NBA Power Rankings: Where Every Team Stands Heading into Week 5
Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The NBA is seven-deep right now. What I mean is, by the arbitrary standards vested in me, there are seven teams that could feasibly win a title. 

Q=While a Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks or Memphis Grizzlies championship feels so strange to fathom, it's not beyond the realm of possibility. A San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City, Miami Heat or Los Angeles Lakers title were all imaginable in the preseason and still are—even with L.A.'s recent struggles.

Perhaps you would add Boston to this list, based on recent history. Maybe there are a few more teams on your radar—such as the preseason-hyped Denver Nuggets.

The NBA only invites a few title outcomes, despite carrying 30 teams. As the season progresses, it will become increasingly clear that much of the league is window shopping while a select few battle for the biggest prize.
