Anyone who has followed my illustrious power rankings will notice a monumental shift in the top 5 – the Celtics have surged ahead of the Lakers.
Call me a green-teamer, I don't care. I'm a bit frustrated with the lack of respect given to the Celtics by most of the national media. And if I hear anymore Kobe or LeBron for MVP talk, I will puke.
Either way – KG's return has me pumped.
1. Cavaliers – Only lost once this entire month…to the Celtics…who didn't have KG at the time. Hmmm…
1a. Celtics – KG is back. All is well. Get Pierce some rest.
3. Lakers – They're giving up just 0.8 ppg fewer than last season, teams are shooting a half-percent better and we are supposed to believe they are tougher and better defensively?
4. Spurs – Playing mediocre ball over last week. How will Ginobli look if/when he returns? Starting to wonder if they can "flip the switch" come playoff time like everyone thinks.
5. Hornets, Rockets, Jazz, Magic – None of these teams have a chance to win it all. I''ll just lump them all together at No. 5.
