Power Rankings: NBA Gears Up For Post-All Star Break Stretch

25. New Jersey Nets (26): First they lost out to LeBron, now Camelo. It makes sense though; while playing in New York is definitely more appealing than New Jersey and most other NBA cities, having to play with Brook Lopez, Anthony Morrow and Sasha Vujacic as your primary battle partners would negatively offset even the most desirable location.

24. Milwaukee Bucks (23): The “Fear the Dear” campaign has nearly vanished, and although the Bucks had high hopes coming into the season with Jennings, Maggette, Salmons and a healthy Bogut, they’re destined for the lottery.

23. Detroit Pistons (24): Fortunately for the Pistons, they are slightly less awful than every team below them – which means, even with 36 of their 57 games resulting in a loss, they still have a shot at the playoffs.

22. Los Angeles Clippers (22): It’s too bad that Blake Griffin’s dunks don’t ever count for more than two points. He should just start dunking from the three-point line so his slams can at least be valued more than everyone else’s.

21. Houston Rockets (20): With an easy schedule coming up this week (Detroit, Cleveland and New Jersey) the Rockets have a great opportunity to catch some momentum and ride it into possible playoff contention.

Next: 20-16
