We are a couple weeks into the 2010-11 NBA season and we’ve started to see the cream rise to the top. In these NBA power rankings, we’ll take a look at the best of the best. Who are the top teams in basketball? Here’s our list of the top ten NBA teams:
1. Los Angeles Lakers (10-2)
The Lakers are the defending champs and continue to look very strong.
2. Boston Celtics (9-2)
No team in the league would look forward to playing the C’s in the playoffs.
3. New Orleans Hornets (9-1)
The Hornets were the last undefeated team in the league.
4. San Antonio Spurs (9-1)
I guess they aren’t dead yet. The Spurs have looked good to start the season.
5. Miami Heat (7-4)
The record isn’t impressive but the Heat are obviously supremely talented.
6. Orlando Magic (8-3)
The Magic have a deep roster but do they have chemistry issues?
7. Dallas Mavericks (7-3)
The Mavs are the only team to beat the Hornets. They should be good again.
8. Utah Jazz (8-4)
They keep digging holes but they also keep digging out of holes.
9. Oklahoma City Thunder (7-4)
The Thunder aren’t as great out of the gates as experts thought.
10. Chicago Bulls (6-4)
Once Carlos Boozer returns from injury, the Bulls should rise.
