Right now through the very limited sample size of games we have to judge from, random pretenders like the Grizzlies, Knicks, Clippers have to be among the teams at the top of the list purely because of their records. However, come January/February the true contenders will separate themselves from the rest. They will be:

Tier 1 contenders: Heat, Lakers

Tier 2 contenders: Spurs, Thunder

Then the Knicks, Grizzlies and Clippers will look more like ordinary playoff teams.

Nah Clippers are good to stay, they are certainly contenders this year.

Yeah, not a fan of so far rankings.. what's the point? We can just look at the standings as see who's got the best records.

How about this, if the playoffs started today who would win in a 7 game series.

1. Miami
2. SAS
3. OKC
4. Memphis
5. NYK

Would have to see more of LAC + LAL (with D'Anotni) to place them. Clearly the Lakers belong in their somewhere.

If contenders describes any 50+ win team, then yeah they can be contenders. But they'd get owned in a 7-game series against the Lakers, Spurs or Thunder.

Disagree, Jamal Crawford's shooting makes them a completly different team this year. A legit contender. They have the size, speed, shooting and overall depth to go deep in the playoffs. They had OKC's number last year and they have improved alot since then

Yeah. Even if Crawford is not scoring with career high efficiency like he is now, I think they still have a strong enough bench and starting lineup to contend. As long as CP3 and Griffin can stay healthy, then they can make some noise. They look like a legit contender.

Clearly Knicks and grizzlies, the have the two worst schedules of the NBA and despite that they have the best point differential of the NBA.

Re: to you, what are the top 5 teams in the NBA so far?
 
It's hard to say. I don't want to completely write off teams like the Celtics, Bulls, and Nuggets yet.

Thunder, Lakers, and Heat have been underperforming, but you'd expect them to eventually pick it up.

Knicks and Clippers need a bigger sample size.

People don't realize the Clippers are running like the Spurs where barely any games our starters play over 30 minutes. CP3 is averaging like 32 minutes a game and Griffin 31... compared to 37+ for both last year. The bench is good enough to take on most teams for stretches. Last night Lebron+Bosh+Miami bench couldn't stop the Clippers full bench squad from pushing a 9 point lead to 20.

Sadly OKC need to find their rhythm, chemistry and focus is lacking. Hope we don't drop too many games during this transitory and peak sometime after the AS break.

OKC will be fine it's just tough to get off to rough starts with how damn deep the west is. It's why this Laker team will find it tough to get one of the higher seeds as Spurs, Clippers, Grizzles are also so good as well you need more than 1 team to fall off and play badly.

i honestly fail to see how the clippers would get "owned" by any of them. they are not the same team as last year. their chemistry is so much better this year, and jordan is actually starting to play up to his capability. plus crawford playing under control, and they still have billups coming back who will probably start at the 2 when he comes back.

thunder have lots of problems with the clips because griffin is probably the only PF more athletic than ibaka, and perkins just isnt athletic enough to be effective against them. they usually rape them on the glass

still not sold on the lakers being some automatic finals team. they have no bench, no 3 pt shooting, and no speed in the back court.

i wouldnt be surprised at all to see a clippers vs grizz WCF

Re: to you, what are the top 5 teams in the NBA so far?
 
some teams are just peaking early. it would be foolish to say grizz are the best team so early in the season.
