Week 19 Rankings

With LeBron James missing the last two games with an injured right ankle (or “just resting” according to Mike Brown), the Cavaliers haven’t quite looked like the same 50 win team they’ve been all season.  But that’s to be expected.  They have been forced to readjust roles and make up for the absence of the world’s greatest player.

But Marc Stein’s NBA Power Rankings came out on Monday (March 8th) and the Cavaliers were ranked number three.  Yes, #3!  Pushing the Cavs down below the Magic and the Mavericks following a loss to a pretty good Milwaukee Bucks team seems a bit premature.  Don’t you think?

Here’s what I came up with: My Rankings

Now it’s your turn.  Whether you’re a Cavs fan, a Lakers fan (sorry), a Magic fan (sorry, again) or just an NBA fan in general, I’d like to know what you think.  Rank the teams 1-30 and post the link to your picks in the comments section. 

13 days until Big Z comes home!
