How the hell someone ranked me 29th I don't get. Like, I can see being low 20s, but by just having Mitchell, I think that puts me clearly above the bottom tier of teams. Year away or so from actual playoffs, but I can't see finishing last even if Mitchell goes down.

I was also surprised how high I ended up ranking you (13th), I think I really liked the Garland - Mitchell - Keldon Johnson - Mobley quartet which imo isnt that far off from a team like Spurs who people have as the dark horse out West

I had you at 19 and was tempted to put you a few slots higher. Can't pencil in a W on those cross-town matchups anymore. Mobley could (should!) get a Wiseman-like ranking.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers (1/3)

Damn I remember the times I used to be ranked near the bottom… now I’m at top. This hit different fr!

Couple thoughts….

Was a bit shocked to see teams like Golden state, Pelicans, Portland and the clippers somehow get ranked out of the top 10 by someone. But I guess everyone has their own opinions.


One team I think is a bit underrated is Brooklyn.

BUT put some respect on my name

Wasn't my comment but your team has the feel of a Swiss team even with different parts. Well balanced with some hard nosed defensive specialists. He may have had CJ at one point too but I forget.

I think it's cool that there's a continuity feel with new ownership.

I had 'em:

Chicago
Toronto
Charlotte
Indiana

But very tightly ranked. Really depends on what the Sim does with Zion. Sounded like they might take early season into account with younger players and... well...

It all depends on how if the SIM gives Morant the pop for the early start of this year (which they were kinda hinting at making some adjustments in the early part of this year). If he gets 2 4 stars with Morant and Ingram. We also know Capela is a big the SIM loves. Highly EFF scoring, great rebounding, and shot blocking.

The east was very difficult for me to rank with everyone below CLE.

My top rankings were CLE at 1 then 5 straight Western Conference teams with POR, DAL, GSW, Clippers, NOP.

After that point IMO it started to get difficult to rank the teams.
