Power rankings

Week 4

 

 

30)  Oklahoma City Thunder- previous rank, 30, week record 0-4, year record 1-13.  We all knew this team was going to be terrible….but not this terrible.

 

29) Washington Wizards- previous rank, 27, week record 0-4, year record 1-10.  Arenas was quoted as saying this week “it’s cool that were losing look at what happened to the Spurs that one year and they got Duncan”  Wow and they’re paying this guy franchise money.  One problem there Gil, who is that good in college ball right now?

 

28)  Los Angeles Clippers- previous rank, 29, week record 1-3, year record 2-11.  No idea why this team is this bad, but maybe with their recent trade for Z-Bo it will give them wins?

 

27) Minnesota Timberwolves- previous rank, 28, week record 1-2, year record 2-9.  Had a decent week but Glen Taylor was quoted as saying “Wittman’s job is safe”, wow, seriously?  Sorry Wolves fans.

 

26) Charlotte Bobcats- previous rank, 24, week record 0-4, year record 3-9.  What a terrible week, and they think they can land Mcdyess!

 

25) Memphis Grizzlies- previous rank, 25, week record 1-2, year record 4-9.  Got off to a hot start in the first two weeks, the next two weeks- typical/expected Grizz basketball.

 

24) Sacramento Kings- previous rank, 21, week record 1-3, year record 5-9.  Despite their record, they are a really tough team.

 

23) Golden State Warriors- previous rank, 22, week record 1-1, year record 5-7.  Great trade to land Crawford and if their youth can keep playing better than expected, this team will surprise.

 

22) Indiana Pacers- previous rank, 20, week record 1-2, year record 5-7.  Expected record after 4 weeks.

 

21) Chicago Bulls- previous rank, 15, week record 1-3, year record 6-8.  Dipped below .500, must stay at or better to remain a factor.

 

20) Dallas Mavericks- previous rank, 26, week record 4-0, year record 6-7.  Still have a bad record, but if they continue with weeks like this, they’ll be right back in the race.

 

19) San Antonio Spurs- previous rank, 23, week record 3-1, year record 6-6.  Great week and Ginobili is expected back next week or possibly the end of this week.

 

18) Philadelphia 76ers- previous rank, 16, week record 1-1, year record 6-6.  .500 is not good enough for this team; they could have kept last year’s team and had the same record.

 

17) Toronto Raptors- previous rank, 18, week record 2-2, year record 6-6.  Read Philadelphia .

 

16) New Jersey Nets- previous rank, 19, week record 2-1, year record 6-6.  Unlike 18 and 17 .500 is better than expected for this team and as long as Harris keeps doing what he’s doing, it will continue.

 

15) Milwaukee Bucks- previous rank, 17, week record 2-2, year record 7-8.  As long as they continue this and stay at .500 all or most of the year, will contend for a playoff spot and oh yeah not to mention Redd is still out.

 

14) New York Knicks- previous rank, 8, week record 1-3, year record 7-6.  These past weeks trades mean one thing, their preparing for 2010, but can the fans in New York suffer for 2 more years and especially since they were off to such a great start?

 

13) Miami Heat- previous rank, 14, week record 2-1, year record 7-5.  As long as Wade continues to but up his points totals and plays tenacious D, they Heat will win.

 

12) New Orleans Hornets- previous rank, 12, week record 2-1, year record 7-5.  Has midnight struck for this Cinderella team of a year ago?  If you think about it, it makes no sense because Paul’s stats are the same, but the rest of the teams are down.

 

11) Portland Trailblazers- previous rank, 11, week record 2-2, year record 8-6.  Unlike last year, if they keep this up they will be in the playoffs.

 

10) Denver Nuggets- previous rank, 13, week record 3-1, year record 8-5.  I guess there not that good after getting blown out by the Lakers.

 

9) Atlanta Hawks- previous rank, 6, week record 2-2, year record 8-5.  With Smith still out this team is getting pretty predictable on whom to stop.

 

8) Detroit Pistons- previous rank, 4, week record 1-2, year record 8-4.  Still doing enough to be a great team.

 

7) Houston Rockets- previous rank, 10, week record 3-1, year record 9-5.  Impressive week despite injuries to Mcgrady and Ming, once Battier comes back it will be a huge lift.

 

6) Utah Jazz- previous rank, 9, week record 3-1, year record 9-5.  Cannot shake this injury bug, they get Kirilenko back but lose Boozer and still don’t have Deron and Harpring.

 

5) Orlando Magic- previous rank, 7, week record 3-1, year record 9-4.  Carrying over last year’s success.

 

4) Phoenix Suns- previous rank, 5, week record 2-2, year record 9-4.  Still continuing to shine (no pun intended) despite a declining Nash with no backup, currently and a new style of offense.

 

3) Cleveland Cavaliers- previous rank 3, week record 2-1, year record 10-3.

2) Boston Celtics- previous rank 2, week record 3-0, year record 12-2

1) Los Angeles Lakers- previous rank 1, week record 3-0, year record 10-1.

     The top 3 remains unchanged 2 weeks in a row, makes sense don’t it?
