Not much has changed at the top of our power rankings this week. Lebron James and his Cavaliers continue to take the league by storm. For the fourth straight week the are sitting at the #1 spot and are working on distancing themselves from the other elite teams in the league. Things at the bottom did get a little interesting this week, as two new teams entered the top ten. To view the complete rankings click here. For now here is a brief preview of what to expect:
- With Kobe “injured” the Lakers continue to sit at the #2 spot, hopefully for their sake they can win without him for a few games.
- The Magic and Hawks come in at #3 and #4 respectively. These teams are very close and it was hard to choose one over the other. In this case the records don’t lie, we went with the Magic over the Hawks.
- Although the Nuggets bring to the table a better record we decided to put the Celtics over them this week. I’m sure this will cause some controversy. We looked at what the C’s did this past week (without Paul Pierce) and that was enough for us to put them over the top.
- As I mentioned above, two new teams entered the top ten this week, the Suns and the Raptors. This is the first time we’ve seen the Raptors here, and it’s been awhile since the Suns last visited the top ten.
