NBA Power Rankings: Where Every Team Stands Before 2012-13 Season

It's about that time again!

We're two weeks away from the start of training camp. That means it's time to put together a power ranking of NBA teams.

We don't have many absolutes at this point in time.

We know what happened last season and we know the transactions that have been made to transform, tweak and supplement each roster. But what we don't know is how playing time will be doled out, where the rotations will fall and which teams will be ravaged by injuries.

So many things that will boost up or tear down nearly every team can and will happen during the course of the season. For now, we can just guess where teams are in relation to the rest of the league, then make fun of how far off we were as we actually get some evidence to analyze.

For my pre-preseason power rankings, I'm deciding to go off how well I think each team will play in the regular season. You'll probably see a lot of Western Conference teams ranked higher than Eastern Conference teams. Right off the bat, you'll see teams like the Bulls, Knicks and Nets (all have become fairly polarizing in terms of title hopes) ranked much higher than many would expect.

I fully expect to underestimate a few teams and be pleasantly surprised by a few others.

With that said, let the madness begin.
