NBA 08-09 Power Rankings

Posted on: June 1, 2008 3:02 pm

With the season coming to the end everybody is already looking into the next basketball season but who is the team to beat? well one might say that it's still to early to pick a number one or two in the rankings cause the finals havent started yet, Its a power ranking and even if the team i select lost the finals still does not mean anything but here it goes anyway:

Eastern Conference

Boston Celtics- Complete team that will be powerful in the next coming season.

Detroit Pistons- Getting old but still has the skills and talent as well as a great coaching staff.

Cleveland Cavaliers- LeBron James will still be able to take the 3rd spot.

Orlando Magic- Orlando has the best 3 point shooters in the East so they can score a lot of points.

Western Conference

Los Angeles Lakers- Kobe Bryant is too good and with his supporting cast in Gasol, Odom, and Fisher well you already know.

Utah Jazz- These guys are good.

New Orleans Hornets- Young and talented.

San Antonio Spurs- Veteran team with a lot talent and experience.


Boston Celtics

Detroit Pistons

Los Angeles Lakers

Utah Jazz

New Orleans Hornets

San Antonio Spurs

Cleveland Cavaliers

Orlando Magics

Those eight teams I picked will most likely have the best chance of making it to the finals but dont count out the Phoenix Suns in the West or the Miami Heat they still have Dawyne Wade.
