Warning: These aren't your basic, boring power rankings. If you want to look at an objective list of records in order, go to the standings page.

Not here. These rankings aren't afraid to avoid trends, break from popular opinion or ignore hot and cold streaks.
The following is my first installment of "Realness Rankings." Enjoy and comment!
