Playing 500 ball doesn't help in the rankings, but are the rankings still based on trade uncertainties? Check out this week's composite power rankings.

So we go 2-1 and look much improved since the last rankings, yet we slide in the majority of them? That's bull.

It's funny we complain about our top ten power rankings. It wasnt that long ago all we discussed were our top ten draft pick options

Yea, I don't think this week's rankings are very good as they aren't based on records. Look the Clippers lost 4 of their last 7 but it didn't affect their rankings much.

You guys realize, while being towards the top is nice, that the power rankings mean absolutely nothing, right?

The Hollinger rankings are simply computer rankings that have no human content to them. Heck, I think Houston is almost in the top 5 in Hollinger's rankings. They are completely formula generated.

I like the ESPN RPI rankings. It must be the same type formula that the NCAA uses to rank the college teams for the tournament.

According to the ESPN RPI, we have played the 3rd toughest schedule in the whole league to date.

Marc Stein, Yahoo, NBA.com--all those are subjective rankings that a person or people simply rank the teams as they see fit.
