it's not how you start that matters.

    I think most teams would be much worse if their starting backcourt went missing. I'm not saying the Cavs should be ranked 10, but I'm not sure we're better than teams like the Clippers without them.

    Edit: You can argue the Clippers are better even if the Cavs are fully healthy. So how is it goofy to suggest that they should be higher on the power rankings when we're missing our starting backcourt?

    Edit edit: I'm assuming week 0 power rankings are how teams are projected right now before the start of the season, not how teams will eventually progress. That's for future power rankings.
