    There has been a lot of talk about how the NBA should switched 1-16 seedings rather than 2 1-8 seedings. There are arguments both ways for it.

    Anyway, how would you rank the teams in the league if we did a 1-16 ranking?

    Here's mine(subject to change based on futures moves)

    1. Warriors
    2. Rockets
    3. Celtics
    4. Sixers
    5. Jazz
    6. Thunder
    7. Lakers
    8. Pacers
    9. Raptors
    10. Blazers
    11. Pelicans
    12. Spurs
    13. Bucks
    14. Twolves
    15. Nuggets
    16. Heat

    That would pose some pretty interesting 1st round matchups. I could see the Bucks moving up the rankins and Blazers moving down. Spurs could move either way.

    Lakers should be number 1 because they're the Lakers.

    Rest of the list doesn't matter.

    Not really. Think they're a 45-48 win type team. Actually should have placed Toronto over them as well

    Interesting. They had, IIRC, the 3rd best record in basketball from January on. Made short work of the Thunder.

    Granted a lot will depend on how Donovan Mitchell progresses.
