he also has the rockets above the nets which seems silly to me- they don't even have a solid first-string much less a reliable bench. at least the nets have one of the better first-strings in the league. not to mention t-mac is a walking injury waiting to happen and he's essential to them being considered a good team

also, he's criticising thorn for adding what looked like good depth to the team on paper which didn't work out last year yet at the same time rating the bulls so high solely because of adding depth on paper. who says their team chemistry actually works out with the new pieces? who says skiles doesn't grate on the kids or burn out? and then he also says the bulls played the heat the toughest last year. baloney- the mavs did, and second i would rate the nets. before cliffy got tossed and RJ had a nagging injury the nets were rolling. and other than the one blowout loss i seem to recall the nets playing the heat plenty tough in all the other games.

just shows how this ranking stuff is usually a bunch of hot air. he has teams moving up and down all year like mexican jumping beans mostly on the basis of mini-win streaks...

wow sixers are 29. this guy has no clue what he's talking about. They're bad, but not that bad. I agree with the NEts thing too. I think they are better than the cavs and the pistons and a few others to be honest.

alston, wells, battier, howard, and yao don't sound like a solid first-string to you?

alston- good scorer but a bonehead and what's more, not a true PG
wells- good all-around player but usually disruptive
battier- terrific player but won't fully mesh for a month or two
howard- usually good stats yet his teams never win and he's always being traded
yao- should be the #1 center in league after this season

very good first-string from a numbers perspective, yet only two character guys among them and they haven't played together yet. let them find a real PG and let tmac play a healthy season and suddenly it's a very different story. but that hasn't happened yet...

Default re:

well in his disclaimer he did say that these rankings were also based on off season moves and not purely by talent....



but everyone hates Jersey. it's been a known fact of life.
