As point after point is scored during the NBA's regular season, the hierarchy of the 30 teams is starting to become increasingly apparent. Of course, it will take a long time for everything to be completely sorted out, but we do at least have a bit of an idea about how the squads stack up.
From the cellar-dwellers of The Association to the reigning champions and other elite teams, these are the latest power rankings after most teams have had an opportunity to play one or more teams.
The rankings are no longer solely based on preseason expectations but they aren't comprised entirely from the performances of the teams thus far. After all, we're dealing with an extraordinarily small number of games that have been played.
Instead, the rankings were determined by an admittedly subjective mix of preseason expectations and performances up to this point.
So, where does your favorite team land?
