We were blessed with three thrilling weeks to open the 2013-14 NBA Season. So many games came down to the final few possessions and teams had yet to figure out if they were good or bad. Both the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns forgot how to tank and decided to beat teams like the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets instead.
We also had the intriguing situations in Brooklyn and Houston with new superstar-laden teams being thrown together.
This week then, the basketball gods decided it was time for a hefty dose of negativity. In the space of one night we lost Marc Gasol until at least January, Andre Iguodala is out indefinitely and Derrick Rose could be done for the season – again.
At least we start with the good teams in these rankings. Onward.
