With power rankings being all the rage these days we decided to give it a try, but with a Lakers Nation twist. As you will surely notice, the Lakers aren’t on our list of teams. This is because we’re going to take a look at the teams that will be challenging the Lakers for the throne, so obviously Los Angeles won’t be on the list. So take some time to check out our rankings and get to learn the names of the teams competing to overthrow the champs.
29. Los Angeles Clippers are 1-13 but are being recognized by everyone because of the great highlights that Blake Griffin is making.
28. Philadelphia Sixers are 3-10 and it does not look great thus far for Doug Collins as head coach.
27. Toronto Raptors are 5-9 but they are definitely suffering without Chris Bosh.
26. Houston Rockets are 3-9 and suffering badly with the injuries to Yao Ming and Aaron Brooks.
25. Washington Wizards are 4-8 but the rookie John Wall is making a name for himself in the young season.
24. Detroit Pistons are 5-8 and looks like they made a bad choice to sign the injury prone Tracy McGrady.
23. Minnesota Timberwolves are 4-10 but are a fun young team with the great duo Kevin Love and Michael Beasley are creating together.
22. Charlotte Bobcats are 5-8 and are a work in progress.
21. New Jersey Nets are 4-9 and the only great sign here is that they are winning games.
