Power Rankings

RedsArmyAdmin March 2, 2009 Uncategorized 7 Comments on Power Rankings

I apologize – it's been a few weeks since my last Power Rankings. For the thousands of readers who emailed me demanding updated rankings – here goes:

1. Lakers – Still on top despite the two-game losing streak (PHX and DEN). Phil Jackson needs to be careful with Pau Gasol's minutes. Road games against POR, SA and DAL next week.

2. Celtics – I sleep much better with KG in uniform. Marbury and Moore will help, but Scal's head injury keeps bench thin. Afraid this team will run out of gas in the Finals.

3. Cavaliers – Latest reports have Joe Smith back in Cleveland. After watching a few Cavs games recently, I've realized what everyone else already knew – Mo Williams is pretty damn good.

4. Spurs – Popovich is always resting his guys, yet they still come down with nagging injuries. Rumored to be after Drew Gooden.

5. Jazz – Riding 8 game winning streak. Carlos Boozer is back. The trendy pick to make some noise in the West.

Give me your Fave Five…in the comments section.

    What is our record without KG, something ridicolous like 16-4? I know alot of people think we lost these recent games because he wasnt there and hes the main leader of the team…I disagree..I say we lose both games either way, we arent missing just KG, we are missing scal filling in for him and also tony allen allowing pierce to stay fresh…we’ve lost plenty of games and played like garbage WITH kg, you know that right? the guys who are playing just have raise their focus level…they’ve been sleepwalking through the last 3 games all while working in 2 new guys who they have no chemistry with on the floor
    Lakers and Cavs, eh who gives a crap as far as im concerned…Cavs have had an easier schedule than us, and get the benefit of the refs WAAYYY more then we do..just last night they shouldve lost, but didnt because of a bogus non-call and then Lebron getting the call on the other end in the final seconds…What I’ve noticed lately is the celtics playing alot of 5 on 8, but unfortunately its been this way for months, they call the celtics tight, and let the opposing team beat us up with no whistle…if this continues in the playoffs we got no shot

    Not a top 5, just a quick note: Joe Smith is ineligible for the postseason since he didn’t sign before March 1st.

    Actually, I’m pretty sure that all he needs to do is be bought out by March 1st, which he was.

  • Me again?

    I also think the lakers are a good team, as they were last year..but there defense is still suspect, almost mirage like in the way its fooled some people into thinking its good…they have no real defensive identity and will once again be in trouble come june
    I also think they are better team without bynum, so all the lakers idiots who cried and pleaded they wouldve won the finals with glass knees…Please…the lakers have played better basketball without him and also easily got through last years western conference playoffs without him (supposedly the greatest conference ever)
    the bottom line is they play better basketball without him, made the finals without him, so that excuse should be all but dead
