The NBA All-Star break is a short-lived vacation for the NBA community, filled with the weekend’s festivities. However, NBA players, coaches and front office personnel will still have the standings in the back of their minds with the second half of the season on the horizon.
Teams like the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat will look to keep their foot on the gas pedal by winning consistently. Other teams will fight to retain or attain a playoff berth. Meanwhile, teams in the NBA cellar will either look to better themselves or tank for a higher draft pick.
So, now that we’ve reached the All-Star break, where does your favorite team land in the power rankings? Is your team in in the driver’s seat, in the playoff hunt or wallowing in the NBA basement?
