Has the NBA Gone to Hell?

Amanda RobertsonContributor INovember 18, 2008

Who are these "experts" that write the articles today?

Has anyone looked at the Power Rankings, or just stopped looking because it's plain foolish?


For those of you who haven't, these are the top five:

Cavs, Lakers, Celtics, Rockets, and Suns.

I'm not as concerned about the top five as I am the rest of the Rankings.

Utah: 12th; Chicago: 15th; San Antonio: 19th; Miami: 22nd.

That's plain ludicrous.


It's sad, but today's game is based strictly on stats, just as many of the NBA awards are.

Is that the real reason Kobe won, because his stats were the best?

Whatever happened to the "this guy deserves it; he leads a team, works offense. He doesn't always win, but he should. He is the Most Valuable Player" kind of article?

Who is writing these articles?

Some StatBot.
