I just can't understand why everyone has Orlando ranked so high. They would be under .500 playing in the west

Tune in Tuesdays to "NBA Fastbreak" on ESPN to see this week's U.S. Army Power Rankings. The Grizzlies are the U.S. Army Team of the Week after spoiling Derrick Rose's Memphis homecoming as part of a 4-0 surge.

This is definitely positive...NBA is giving credit were credit is do...Espn thinks its just luck, but last week we did something we can do all year...we played strong d, were agressive, and everyone filled their role to the best of their ability...Our goal is to beat all bad and sub-par teams, and give the good teams a good run and hope for a win..Our proud of the coach and all the players..

Well, I think its about right where they have us, this week will tell if we are getting better. I don't expect to beat NOLA, but we need to give them a good fight. We need to beat the BCats, and give LA and Dallas battles. ..................Reality week?

It is good that had that 11 game losing slump. All r under estimating us, and think we r the same team as last year. OJ is replacing Mike Miller. Notwithstanding, we have beaten 3 play off contenders in the same week. So we r contenders in the making and can't sit at the bottom of losers pool.

I didn't expect us to be ranked so high...........I was thinking 23-25. But I guess 4-0 for a "bottom-of-the-league" team is a bigger deal than I thought.

The thing is that going 4-0 means you didn't just get lucky and catch a team here and there snoozing for a win. You didn't just finally manage to play one round of 48 minutes at your highest abilities. Through all your up and downs of a week you kept it together as a team and you beat 2 playoff teams.

I am glad we're getting great respect for that around the league already.

GOOD JOB!

A lot of credit has to go to coach Ivy. People can bash him all they want but his changes are what got the wheels rolling. Lets hope he can keep it up.

Let's not act as if this team wasn't spiraling out of control just a few weeks ago. We aren't talking about a few bad games under his belt.

You're certainly welcome to crown his arse and rollon with his wheel self but, a four game winning streak isn't that impressive if you're a professional.

I still have an eyeful of 75 losses burned into my corneas.

The W's are helping with the pain, though.

I just don't see how people can expect him to turn a group of kids into a professional basketball team overnight. It's going to be hard no matter who the coach is right now. They're coming around now though, maybe just in time to save him from getting the axe.

Just like any other professional coach works with a squad to prepare them for any sport.

Just like any NCAA coach takes kids from their mommy and daddy and turns them into collaga level athletes.

It's their job, we're not talking rocket science, we're talking about a game.
