2015-16 NBA Power Rankings: How All 30 Teams Shape Up Heading into Christmas Day

December 24th, 2015 by Grant Hughes Leave a reply »
The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes the Christmas miracle of fresh NBA power rankings.

The gap between the top two teams has all but disappeared, and as usual, the jostling among the Eastern Conference's unstable upper tier has resulted in some significant shake-ups since last week. Good luck getting a read on the East hierarchy.

At this rate, we'll be shuffling that mess around looking for answers well into April—all while wondering how in the world the once-inferior conference now faces the problem of having too many good teams to make sense of. 

As always, rankings take into account overall season performance with an eye toward recent trends. Stats like net rating and simple rating generally matter a little more than basic records, though wins and losses (especially strung together in streaks) carry weight.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, may the force be with you and pleasant reading!
