A lot has changed in the NBA since the last installment of the power rankings. Look no further than the New York Knicks, for example, who are now the only team in the league left with an unblemished record.
Davids have slain Goliaths a few times, but favorites have also held serve against the underdogs plenty of times during the early portion of the 2012-13 season.
As a result, it's time for a new set of rankings.
Going from No. 30 to No. 1, these rankings will reveal quite a bit about the 30 teams in the NBA. First, you'll learn where they all stand right now, as determined by a subjective mix of preseason expectations and actual performance thus far.
You'll also see the current title odds for each of the squads in The Association. These are much more telling as to where teams will finish the season. Don't be surprised when there's a rather large discrepancy between a team's title odds and its spot in the rankings.
