    Default NBA mid summer Power Rankings

    The folks at WWW.NBA.COM are back with a new edition of the power rankings. There are a few surprises in terms of positioning. I was wondering what the RR community thinks of Toronto's rank on the list. Is it overreaching or justifiable? Anyways here you go.

    i think 20th is a good place to put us right now. a bit up from where we ended the season. i strongly disagree with both the nets and knicks placements. both of them should be mid teens at best to me.

    +1 Good points. I also found myself shaking my head at Brooklyn's positioning. With NYK I see them finishing with the 6th or 7th seed in the east. I cant seem to understand Dallas and Minny's positioning. I haven't been following them at all. Does anyone have any idea why they fared so well in these power rankings?

    i think dallas didn't have a bad off season, brand/collison are nice pickups for them and they still have dirk. minny i think got a bit too much of push but they did add roy who could give their bench a massive upgrade.

    Ok makes sense. I'm interested to see what Roy has in the tank. I am really pulling for him. With Dallas, i do like the acquisition of a guy like Mayo. And I noticed they picked up a couple interesting rookies in Crowder and Cunningham. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    They got Mayo, Collison, Brand and Kaman. They drafted Crowder and Cunningham. They retained Delonte West, drafted a very old rookie who should be able to be a role player capable of spot minutes off the bat in James.

    They addressed their holes - got younger, have a faster point who will be able to hold his own and get serviceable big men. O.J Mayo has potential, but I see him as the perfect replacement for Terry.
