    Then what's the point of having weekly rankings, if you're just going to assume an eventual team standings? ESPN should just do it monthly or never.
    I prefer that format. You're still penalized for a bad stretch but its not just a ranking of who had the hottest week which is basically what the nba ranking is.

    Because it puts more weight into the big picture. They probably started the season at #2 and have been downgraded for the slow start. But it's not like anybody thinks they wont be near the top soon

    How do the Rockets get #5 on ESPN with a 1-2 record?

    #1 on NBA.com although they put more weight into "right now" more than overall

    We're number 2! (on ESPN). I think that's a first.

    That's cool, though I lost the respect for Sports Illustrated a long, long time ago. Legit to see it at nba.com though
    Agreed. They were just the first to release. Now there are many.

    I heard that somewhere too before I listened to it. Worth noting that this reasonable rant started when he and Arnovitz postulated what might happen if the Raps were the number one seed and got the "NBATv coverage" (ie the early game) for the playoffs.
    Oh, fuck. If the Raps play that noon eastern game again on the first Saturday there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth and rending of garments not seen since the fall of Babylon.

    In his podcast he talks with Kevin Arnovitz about the Raptor's fans feeling disrespected:

    Starts at the 32-minute-mark

    Interesting to hear this point of view.

    We may be 3rd on ESPN power rankings but we’re first in their hearts. Front page story from our man Lowe (on the nba page, that is)
