No offense, but these are ridiculous... Power rankings are based on how the team is currently doing not how you think they'll do. How is LA 3, Houston 19 and the 3-0 Magic near the bottom?

I don't think you understand what power rankings are.

You guys should be more polite, and more constructive. Don't make him feel bad, just give him some constructive criticism.

Although I agree with you. I'm sure ANY sports fan who read that list in person with the OP would have no problems being honest with those rankings.

To answer most of you guys, the way I view Power Rankings are a combination of how they have done this year, combined with expected playing of the team. The Magic are towards the bottom of the list because they are NOT A GOOD team. They are 3-0 and playing well, but they will not end up being a 50 win team deserving a higher spot. The Rockets are not so far up, because I still think this team is a few pieces away from being a contender and a playoff team, as the season goes on they can prove me wrong and move higher, but I (as well as many other NON-RIDCULOUSLY-Optimistic Rockets/NBA Fans) believe they aren't a playoff team just yet. The Lakers will be at the top most of the season, so they don't drop to bottom 5 team because of their current record.

Just looking at ESPN rankings: http://espn.go.com/nba/powerrankings , we don't see the Magic in top 5, because they don't deserve it. Sure the Thunder are 1-2, but they aren't a middle of the pack team, they are still top of the pack. They used their current play a lot more than I did, but to say my power rankings are absolutely ridiculous is beyond absurd.

Anyway, I don't mind answering any other questions regarding why I put a team in X-spot, etc.

Thanks for reading, and thanks to the posters who backed me up a bit!

Keep it up! Don't feel bad. Clutchfans hates every level of writers, no matter if it's Bleacher Report or ESPN.

so that was week 2 when they started 1-2. I now have them at 9. They are better then they have been playing. They will pick it up, and if I see a reason that they won't pick it up, I will keep sliding them more down. We are early in the season, and to hard to tell on many teams, what will be with them come January time. Things will even out as the weeks go by.

Could you be a bit more descriptive with your rankings? Stuff like "As expected, the Thunder get back on the winning track" seems vague.

Why not throw a stat or two to back things up, or maybe add how the chemistry with Martin seems to be getting better.

Just my 2 cents, I'm not looking to ridicule you or anything like that.

The Lakers at number 3 completely makes this list laughable. Rockets at 19 is fair.

Yes, I plan to do a lot more of that in the future. Thanks for the feedback.

These aren't power rankings, they are your opinion on who you think are the best teams based on Roster. You might as well copy/paste it for every week
