NBA.com Power Rankings: GS Warriors #26

New, comments

NBA.com released their Offseason Power Rankings and the Warriors wound up with a great chance to begin The Yi Movement in 2007. The Warriors' current ranking of 26 would potentially give them a great chance at landing a top pick in next year's draft. The last power ranking had them at #23, meaning that the Warriors have only become a worse team in comparison to the rest of the league. Here's the caption that went along with the bottom 5 rankings:

With Ike Diogu and Monta Ellis, we like the Warriors' future, but they'll need more chemistry than what they had last year among the vets to improve their present.

It's nice that they spun it in as positive of a way as possible. No mention of JRich? He's only the best player on the team. I would have written something about how this could be Monty's last year, or something about the lack of offseason moves. I guess I have to remember that this is nba.com and they're not really allowed to write anything remotely controversial.

Anyways, here's my ranking top to bottom of teams in the league: (Note my optimism for the Warriors' ranking!)

  1. Miami Heat
  2. Dallas Mavericks
  3. San Antonio Spurs
  4. Houston Rockets
  5. Phoenix Suns
  6. Cleveland Cavaliers
  7. New Jersey Nets
  8. Chicago Bulls
  9. Detroit Pistons
  10. L.A. Clippers
  11. L.A. Lakers
  12. NO/ Okla City Hornets
  13. Washington Wizards
  14. Milwaukee Bucks
  15. Denver Nuggets
  16. Memphis Grizzlies
  17. Indiana Pacers
  18. Golden State Warriors
  19. Sacramento Kings
  20. Utah Jazz
  21. New York Knicks
  22. Orlando Magic
  23. Minnesota Timberwolves
  24. Seattle Supersonics
  25. Philadelphia 76ers
  26. Toronto Raptors
  27. Boston Celtics
  28. Charlotte Bobcats
  29. Portland Trailblazers
  30. Atlanta Hawks
