Empty the Bench: There’s been very little movement at the top; the rest of the league is another story.
Every week a group of NBA writers, including the dons here at ETB, take some time to take a look around the NBA and rank its teams 1-30, best to worst, winners to losers, champs to chumps, so that you can get an easy-to-dissiminate update on the current state of the league. As you’ll see below, last year’s NBA Finals participants are off to a combined record of 30-3 and remain the top two teams in the league; the league’s worst two, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers, are a combined 5-29.
These rankings are an aggregate of each writer’s individual ranks; comments are included to further shed light into the mind of our voters. Make sure you check out the list of links at the very bottom for more NBA thoughts from this week’s participants, and to contrast and compare with the Week 4 ranks, head on over to Bright Side of the Sun.
Without further ado, it’s Week 5 of the NBA Blogger Power Rankings.
