Mke Bucks Diary's NBA Power Rankings

1. Phoenix Suns: If Stoudamire stays healthy, this is the year they step up.

2. Dallas Mavericks: After choking away the finals, they will be on a mission.

3. Miami Heat: Wade is the best, but Shaq will break down.

4. Detroit Pistons: Mohammed will do a serviceable job replacing Wallace.

5. LA Clippers: The stars are finally aligned for the Clippers.

6. San Antonio Spurs: The window for another title run is closing.

7. Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron will elevate his game.

8. Chicago Bulls: A team on the rise; but did they sell out the future?

9. Indiana Pacers: If they can stay off the police blotter, they’re much improved.

10. Orlando Magic: Came on very strong at the end of last season.

11. Denver Nuggets: Even with George Karl, this team poised for success.

12. LA Lakers: Kobe will have some help, but can he play nice?

13. Sacramento Kings: Artest brings a season of toughness; turmoil too?

14. Washington Bullets: How high is the Big 3’s ceiling?

15. New Jersey Nets: This team is getting old fast.

16. Houston Rockets: If McGrady and Yao can stay healthy, they’re moving up.

17. Utah Jazz: Those pesky Jazz.

18. Milwaukee Bucks: One more major injury, they will sink like a rock.

19. Seattle Sonics: Without last year’s coaching fiasco, they should improve.

20. OKC Hornets: Paul is a superstar in waiting.

21. Memphis Grizzlies: With Gasol injured and Battier gone, they are in decline.

22. Boston Celtics: With their firepower, they should be better than they are.

23. Golden State Warriors: The Milwaukee Brewers of the NBA.

24. Minnesota Twolves: Garnett should sue McHale for abandonment.

25. Atlanta Hawks: Too much youth to contend, but should show improvement.

26. Toronto Raptors: They will miss Villanueva and James.

27. Philadelphia 76ers: This team is a mess; keep shooting Chris.

28. Charlotte Bobcats: This team could be a sleeper.

29. New York Knicks: Isiah is no Red Holzman.

30. Portland Trailblazers: Why did they trade for Magliore?

Sky....I'm not with you on the Indiana ranking so high at #8. Even with the law breaker problem, I haven't liked that team at all since Reggie Miller retired. I'd put them about 18th.

Quietly that team is now looking like Portland....non-leader players who do not play smart ball. I just see a lot of very low IQ's on that squad.

Probably right. Its my first kick at the cat as far as Power Ranking. People seem to love them. Let's just say its a work in progress. I think time and events will correct my more egregious errors, such as the one you point out. Don't be surprised if my next ranking follow's your advice to a T. Thanks for the input.

Stick to your guns with Indy....you might be right....I was just a big Reggie Miller fan because of the way he torched us, even in his later years. Then after that mess in the Palace two-years ago, it was clear to me that the rest of the Indy roster was not filled with what you'd call "winners" . I think Reggie was a huge stabilizing influence on that team right until his retirement.

The media though seems to still be in love with the Walsh/Bird/Carlisle trio and think Harrington and Daniels are the answer for them. I just don't see it. It looks to me like "Portland East". But that's why they play the games, so we shall find out.
