    Default ESPN ranks you guys #1......

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/powerr...on=2005&week=1

    You could make a case for Utah, Phoenix and Miami, but I certainly cant argue with Indiana. They have yet to beat a team thats actually won a single game this year, though....

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    While that might be the case and it's still early in the season, wouldn't you say they've been impressive enough considering the injuries they've had?

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    That's got to be an error. How could Miami not be #1? I mean - they have Shaq

    Wow. I'm just awestruck.

    Wow.

    About the Pistons:

    "Took Toronto lightly (bad) and didn't even deny it (worse). Hence the drop of three slots, and a stern warning, because complacency might be Pistons' biggest enemy this season."

    I do believe that a certain someone said that the Pistons may be content this year since they won the championship last year and that their bench was arguably a downgrade. If only I could remember who that someone was...

    Well, it must be true if ESPN said it. After all, they never make a mistake.

    Just because they showed a Pacer highlight of Fred Jones dunking the ball and referred to him as Jumaine Jones should not make a bad mark on their credibility.

    ESPN sucks whether they're lampooning or praising. I sure hope no one really cares about this.

    If they really looked at things objectively, the list would be pretty stagnant.

    I think they shake things up weekly, just to rile people up. It generates a little discussion, and gets the fans going if they take it too seriously.

    Yes, Larry Brown not coaching certainly had NOTHING to do with it....

    I'll give a little more time, and if it's still there, go ahead and get it myself; takes only a second. I don't have sigs turned on, but I'm sure someone will say something here if it's not gone relatively soon.

    Not having LB hurts the Pistons big time.

    Pacers I think played very well In Cleveland and not so great in the other two games

    As long as we keep playing well enough...

    Actually, Cleveland's the only decent team we've played so far. If we beat Minny, I'll start feeling pretty good. Our next 3 after that are VERY winnable... we'd be looking at winning our first 7-8 games of the season.
