    Competition

    The teams we have beaten this first week have a combined W-L record of 2-8 and we struggled with the C's who had to go into OT to get their lone victory over beat the Knicks. :ohwell:

    With that said, we will stay # 2 until we prove we can beat a contender with ease or the Spurs fall on their faces this week.:rockon:

    we got the 3 game west coast trip for us to prove what we got next starting tommorow against one of the hardest courts to play on if you're a road team in sacramento.

    If you guys recall. Stein had the Pistons as #1 to start last season. The champs who come back with their core intact deserve that.

    Miami isn't looking too hot right now. Mourning got posterized a minimum of 3 times tonight and that's just what I saw from the highlights.

    VC got him twice and Jefferson got him a third time. Mourning went up for the block each time and got dunked on hard before he ducked for cover.

    I love it! (as much as I hate VC and the Nets, I hate Mourning more)

    Not too excited about the ranking. I believe we're #1, but so soon into the season those are somewhat guesses. Teams are still learning new systems and teammates.

    East is the Beast?

    4 of the top 5 from the Eastern Conference (the Heat at #9). Who'd of thunk it?

    I like the Heat getting the low rankings almost as much as the Pistons getting the High ones.

    I can almost hear Van Jeremy now:

    "But we made the most moves in the offseason. We were the most professional team taking care of our business. The Pistons are getting the ranking calls because they whined so much...":blah::blah::blah:

    hi-Hi

    On Philly, I hear ya but they only cracked one of the polls I cited, likely meaning Greenfield is either very independent thinker or he has a soft spot for the Answer...:) Either way he gives the East 7 out'a 10, the beast is lurking mi amigo....

    this is all crap. According to Dan Le Batard, the Heat already swept the season and won the title. This is all just academic.

    Who in their right mind puts the Spurs at the top at this point? they just got rocked by the wizards

    Marc Stein's Power Rankings: Week 5

    Fun little debate for the early season: Which division is the NBA's deepest?

    Is it the Central Division, where all five teams bring winning records into the second week of December?

    Or is it still the Southwest Division? The injury-hit Houston Rockets haven't come close to living up to their preseason billing, but the San Antonio Spurs, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks account for three of the top four teams in Marc Stein's weekly NBA Power Rankings.

    Read on to see how your team ranks, and click here to send Stein some feedback.

    You can also click here for Stein's latest around-the-league notebook edition of the Daily Dime.

    Power Rankings: West still best when conferences collide
    by Tony Mejia
    A month into the season, the Power Rankings are more easily decipherable. Lines can be clearly drawn between favorites San Antonio and Detroit, the quality teams that fill out the top half of the field, and the also-rans jockeying for position.

    I loved the last part of the article

    "There are no handouts from Detroit this season. Even the Warriors and Clippers couldn't steal victories at home. The Pistons are rolling (despite their off night against the Jazz) and don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Do you think all five of Detroit's starters could start for the East in the All Star game? Why not? They'd probably win."
