    No more KING OF NORTH in the East Now the new King in the East next season is Giannis the Greek KING Freak Autetoukompo

    • East is trash. The good teams are in the West. Rather be King of the West than east.

    • Yea ok 😆🤣

      @Dopemane Your high on bath salts if u seriously think the Sixers are winning the East! They lost Butler who is an elite 2 way player and Reddick! They have no shooters at all…ZERO! and don’t tell me Harris and Richardson are good 3 shooters cause that’s laughable. Simmons CAN’T and WON’T shoot and Embiid misses half the season injured, sick, and out of shape

    • @Dopemane Joel embiid gonna retire before the sixers come out of the East

  3. Those power rankings are a joke. Several teams wildly out of a reasonable order and where’s golden state at

  4. Raptors will still be top three in the East. If you don’t think so you’re fuggin stupid. In playoffs not having Leonard will hurt them, but they’re a system team. Losing Green is nothing because he was garbage the entire playoffs.

    Jokic wasn’t a difference maker in the post season? Oscar Robertson is the only one to ever put up the same numbers in their first postseason…

    • He hsd some ups and downs, but def performed , go back and check hit some game winners and erything. Dame time and cj were monsters tho, snd meyers leonard, zach collins, both of them teams way better then get credit for. Remember nugs aint even tasted the playoffs in sooo long. Portland jus keep runnin into the warriors.

    • @Don Snow jamal murray plsyed injured. Gary harris came from 3 injurys last season. Will barton was injured and bot in shape. And denver is much younger than portland and thr blauers guards r in their prime. The nuggets teamm was the youngest team in the play offs and the 3 or 4rd youngest in thw whole nba. And they were tired of the 7 games against the spurs. Beside millsap no one of then played in the play offs. The nuggets r one of the best teams in the nba.

    • Miguel Rodriguez so if you don’t win a championship anything you do is irrelevant? Jokic put up ridiculous numbers in the postseason

    • Miguel Rodriguez it just doesn’t happen overnight, in a few years they’ll be great

  6. Bucks should not be number 1. Clippers should. The lost of mirotic and brogdon two very good shooters that bucks need to surround giannis since his shooting is not terrible but not consistent. While clippers have one of the most balance team in the nba in my opinion.

      @Eagleye17 18 Well, he left the NBA to get an 80 mil six-year contract to play in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Barcelona. As a life decision, the offers he had from Dallas, Utah etc can’t even begin to compare. Hell, for me not many places in the world could compete with Barcelona, and definitely none of these are in the US. Don’t think the Bucks played their best basketball in the playoffs. Actually they performed rather poorly; even though they reached the ECF, I’d say Philly was a much tougher opponent for the Raptors. The Bucks steamrolled the Griffin-less Pistons, then had that dysfunctional mess that was the Celtics in the semis. Honestly I think this was detrimental to them because they got kinda cocky, maybe thought they were better than they actually were (their fans sure did). After that 2:0 lead in the ECF this cockiness reached its max probably, and then you come back down to earth and the realization that your star cannot (yet) carry you to the championship with his current set of skills strikes you in the arse. Some of the money they paid to keep their roster pieces is highly suspect if they have championship aspirations. Middleton + Bledsoe combo is not worth 50-55 mil per year. I hope Giannis can develop the shot, but the mechanics just do not make me too confident this will happen, and with the contracts they are throwing around I am not too sure that the Bucks will be able to get a championship from this generational talent they have drafted/developed.

    • @Eagleye17 18 he left the nba because he is playing at home for a ton of money

    • Keep sleeping on the Lakers

    • The Bucks played their best basketball with those two out of the lineup and Mirotic was a total bum in the playoffs. Why do you think he left the NBA? Middleton was able to play his game with Brogdon out and they saw and realizied that after the ECF. They have great shooters on their bench yet and players that played better than Mirotic in the playoffs by far. Brogdon has foot issues as well. I love that guy but he actually didn’t fit them anymore. They will actually be better suited for the playtoffs if they stay heathly.

    • The difference being the new clippers squad hasn’t played one minute together. The bucks have and were the best team in basketball last year hence why they are number one not that hard to understand

  7. Ryan Hollins made that list, the Bucks and Nuggets 1,2 😂🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  8. How do the nuggets not have difference makers Jokic is a top 5 talent in the league. Murray’s showed he has potential to be a difference maker for years to come.

    • @JR Thomas better RIGHT NOW, Giannis, Curry, Lebron, Harden, Kawhi, Paul George, AD, Embiid, Lillard could all have a claim to be better then Jokic

    • Because all of that “difference” making got them eliminated in the second rou nd

    • @JR Thomas doesn’t matter if he’s going to be the best I’m talking about now… He’s not better than any of those guys

    • _KURSE_ 7111 harden curry and Giannis. Curry and harden are aging and Jokic is a killer at 24. Imagine prime Jokic 🤢

  9. Why was Nick talking about the playoffs. It’s power rankings for the preseason not the playoffs

  10. Nick was reaching Ryan Hollins level

  11. disrespecting the nuggets. remember the gsw also got bounce in the playoff in 2014 then they comeback strong.
    nick you need to play hockey so we could meet in the ice.

  12. Nikola Jokic Playoff Stats (14 games): 25ppg, 13rpg, 8ast/game 50FG%, 393P%, 84FT%

    • @Lord of the Dings do you think theyll miss it this year? Honestly in a series are you taking Lakers or Nuggets? Cuz ill take Lakers anyday, nobody on that team is guarding LBJ…. even a lil bit

      @AT Tatara LeBron and AD didn’t make the playoffs

    • They also didnt get out of the second round

    • Trash I’ll put Denver on 7 or 6 seed. No wait, six is too high, nevermind, nuggets at 7 seed

  13. Bucks roster

    PG bledsoe
    SG Crawford
    SF Middleton
    Pf giannis
    C Brook
    Robin Lopez

  14. well .. see ?? this is sums up everthing .. if you wanna be top team, you should doing a lot in free agent .. that’s why nick doesnt agree with that list .. difference maker ?? are you really watch the game ?? thats why you should watch other team too .. dont watch lebron or kawhi only .. if you watch last year denver, this wasn’t surprise at all .. if we talking about amount of big name superstar, yeah they will lose to clippers, but if we talking team in general, i see nuggets more with all the chemistry they have and player who still can improve and break out ..

  15. Lol this fruit loop in the tan suit dumber than his buck teeth suggest…. and that’s saying something

  16. Jokic was almost soloing the Blazers until Hood and CJ went off

  17. The Jump has never been so good, loving the discussion over the gossip for sure.

  18. That slight jab at Nick from Brian tho about Denver 😂😂😂

  19. Only thing Windhorst 💨 ever been 1st at was eating 🍩🌭🌮🍔🍟🌯🍗🥤🥮🍨🥧🧁🍰

  20. Nobody takes your bogus power rankings seriously ESPN…. Literally any other sports network would be more Legitimately than you when it comes to basketball opinions
