  1. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still sitting pretty, Heat slip

    Feb 14, 2011, 1:21 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, every team seemed to have a nice win and an ugly loss, balancing the karmic scales. 1. Spurs (45-9, Last Week #1). They are 5-2 on the rodeo road trip so far (still to come the Nets and Bulls). Their one loss this week was just one of those game…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: How would you feel about a Spurs/Celtics NBA finals?

    Jan 31, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kobe Bryant

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where we’re thinking that the finals could be Spurs and Celtics because no teams are executing anywhere near their level right now in crunch time. 1. Spurs (40-7). They are now 7.5 games ahead of the second place Lakers in the Western Conference (and 4 ahead of Boston for the…

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. NBA Power Rankings, where that Lakers/Heat finals seems a long ways away

    Nov 29, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings. Right now the top four teams on this list are playing the best basketball, but if the playoffs started today I’d pick teams 5 and 6 to meet in the finals. However, this is November, so we’ll worry about the playoffs later. 1. Spurs (14-2). They were down 17 at…

  6. NBA Power Rankings, where the Spurs, they jingle, jangle, jingle

    Nov 22, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, or, how the West looks better than the East right now by a long shot. 1. Spurs (11-1). Distraction? What are you talking about? Right now the Spurs are focused and playing the best basketball in the association — and the offense is really clicking with Parker dishing a little…

  7. NBA Power Rankings, where the top still looks like last year’s finals

    Bryant_Gasol_high5

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where nothing confuses us more than the Suns playing at the 20th fastest pace in the league. 1. Lakers (3-0). Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol have been the best front line in basketball through the first week. Kobe’s knee isn’t right, but it hasn’t mattered yet. Oh, and we told…

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

    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…
