Here is a small LOL, the USA Today Sagarin power rankings. I got a screencap instead of a link because it's a hotlink. Kind of cute to see New Orleans and Portland where they are:

tuq,

This will all even out, Sagarin's rankings get a little skewed in every sport in early season b/c of some teams high SOS. At the end of Dec these rankings will be pretty accurate as each team will have started to even their schedule out a little bit more.

tuq rocking the Forecast Fox extension.

Those rankings don't look terrible if you're ranking them based on performance so far, especially if you just go by the predictor (which you should be). Detroit and Phoenix look kinda low.

Boston sports note: The Celtics are scoring the most points per 100 possessions (114.6) and allowing the least (94.0). Dallas and Utah tie for the second best offensive totals (114.2). New Orleans is second defensively 99.4. 5.4 points over 100 possessions is a retarded total, it's the difference between New Orleans and Charlotte (#15). KG 4 Deity.

Well, I use to think the one sport Simmons was good at was basketball, but I haven't agreed with much he's written about it this year. His two part Eastern Conference predictions are in. I disagree with a ton of it, both the ordering and some player remarks (hating on Iggy jumped out at me).

His predictions:

15. Bobcats
14. 76ers
13. Wiz
12. Bucks
11. Pacers
10. Hawks
9. Knicks
8. Heat
7. Nets
6. Bulls
5. Raps
4. Magic
3. Cavs
2. Pistons
1. Celtics

I'd say he's farthest off on the Heat and Cavs.

I'd go:

15. Bucks
14. Pacers
13. 76ers
12. Knicks
11. Heat
10. Bobcats
9. Washington
8. Hawks
7. Raps
6. Cavs
5. Nets
4. Magic
3. Bulls
2. Pistons
1. Celtics

Though I'd prefer tiers. Worst: Bucks, then 14-11 are all close. Then 10-7 could all contend for playoff spots. 6-4 could be whatever, and same with 1-3, assuming the Bulls aren't actually awful.

Can't even read the rest if you actually think the Bucks are the worst team in the East.
