Week 4 of the NBA season tips off tonight (it's like football, y'all) which means it's time for us to see what's going on in the NBA power
ranger ranking world.
This week had some downers to say the least. With bowling injuries and what was quite possibly the worst 76ers game in the Doug Collins era, Sixer-land needed something positive which came from Jrue Holiday's performance on Friday against Utah and his lockdown defense on Uncle Drew yesterday. With the ups and downs of the past week, let's see where the experts have the Sixers slotted. Welcome to the Week 4 NBA Power Rankings, brought to you by "Alley Cats Strike".
