NBA Power Rankings (MAR. 6th)

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.

Chicago Bulls (31-8) – They just keep winning and somebody had to take the top spot with Miami having a less than stellar week.  The two teams face off next week so the Bulls will look to stay strong until then.

Oklahoma City Thunder (29-8) – They are still the class of the Western Conference and Russell Westbrook’s bum ankle doesn’t appear to be bothering him that much.  Look out below, the Lakers are charging hard.

Los Angeles Lakers (23-14) – I am jumping up the Lakers because I like the fire they showed in beating Miami on the weekend.  More so than the teams above it this team has a killer instinct.  Please make a deal for a point guard.

Miami Heat (28-9) – It is just so much fun to pick on LeBron James isn’t it.  The crunch time story is nothing new, we are just seeing recent examples.  It doesn’t really matter though because in the playoffs Dwayne Wade will have the ball.  It just makes for good talk show material.

San Antonio Spurs (25-12) – It was a surprise to see them drop a couple of home games but this team is still right where they want to be.  It is good to see Tim Duncan mixing it up a little bit.  He is aging gracefully but there is still some fire there it seems.

Indiana Pacers (23-12) – One of the hottest teams going right now.  This team has been dangerous all season long because they seem to excel at all the little things – like going to the free throw line and making them count.

Orlando Magic (24-14) – The Magic’s play of late only underscores how much it will kill the franchise if they trade Dwight Howard and don’t make a good deal.  I think they are going to hold off.  Winning, especially in the playoffs will make everything easier.

Memphis Grizzlies (22-15) – While lots of teams are looking to make deals the Grizz might get the best addition when Zach Randolph gets healthy.  They have been playing great, cleaning up at home and outscoring teams that can’t keep up.

Dallas Mavericks (22-16) – One of the biggest questions is whether Lamar Odom is a lost cause.  The deal looked smart on paper but is anyone really surprised he has pouted his way through the season.  Just think what would happen if he returned to form though. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Los Angeles Clippers (22-13) – Who would have thought that Kenyon Martin could be a difference maker.  It is a short sample size but he is playing well individually and the team is getting better defensively.  Again, who would have thought.

Boston Celtics (19-17) – Rondo is hottest thing going right now.
Atlanta (23-15) – Good record but nobody is talking about them
Denver Nuggets (22-17)
Minnesota Timberwolves (20-19) – Shouldn’t these guys be a bigger story?
Philadelphia 76ers (22-17)
New York Knicks (18-19)
Portland Trailblazers (19-19)
Houston Rockets (21-17)
Utah Jazz (18-19)
Phoenix Suns (17-20)
Golden State (15-20)
Sacramento Kings (12-26) – Demarcus Cousins – meanest player in NBA?
Milwaukee Bucks (15-23)
Toronto Raptors (12-26)
New Jersey Nets (12-27)
Cleveland Cavaliers (13-23)
Detroit (12-26) – Another lost season for the Pistons.  At least Greg Monroe is progressing
New Orleans Hornets (9-29) – Life without Chris Paul is pretty dreary.
Washington (8-29)
Charlotte (5-31)
