    Yeah, I actually edited that bit out but whatever. You haven't laughed at accident compilations(ladders, tree cutting, automobiles, boats, etc) on Youtube? Exactly. Hypocrite.

    Anyway, the power rankings is a based what's left on tap, it's not based on your record and it's not based on what was going on earlier in the season.
    So if the rankings aren’t based on your record or what happened earlier, do injuries really impact that much? Other than season long injuries; what excuse does Mack have for dropping 4%?

    Yes, because their guys are hurt right now and that will impact stat projections, especially in the case of Mack & I who are carrying superstars who aren't suiting up again this season.

    Edit: I think Mack's drop is representative of Wall injury hitting all these analyst's projections. These are consensus rankings and these guys don't update in real time.

    Once CP3 and IT return I'll be rolling. I'm 8-4 and my stats are still matching up pretty close with other top ranked teams even though I'm consistently without 2,3,4 players each week - 3 of which are all-star calibre. I'm not worried about the rankings nonsense, we'll just see what happens in March.

    What happens in March in most years is that Chris Paul, Joel Embiid, and Blake Griffin get hurt, leaving your team anchored by Rudy Gay, Andre Drummond and DeAndre “FT” Jordan.

    It seems to be only nonsense to those who never get the nod at the top slot.

    By the way, the first power rankings of the season has accurately guessed the top five to this point. Back then people thought it was crazy that Skywalker and Drizz would be snubbed.

    Justice got his pg status this week. Turns out he is not a better James Johnson, he is a giant point guard.

    That flexibility of 3 positions is huge ... not too many in the league. Congrats man!

    Winslow is probably now Miek’s BEST PG.

    Injuries. You team is completely healthy. I'm missing arguably a top 10-15 player who rounds out some stats I'm lacking in right now(which makes him particularly more valuable to my team build).
    I'm genuinely curious, but do you think Porzingis comes back as a Top 10-15 Player?
    Players who have suffered ACL tears rarely (if ever) get anywhere close to where they were prior to the injury. I do hope he manages a full recovery, because I think he's good for the game, but ya ... I don't know.

    He was arguably top five before getting hurt, he was on a total tear. He's further ahead in his recovery than some Knick brass are suggesting, as evident by his social media. He doesn't depend on athleticism to be effective. He's very young and so his recovery ability is higher than some of the guys you're probably thinking about. ACL injuries aren't as big a deal as they used to be and we're not talking about some 6'5" high flyer wing and so I'm 100% certain he will be recovered beyond 100% when he returns. What I mean by that is they put him on a preventative program as part of his recovery so this doesn't happen in the future. He will be better than ever and just in time for my 2019-2020 Mayhem Tour.
