[She.Got.Game] Peep Her Rankings
by: Passion Hoopz
Inspired by ESPN, I have decided to do my own personal Power Rankings each Monday, but only placing emphasis on who I feel like is the Top 5 teams in the league at the moment:
Week of 1.30
1. Miami Heat (15-5)– Although they don’t have the best record over the entire league, I placed Miami at #1 this week because they knocked off D Rose and The Chicago Bulls last week, who had the best record in Eastern Conference. [We are going to look past the MVP and former MVP both missed clutch free throws at the end of the game].
2. Oklahoma City Thunder (16-3)– Durant and Co. comes in at #2 with the best NBA record in both the east and western conference. Why aren’t they
number 1 in front of Miami Heat this week? Because they fell short to the Washington Wizards recently, who [at the time had the WORSE record in the league]. Unacceptable by all means.
3. Chicago Bulls (17-5)– The MVP and Bulls came back out this season, despite the lockout, ON FIRE! This week’s ranking of 3rd due to the fact that they lost to Miami [which they endured without Deng]. I’m smelling a 2010-2011 Eastern Conference Championship repeat!
4. Denver Nuggets (14-6)– Coming in at 4th is the Nuggets, whom I would say got the better part of the deal with the Melo trade [looks at Knicks record]. They have come out the blocks playing very well and have one of the deepest benches in the league. They keep it up and they will be a real contender in the West.
