I want some serious feedback on these rankings. No one knows basketball any more than those of us that frequent this site and these forums.
Feel free to rip them apart or give positive/negative feedback. Some of the records might be a day old but you guys get the drift.
30. Washington Wizards (1-13) – Congratulations Wizard fans, your team finally got their first win of the season. With games against the Heat and at Atlanta on the schedule this week, don’t expect that second one for a while. (CC).
I demand a recount!!
Not bad at all! Personally, I think the Lakers are too high & the T-Wolves are too low!
T-Wolves have looked good lately, and with K-Love back, I expect them to make a serious playoff run!
I also think the lakers are starting to become a train wreck, and i don't know if they will figure it out. They sure haven't gained that "Elite" title yet in my mind.
Don't get me wrong, with the way they have been playing there is not a ton of crdibility to my criticism. But they have a way easier schedule after the first third of the season. They have better players and a deeper team than last year (except at SF right now). And the bottom of the league has not improved all that much. No way this team finishes the season as low as you have them. Look for improvement over the next month or there will be a trade - and for once they actually have some decent pieces to move.
No way this is the worst team in the league. I'm not sure I see them cracking the top 20 at this point, but they are definately better than you are forcasting.
agreed, the raptors have lost 7 very close games now...however they just cant seem to play well for the entire 48 minutes...they either play well for the first three quarters and lose the lead in the fourth or they play like crap for three quarters and make a comeback in the fourth only to lose by 5 or fewer. with some luck and had lowry not been injured for a week and a half, they could easily be in that top 20 area. take in like you said that they have a very very tough first quarter of the season...you can only hope that they can somehow make a run after december and move into that 9-10 seed.
i would also like to see them move either ed davis or amir johnson though, because we arent using them effectively at all...preferrably amir cuz he thinks hes a shooter now and its the biggest piss off ever.
The Lakers Number 8 Ranking must be based on their potentail..Becuz Heaven knows they havent played like the 8th best team in the league..
If Memphis can get a consistent outside shooter and another backcourt defensive guy..They'll be unstoppable...
Blake Griffin seems to be finally playing himself into form after struggling early in the season.....How far they go will depend on how much Billups have left in the tank.....
@WizKid - Yeah I was a little late on getting them over here and then they went out and beat the Heat last night. I really don't think the Wiz are this bad. Nene and John Wall out really makes this team look sub par at best.
The Wolves will definitely get better now that they have Love back. They are a playoff team with Love and Rubio.
The Lakers high ranking probably is based on potential. I mean you can't really make a case that teams like Atlanta and Milwaukee are actually better than the LA. They may be playing like it right now but that won't last long.
I can't agree on the Raptors. I think they are horribly constructed. They have a few nice pieces but they don't seem to fit in my opinion.
I don't have too much of gripe with the rankings. My question is if Bynum is healthy, how good can the Sixers be? He immediately completes their roster and improves them defensively. I think they could be one of the scariest teams in the league come playoff time. Think a quicker, smaller East Coast Grizzlies.
