Week 4 Power Rankings
() Iamgine 2-0
: "Dissapointingly" had a tie this week. He was winning all week but just could not close it out thanks to a Lin choke job. Oh well, still is the only team not to lose this year and thus still holds the top spot.
2. (+3) Pocahontas 2-1
: Could be up here for a while now, made some big trades that have made his roster the most talented in the league. Win this week was against a previously undefeated team but led by Cousins/Nikola and Hayward in the perimeter barely pulled through. This will be his 1st full week with his new team and it looks scary.
3. (+3) DRAKE2-1
: Was one of the biggst winners this week with a big bounceback victory dominating the previous #3 seed 7-2 to take his position. Was just too big for his opponent and Reggie Jackson's good run right now has made his guards very competitive as well. Next week's opponent shouldn't be too difficult either as he has finally proven himself to be more than mediocre.
4. (+3) Keep Floatin 2-1
: Just when things were starting to look lost for this team he bounces back. He got a good win against a mediocre team proving his team is actually still in the upper half without Westbrook. Once Russell returns his team is as good as anyones.
5. (+3) TysonChandlerParsons 2-1
: Time to give credit where its due, has looked better than anyone in the past 2 weeks. His roster is full of studs and despite not having a legit 1st rounder has a good all-around team. Some of his players are still off to slow starts so things may only get better from here. Schedule recently hasn't been too challenging so finally gets a test this week to see how good his team really is.44
6. (-2) 313 2-1
: The defending champs long win streak finally ends. Give him some props though he kept it close and lost by just 1 assist at the end to a Top 2 team. Kind of hard to imagine how good this team could be when Durant comes back, but in the meantime Oladipo's return should help.
7. (-5) Dream Team 2-1
: Got unexpectedly smacked around against one of the more bottom ranked teams. Prior to this week had not trailed all year, but this week trailed all week. Luckily faces another team to hopefully get it going again.
8. (-5) Rameek's Year! 2-1
: After a hot start to the season finally got put in his place. Sure a lot of this blame goes to Griffin and Aldridge only playing twice last week, but getting a 7-2 beat down is still tough. A more winnable matchup next week.
9. (+3) Big Poppa PUMPIN 1-2
: Has jumped back into relevancy with a strong 6-3 win. He was in control all week and now that he has gotten healthier seems to once again display he possibly has a playoff contender team. Another challenge awaits this week however as we still try to figure out exactly how good this team is healthy.
10. (+1) NJ3 MVP @Navidsworld 0-2
: Couldn't quite pull out his 1st win, but the Kobe trade help him tie points and tie the #1 ranked team for the week. Thats definately a positive sign after the struggles the 1st 2 weeks. Hopes to keep this up against another strong opponent upcoming this week.
11. (+2) Mayo Team For Sale! 1-2
: Was one of the biggest surprise wins this week. Despite destroying his team with a trade, a manager change sparked a comeback win to get his 1st win. Team still looks like it lacks talent, but hopefully the more competitive trend with the new manager continues.
12. (-2) G-Train 1-2
: Didn't necessarily have the worst week, kept it competitive against a relatively good team, but a loss is a loss. A lot of players are not playing up to par, and its beginning to look questionable if Bosh & Love can get the job done.
13. (-4) Team Fournicator 1-2
: After looking great last week had a very disturbing loss losing against a team that went through a crisis and was up for sale. If you can't win these games can you really make playoffs? Going against a middle level team this week trying to redeem and still prove he might be playoff caliber.
() Sizz 0-3
: Only team which has lost all 3 games. Enough said.
Matchup of the Week
2 Pocahontas 2-1 vs. 5 TysonChandlerParsons 2-1
2 teams who started 0-1 and now are 2-1. In fact, believe it or not, they are tied for the longest win streak right now. However, after this week only 1 team will keep that streak alive. We finally get to see a full action of Sky's new team to get a better feeling of how good it is, and it will come against an opponent that has multiple studs and has figured things out since the opening week loss.
