NBA Power Rankings

My first fanpost!

As of today, ESPN, NBA.com, and the elusive Sports Illustrated rank the Orlando Magic at Number 4 in the league, just behind--you guessed it--the Celtics (1), the Lakers (2), and the Cavs (3). A choice snippet from Marty Burns at SI, who likes to rank the Magic in the lowest possible spot he can (they were ranked at 9 last week):

OK, now we can start taking them seriously. Even without Dwight Howard (sore knee), they won at Utah on Saturday to make it three of four (they also had a win at Portland) on their West Coast road trip with one contest left at Golden State (Monday). They are 9-3 on the road for the season, following an impressive 27-14 road mark a year ago.

Thanks, Marty. I know how hard that was for you.
