This week the fine folks at The Lakers Nation were given the unenviable task of trying to get a bunch of bloggers to vote and then to combine the votes and comments into a meaningful post. Here are the results and my rankings are listed below. Thanks to a couple of quick starts by some Eastern teams, the Jazz somehow drop despite being undefeated without Deron.
||Man, I hate this team still.
||Dropped one already. Is the fire dying after getting their rings?
||Three convincing wins
||2-0 without D-Will.
||Scoring a ton and giving up a ton? That's not Piston's basketball.
||Ok, they might be good.
||Dennis Nedry is shaking in his boots
||Why do they do this to me every year? They start out crappy and get me thinking that they're finally done. They'll be back. They always come back.
||James and his subjects aren't getting the job done.
||Rose is getting it done. Still a bastard.
||Beat two Eastern contenders pretty handily.
||Great expectations. That book sucked too.
||Is there a more meh team right now?
||Billups to Denver? Bad for the Jazz. Marbury to Denver? Please, please, please.
||Grizzlies are impervious to magic.
||Where's your Oden now?
||How many bandwagon stops are there for the Heat this year? 55?
||Beating the teams they're suppose to beat and losing to the teams that are suppose to beat them.
||If you can correctly predict two games in a row for Minny, head to Vegas now.
||Getting Arenas back won't even matter.
||Getting Ellis back won't even matter.
||Carter deserves every miserable loss.
||1-1. You're not fooling me. You'll be lucky to get one more win this month.
||I was worried when they won their first game. Then the reality that is NY basketball set in.
||Could easily start out the year 0-9
||You could stuff all your sorries in a Sac and it would still.... Eh, I got nothing.
||Could pick up a couple more wins this month.
||End the season today and they're in the playoffs.
