*UPDATE*   CBS Sports and Sagarin added.  Notice the ranking of Sagarin is so tied to last year.  He has the Brooklyn Nets at 29th and Orlando Magic at 13th.  Of course his rankings will level out after a few games are played.  Already the Lakers are down to 12th, but I don’t know what they were yesterday.

Here we go again.  The merry chase to the top!  All eyes are on the Heat to repeat as is reflected in the rankings.  Are the Lakers the team to beat in the West, or is the Thunder still the team even with James “The Beard” Hardin now in Houston?

Preseason rankings don’t mean much as they go a lot by last year and the possibilities because of trade acquisitions, like for the Lakers.   Then there are the sports writers’ ‘Wannabe’ favorites like the Knicks and now the new Brooklyn Nets.  So, how do they see it stack up for the coming year and where are the Grizzlies in that stack?

Average ranking for the week from 10 polls is 9.5.

    I see that Hollinger’s are from April but, damn…I need some of what he’s smoking.
