    Pau Gasol is better than Tim Duncan right now.

    Atlanta Hawks (19-7) # 2 really!
    Dime your losing ground!!!!!

  • Derrty

    Magic and Cavs ranked below Dallas? Really, Dime? That’s like ranking Anderson Verajao ahead of Brian Scalbrine. That just doesn’t work. It should read:

    1. Lakers
    2. Boston
    3. Atlanta
    4. Orlando
    5. Cleveland
    6. Dallas
    7. Denver
    8. Phoenix
    9. Houston
    10. Portland

    And, I’m even a die-hard Orlando guy. You can’t ignore what Hotlanta has been doing to people. But, you can’t rank Dallas ahead for the Magic and Cavs. Not yet, anyway.

    I know these rankings are based on a teams season to date but it just doesn’t seem right that a team like Utah who went 2-3 with wins against NJ and Charlotte, gets a #9 ranking. The same can be said for Detroit at #20 who lost all four of their games last week. Currently, Portland, Houston, and San Antonio all have a case to be ranked higher than Utah while #’s 21-24 should all be ranked higher than Detroit.

    Good list, but how do you rank 19-7 Atlanta ahead of 21-5 Boston? Sure the C’s lost to Philly, but Atlanta was beat by Chi-town.

    I’m sure this is the last time you’ll consider a championship ring for Matt Harpring.

    The Lakeshow looks unstoppable. I love it. Bring on the hate!

    LOL at Celts fans hating on the Hawks. Last time I checked, the Hawks beat you guys in your own building. And losing to Chicago on the road isn’t as bad as losing to Philly at home.

    As for the Mavs, they JUST beat Cleveland WITHOUT Dirk. They have to be ranked ahead of the Cavs. And Orlando got blown out by Miami, so I can see their ranking being where it is.

    @ Kevin

    Great post.
    Haters, please read post #9 so you understand why your team is where they at

  • Travis

    @ Derrty
    How can Dime rank Dallas ahead of Cleveland? Easy – Dallas JUST BEAT CLEVELAND without Dirk. Do you follow basketball?

    lakeshow all the way.look out cavs and Shaq’s sorry ass.He needs to leave the league and get an honourable All star game appearance.he has got to be one of the most obnoxious figures in the league ever.

    Mitch Kupchak and Chris Wallace should be candidates for co-executive of the year every year since that Pau for a bunch of cookies trade… Mitch should send Chris christmas cards every year for saving his GM status.

  • Ernesto

    I think Harpring’s chances of winning a ring improved from 0 to 5 percent.

    San Antonio at #12? Are you fucking concussed?

    Ranking Utah, Houston, and Portland ahead of the Spurs is a ranking made by brain dead whales or someone who doesn’t watch the NBA.

    The Spurs have had to deal with 2 of the Big 3(4 now with RJ) being injured most of the year.

    Trust in this, when March comes around, San Antonio will be ranked 3-4 by most respectable journalists, something I am having major doubts considering you as.

  • http://dimemag.com Austin Burton

    @Re-Up Gang — And when March comes around and the Spurs are playing like a Top-4 team, they’ll be ranked as such. This is for how the teams are playing right now, and if you’ve watched the Spurs at all, you know they’re not playing up to their potential. The Jazz have beat SA three times already this year, and the Spurs are 1-1 against Portland and Houston.

    I am a huge Celtics fan. The Celtics are playing the Bucks in Milwaukee and I want to go.i’m planning to see them & i get my tickets from Ticketsinventory.com …but I was wondering if there is a certain section where the opponent fans sit?
