NBA Power Rankings (FEB. 23rd)

Bet On NBA Basketball

Each week during the heart of the NBA season, and once or twice during the NBA Preseason, we’ll gather the troops around the roundtable and hash out the NBA Power rankings.

Oklahoma City (26-7) –  Is it too much to say that Durant and Westbrook are the best duo in the NBA?  They haven’t earned their championship stripes but what else are they lacking?

Miami Heat (26-7) – A Heat vs Thunder finals would make for some great watching for sure.  Heat are looking great right now, perhaps a bit ahead of their closest conference challengers in Chicago.

Chicago Bulls (27-8) – The most complete team on the list so far but they are totally different when Derrick Rose is out of the lineup.  I like their commitment to defense though to smooth things over.

San Antonio Spurs (23-10) – You can’t ignore that record and the fact that Tony Parkers has been lights out lately.  It is just too bad that Manu Ginobili is out once again.  This time for much shorter.

Dallas Mavericks (21-13) – I know they are the defending champs but when you watch them play it is hard to see it.  Delonte West is now out for a while so we will see if they can keep up their recent strong play shorthanded.

Orlando Magic (22-12) – They are playing much better but what will happen as we get closer and closer to the trade deadline.  The All-Star game is in Orlando this year and hopefully the parade of stars can take the focus on Dwight Howard for a moment.

Los Angeles Clippers (20-11) – It is still hard to consider these guys a contender but they are bringing it most nights.  Losing Chauncey Billups was huge for them, they are just .500 in the games since.  This team could slide down the ranking at any moment.

Los Angeles Lakers (20-13) – Perhaps the most dangerous thing in the league is a Kobe Bryant scorned.  He isn’t happy with the rumours surrounding Pau and has sounded off.  At least he can back things up with his play.

New York Knicks (17-17) – Witness the power of Linsanity, elevating a team with a .500 record into the top 10 of the power rating.  Some are even talking MVP which would make him the least likely winner, ever.  Still he has to be considered. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Memphis Grizzlies (19-15) – The Grizz are on a nice run that makes you think about last year’s playoffs.  The offense has been really sharp lately and young legs appear to be tiring less often.

Indiana Pacers (21-12)
Philadelphia 76ers (20-13)
Denver Nuggets (18-16)
Boston Celtics (15-16)
Portland Trailblazers (18-16)
Atlanta Hawks (19-13)
Houston Rockets (20-14)
Minnesota Timberwolves (17-17)
Utah Jazz (15-17)
Golden State Warriors (13-17)
Phoenix Suns (14-20)
New Jersey Nets (10-24)
Milwaukee Bucks (13-19)
Sacramento Kings (11-22)
Toronto Raptors (10-23)
Cleveland Cavaliers (13-18)
Detroit Pistons (11-24)
New Orleans Hornet (8-25)
Washington Wizards (7-26)
Charlotte Bobcats (4-28)

Schule's UFC GRIM REAPER B-L-O-W-O-U-T! (Fight Island)

RONDA WHO? When The Iceman predicted the demise of Ronda Rousey back in 2015, it wasn't very well received. Prior to her loss to Holly Holm, anyone who doubted Rousey was considered a conspiracy theorist. Just 3 years later he cashed his GAME OF THE YEAR on the under in the Nunes vs Cyborg Fight, and he's won 67% of his UFC bets all time.
