NBA Power Rankings
We’re less than ten days from Christmas Day. Where has the time gone? Looking at the slate of games the NBA has lined up doesn’t exactly scream must-see TV. The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls are pretty awful, the Lakers will be no match for the Heat and the Knicks take on the Thunder in perhaps the most lopsided of all five games.
That’s still a little time away and this week saw the return of one of the all-time greats of the game. Kobe Bryant walked onto the Staples Center court to the sound of the Imperial March from Star Wars. Bryant’s return reinforced his status as a transcendent sportsman. The entire nation – and beyond – dropped what they were doing to see the return of The Black Mamba.
With that brief eulogy for Kobe out of the way, we press on.
