Knicks still number 1 but the Clips has jumped to #2 (woot!) and beating tought playoff contenders (Miami, Spurs & Grizz) and for the most part, beating them badly. Lakers are back on the top 10 (woot woot) and D'Antoni starts today so we'll see how it goes. It seems like the Lakers really has more freedom to score now and the roster is just oozing with talent that they can get by w/o much coaching, hopefully D'Antoni could help than hurt.
Bucks is a surprise at #8, they are winning with Jenning and Ellis on the court at the same time, who would have guessed? No Bogut either, which was key to their playoff run 2 years back. Bobcats is doing well too, ranked 14th with a 5-4 start is pretty impressive considering they only won 7 games last year.
On the back end, Pacers have been very disappointing, such a good run last season and this year they are off to a terrible start, mostly due to injuries I guess but they should still be doing better than 5-7 right now. Nuggets is also disappointing, one of the deepest roster but they just can't put it together yet.
The Sixers are finding ways to win without Bynum. Nick Young can just flat out score and Jrue Holiday is quickly approaching elite point guard status. They need to make a big offseason move this year and they can be a force in the East for years to come.
I still love Jeremy Lin and although he is struggling shooting wise, I think he will be palying better as the season goes on. That being said, I almost feel bad for him when they play the Knicks this weekend. Felton is going to come out looking to absolutely destroy him, I expect Felton to put up about 20-25 shots that game. Lin does not have the killer instinct and I doubt that he has given that much more thought to the Knicks game than to other games, Felton on the other hand has probably been thinking about this game since the preseason.
