2007 NBA Rankings

The NBA has the typical West powerhouse teams of the past few years: San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks. However the West also has many players that could make a run. The Nuggets, Jazz, Hornets, Blazers, Rockets, Lakers, and Warriors are all legitimate threats. The Blazers have made an amazing run to be back in the thick of the race, but I don't think they will be able to keep up. They are definitely going to be a team to watch in the next few years.

In the East it's Boston, Detroit, Orlando and then the rest of the Field. Three top teams and a bunch of mediocre clubs following. Notice only 3 East teams in the top 13. The number 4-8 spots are wide open, but look for Washington, Cleveland, New Jersey, and Toronto to set the pace.
