The Lakers Nation is participating in the Blogger’s Power Rankings.
What is this exactly? In the words of Hornets 247‘s Ryan Schwan, the man behind the concept…
One day, I was driving into work listening to the book The Wisdom of Crowds. The book was nothing if not convincing about the power of a group of experts, appropriately isolated, to pick the correct answer more often than a single or pair of experts. So – I figured if all of us blogger-types got together and created our own Power Rankings, we’d be able to put together a pretty good offering that fairly accurately reflects the state of the league.
When I got home, I sent out a request to those bloggers – some of whom decided to actually speak to me, and voila! the Blogger’s Power Rankings was born. We’ll be coming at you from various host sites all season long, giving you the insight(maybe), witty comments(sometimes), and overall rankings for all the teams in the league.
The Rankings will be hosted on different blogs throughout the season. Hornets247 kicks us off here.
