    Default ESPN Puts us back on top of Power Rankings

    1 (3) Pacers 31-11 Viva Las Least: We've seen enough from Pacers, halfway in, to guarantee that there will not be another 11-19 finish this season. This promotion is their reward for making the oft-bashed East a bit legit.
    Meh, I'll take it. Still hate the term "Least" , though.

    Id call any conference that cant even SNIFF a title in half a decade "least."

    The Pacers got the #1 spot. They deserved it. Be happy.

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

    I agree with you Kstat. The east is still loaded with a lot of losers. Just take a look at the Atlantic. Yech!

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I have to admit, thinking about next year's new South East Division makes me *shudder*

    Pistons win 12 in a row but they are only ranked 4th?

    Do they have to win 20 in a row to get respect?

    That was the correct ranking, Im sorry to say. Minnesota and Indiana have had more impressive wins, and Sacramento has the best overall record. If they go undefeated THIS week, they will be at #1, and nobody, even HERE, will argue otherwise.

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

    I'll argue! I may not make good points but I will argue
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    If the Pistons can beat Indiana, San Antonio and Minnesota they should be #1.

    Yes they should....I think they can win 2 of the 3 games, but who knows...
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    The Pacers took the Lakers to the last minute of Game #6 before they fell. That's a big difference from the embarassing performances that Philly and NJ chunked up in The Finals the past three years. If you say three years instead of half-decade then I'll agree completely.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
