Somehow it is already the NBA All-Star break. Half of the NBA season has been played (for most teams that did not face chunks of postponements at least). Given the nature of the short week and as a way to look at where we are to this point, each section will focus on some of the overarching points of the season for each team thus far, not just their games of the week.
The ranking will be based on the current trends, but the focus will be something broader. We will discuss the current rumors swirling around teams and what recent changes in players and coaching personnel could do to impact the rest of their season.
Not only is it the All-Star break but the trade deadline is just three weeks away Where does every team stand at the halfway point?
Some teams have fallen short of expectations and let their coach go. Others are changing the narrative around them as they continue to rack up wins and bolster their playoff resume. The season has been a mad dash through 11 weeks so far and some teams are only just starting to find themselves. Hopefully, a week off for everyone not traveling down to All-Star Weekend gives the NBA community a chance to relax and catch their breath. The second half will be no less hectic, with plenty of back-to-backs and three games in five nights. This NBA season is not for the weak at heart.
Now, let’s start the Week 11 Power Rankings.
