NBA Obsessed - NBA Basketball News

Top 5 NBA Teams

by james on December 9th, 2007

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

The return of James, your basketball author. Now the good and the bad. The good is that my most excellent boss and coworkers filled in quite nicely and that is most appreciated.The bad is that James is diagnosed with Cancer and undergoing chemotherapy. Fear not, they say the cancer is one that is curable, so let us move forward with our dreams of basketball!

John Schuhmann gives you the NBA.com power rankings with emphasis on the top 5.

1. San Antonio - last week number 3.

15-3 Off: 115.8 (1), Def: 104.9 (10) — Obviously, Tim Duncan’s knee injury overshadows the Spurs’ No. 1 ranking, but the early word is that he won’t be out long.


Author’s take - hard to argue. Best half court D and Tim D on O. Both recipes for playoff victory.

2. Boston - last week number 1. Unbeaten at home. Great D.

Author’s take - Boston deserves this ranking, but it is a long season and this group is still new together. Ask me again in February.

3. Phoenix - last week number 2. Grant Hill had an awesome game against the Knicks.

Author’s take - Grant gives them another weapon, like they needed one. Steve Nash is a premier player, but does the Phoenix all offense style get you past San Antonio?

4. Orlando - last week number 4. Dwight Howard is putting up MVP numbers.

Author’s take - who would have believed this team would be this good. Still Dwight is young and the playoffs are typically won by teams that have been there.

5. Utah - last week number 5. They beat the Lakers without Boozer or Okur.

Author’s take - A big team with a great young point guard. Hard to argue here.

The Pistons, Hornets, and Mavs come next with Chris Paul lighting it up for the Hornets.
