Hollinger Power Rankings Puts Heat on Top

The latest NBA power rankings from ESPN columnist John Hollinger have placed the Miami Heat ahead of the pack. This is sure to cause some controversy considering the second team on Hollinger’s list is the undefeated, back to back champion, Los Angeles Lakers.

Hollinger is known for his unique statistical system known as PER Diem, and hasn’t been adverse to controversy since he started this particular method. For the rest of the league, however, it is slightly strange to see a team with a 5-2 record atop the rankings. Especially when there are teams with records of 7-0, 6-0, 5-1, and two teams with 6-2 records, all of which are better than the Heat’s current record.

While Hollinger certainly has a method to his apparent madness, do the Heat deserve to be the top spot after their rather disappointing start? Let the debate begin.

Hollinger is a big moron

  • wth is this?!?! this guy must be stupid to put the burnouts or whatever the hell their names are atop this list.

  • You look at the stats he uses and the only thing the Heat have on the Lakers is SOS.. last time I checked this wasn’t the BCS.

  • Hollinger rankings don’t mean diddly squat because the column “who’s knuttsak he’s gobbled up most” is not on there in which the Heat would have his highest score.

  • He’s a Laker hater. That’s fine. I like how the Lakers are flying under the radar rite now anyway.

  • is this same guy who predicted lakers will lose last year to the celtics and why he is still with espn he is a lakers hater for all i know , always been against the lakers i hope they shipped this bald headed guy out of espn coz he is never fair when it comes to the lakers is all full of shit….

  • its not like it matters. we have 2 semi-difficult games in our next 7. if we win those, we can easily go at least 14-0. then we’ll see what hollinger has to say.

  • I thought the same thing. that this guy is a Lakers Hater. But, maybe he is or maybe he’s not.. then again on a story he posted after the finals he did Rank The LAKERS #1 OF ALL-TIME FRANCHISES over our hated rivals the green boogers http ://sports.espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2009/columns/story?columnist=hollinger_john&page=FranchiseRankings-Lakers
