Poll: 2015/16 Team Power Rankings (No. 15)

NBA training camps have officially begun, and teams are now finalizing their preseason rosters. Every new season brings with it the hope for each franchise that it will conclude with the hoisting of the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. But for the more jaded fans — or practical, depending on your outlook — not every team has a realistic shot at making the playoffs, much less at being the last team standing when all is said and done and the playoffs have concluded.

We at Hoops Rumors want to know what you, the reader, think about each team’s chances this coming campaign. To help facilitate that, we’ll be posting a series of polls asking you to vote on where in the standings each franchise is likely to end the season. So please cast your vote below for the franchise you expect to end the season with the 15th best overall record. But don’t end your involvement with the simple click of a button. Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on why you voted the way that you did. We look forward to what you have to say.

    I’m still surprised to see the Jazz and Celtics already on the “Previous Selections” list. I think you could make a case for both still being alive at No. 15.

      I agree Chuck. I think both have a strong argument being better than the Mavs.

      But no higher than that. I think the top 14 are rock-solid. Seven per conference, and it’s virtually impossible to see any of those 14 missing the playoffs this year.

      It’s that last playoff slot in each conference that the middle of the pack is probably shooting for. I could see any of the teams in the community rankings from #15-23 claiming that last slot in their conference.

        I think you’re right. That also means it’s more valuable to grab the No. 1 seed in each conference this year, since you’ll ostensibly be playing a markedly weaker opponent in the first round.

    This is getting ridiculous. The Mavericks lost Tyson Chandler and Brandon Wright and Monta Ellis. Wes Mattews is coming off a torn achilles. Dirk is old. Parsons is always dinged up, and is only slightly above average in the first place. Deron Williams hasn’t done anything over the past four years but get older. Richard Jefferson opted out of his deal. The Knicks lost the most games in their history with Sam Dalembert on the roster last year, and to that you add Javale McGee????? Deron Williams, Raymond Felton, Chandler Parsons, Dirk Nowitzki and Zaza Pachulia is a defensive nightmare! A healthy Wes Matthews and a surprisingly good Justin Anderson can’t even fix that. Worst team in the league. Each of the last two years, not one but two teams have finished with a worse record than the Philadelphia Seventy Sixers. This year, it will be Dallas.
