NBA Bloggers Power Rankings - Week 1

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.

Rank Comments Nov 3rd
