There's plenty of time left in the entertaining 2013-14 season for elite players to distance themselves from the pack (cough Dwight Howard cough) or rise up into their rightful places (cough Kobe Bryant cough), but a quarter of the season has already come and gone.
And with that 25 percent, the rankings at each position have undergone some seismic shifts.
They've changed enough since the last edition, but think back on these rankings from the first week of the season. There's at least one new player at every position, and much of the order has been completely shaken up.
But rather than go over more overarching generalizations, allow me to focus briefly on the Portland Trail Blazers. After all, the leaders of the Western Conference are making player-ranking history here.
For the first time, a team has all five starters represented. Two members of Rip City are in the top five, and the other three starters can all be found in the honorable mentions of their respective positions.
How's that for impressive?
