Yes, we are rankings-crazy here at the home office, where we are now up to five sets of rankings — MVP, Rookies, NBA Power Rankings, Euroleague Rankings … and now Most Improved. We are so rankings crazy we just used the same word four times in the same sentence.
Later in the season, we’ll do the same for Coach of the Year and Sixth Man, which Jamal Crawford has probably already won, right?
There are going to be a lot of Knicks fans upset at who is No. 2, but New York has been getting 3s from everywhere; Dallas has been getting a savior. The nice thing about this ranking is that it likely will not remain as static as the others. You can burst onto this list as a mid-February D-League call-up if you make a big enough impact.
So this one is going to be fun.
On to the ranks …
