NBA Power Rankings

  1. NBA Power Rankings, where the Heat has finally risen to the top

    Jan 10, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where the effect of LeBron James’ decision is the difference between No. 1 and No. 30. 1. Heat (30-9). Nine wins in a row and 21 of the last 22. We said before the season this team should be a regular season powerhouse and they are proving to be. They…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Who said the Spurs were over the hill?

    Jan 3, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan,  Kobe Bryant

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where that Spurs/Celtics game Wednesday is looking like the game of the week. 1. Spurs (29-4). They beat a suddenly reeling Mavericks team as well as the Lakers this week. By the way, Tim Duncan has put up an average of 16 points and 10 rebounds a game in the…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Dallas sweeps through Florida, right to the top

    Dec 27, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where the top four teams are all 9-1 in their last 10 and probably could be ranked in any order. 1. Mavericks (23-5). They move into the top spot on the strength of their sweep of Miami and Orlando on back-to-back nights. That depth Mark Cuban touted really helps them…

  4. NBA Power Rankings, cue Glenn Frey because the Heat is on…

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where Mavs fans are going climb on me for dropping them down to five, and I get that. I just think the four teams above them are better. 1. Celtics (22-4). They’ve won 13 in a row. Remember how we have said that Doc Rivers is willing to sacrifice regular…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: There are some long winning streaks out there

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where if it were a seven-game series we’d take any of the next three teams below Dallas to come out on top, but when you win 12 in a row you get to keep the top spot. 1. Mavericks (19-4). They’ve won an even dozen in a row now. In…

  6. NBA Power Rankings, ones that will make Mark Cuban smile

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings. Dallas, Boston and Denver all on seven-games or longer winning streaks… and the Knicks could join them this week. 1. Mavericks (16-4). Winners of nine in a row, they are getting fantastic play from Tyson Chandler and Jason Kidd… which makes you wonder if they can keep it up as…

  7. NBA Power Rankings, where we have a new number one

    Nov 15, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    CPaul_Heat

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, or, how Laker fans shouldn’t panic unless they get up by 18 against the Jazz. 1. Hornets (8-0). They are not going to win 82, or 72, or even 62. But what this kind of start does is make it very likely they are playoff bound. And after watching them…

  8. NBA Power Rankings, where the preseason games don’t matter. Sort of.

    Oct 25, 2010, 11:28 AM EDT

    Lakers_lineup

    Here are our rankings to start off the season. Preseason games do not matter, which is why the Lakers are still on top of this poll. Then again, we bounced the Magic up to No. 2 because of their undefeated preseason. So we’re not consistent. We’re clearly not in midseason form yet. 1. Lakers. Former…

  9. Offseason Power Rankings

    Jul 29, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

    Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Mix together equal parts of ego and cap space to throw around, and you get one wild off-season. Everybody was making moves. There were decisions and The Decision. And at the end of it all, the Lakers are on top. Since most of the moves have shaken out, we’ve…
