Not a lot of movement in this weeks Power Rankings. The top 4 teams remain the same as do teams ranked 10-15 and the bottom 5 teams. Guess that makes sense considering most of the week was spent on the all-star break.

    top 8 from the west. I’m not sure I buy that the west is THAT much better

    Having Buffalo ranked 9th is so ridiculous that I’m not going to even commit…enough said!!!!

    i think the “dominance” by the west has more to do with the fact that theres a crazy drop in terms of quality in the west. theres a lot of bad teams in the west, more so than in the east, where teams 1 through 12 and 13 have playoff chances. with only philly really having no chance, and teams like florida and the isles having a chance mathematically.

    in the west u have your good teams, and then your BAD teams, and the good teams feed off that. in the east i think u have more good teams. but thats just my opinion. the west wins in interconference games by a landslide but i still dont think theres that much of a gap.

    Yes, I had thought of that too except that St. Louis is 4-0-0 against the east, Los Angeles 4-2-1, and Phoenix 5-2-0. If those teams are among the wests worst teams they are still doing quite well against the East.
