Happy New Year, everyone! Allow me to welcome you to 2014 with a brand-spankin'-new edition of the weekly NBA power rankings.
After a light stretch across Christmas, the Association was back in full force in time for the end of 2013, with plenty of noteworthy results therein. Each of last week's top eight suffered at least one loss since the last edition hit the Interwebz, while four teams slipped into losing streaks of five games or more.
As you might imagine then, the rankings have shifted quite a bit just a few days into the new calendar. Who knows what other craziness might be in store for this year?
In the meantime, have a look through the hierarchy as it stands right now, and let me know what you think in the comments below!
