Rank 'Em: NBA Power Rankings

Created: September 25, 2009, 11:54 AM

How did offseason moves alter your NBA Power Rankings?

With the tipoff to the NBA season hours away, how do you size up the league for the season ahead, SportsNation?

Ron Artest recently said Lakers fans should blame him if the team doesn't defend the championship it won just months ago without him, but Artest's uniform was hardly the only thing to change over the summer. Are the Lakers still No. 1, or did moves that sent Richard Jefferson to the Spurs, Vince Carter to the Magic, Rasheed Wallace to the Celtics and, of course, Shaquille O'Neal to the Cavaliers alter the balance of power?

It's a long season ahead, but it's never too early to figure out which teams will be contenders and which will be merely pretenders.
