29. Cleveland Cavs (Last Week No. 28) — How great is this? is one board shy of a triple-dip with six seconds to go, so he decides to shoot on the wrong hoop and grab the board. The inmates are running the asylum.
28. Denver (Last Week No. 29) — Kiki's master plan is almost through Phase One: Tank the Entire Season. Phase Two is in progress: Make Camby Want Out.
27. Miami (Last Week No. 25) — You know why is the smartest player on the ? He's convinced everyone that his "sprained ankle" is hurt so bad, he won't embarrass himself anymore by playing again this year.
26. Toronto (Last Week No. 21) — Vince and Co. finally decided to call it a year and packed it in. The have now lost five straight and have thoughts of the lottery flying through their heads.
25. L.A. (Last Week No. 26) — Remember when the Clip Joint used to be the most exciting team in the League to watch? Neither do we. It was like 2001 was a mirage.
24. Chicago (Last Week No. 24) — Curry and Chandler are still balling well — not quite as productive as they were last week, but enough to know the experiment is still working.
23. Atlanta (Last Week No. 23) — Just once we want to see all of the Big Three go off on the same day. We won't hold our breath waiting for it to happen.
22. (Last Week No. 27) — is on a winning streak, and it has everything to do with the Stro' Show's emergence.
21. New York (Last Week No. 22) — Will wonders never cease? goes for 50 points again and the are only three games back from the final playoff position.

19. Milwaukee (Last Week No. 14) — The honeymoon in Milwaukee is over now that the have sunk out of the playoff picture with four straight defeats. Will Karl make like old times and blame GP for the falloff?
18. Golden State (Last Week No. 16) — The used to be in the playoff hunt but they couldn't keep the good times rolling. For some reason, Mussels refuses to pack it in and back down.

7. Portland (Last Week No. 6) — Their thirst for the top few spots appears to be waning. Pip needs to be a fixture in the lineup.
6. T-Wolves (Last Week No. 4) — How desperately does KG want home-court advantage? Bad enough that he dropped a triple-dip on Portland to ensure a win.
5. Philly (Last Week No. 8) — The Sixers are cutting down the . This isn't a celebration for winning a game, it's just what's happening to 's lead in the Atlantic. They'll own the East when it's all said and done.
