Multiple arguments could be that "The Bulls have been playing exceptionally without Derrick Rose," or "The Celtics have been on a roll since the All-Star Break," or "LeBron has been playing injured." ESPN is likely to find a way to position the Spurs lower in the Power Rankings, which I don't mind, because I enjoy having the Spurs under the radar. This may be viewed as a pointless post, but I just wanted to hear some of the opinions of fellow Pounders.
This Spurs team has been great. They compete on every level of the game; they defend, they rebound, and they score. However (not that many would care) ESPN tends to rank many other teams higher than the Spurs regardless of the circumstances. This really isn't a huge deal, but is a testament to the Spurs being "under the radar." The Spurs have a lock for the second spot, but I was wondering how ESPN would rank the teams.
