Rank 'Em: NBA Power Rankings

Created: December 29, 2008, 10:42 AM

Kobe Bryant had 27 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the win over the Celtics.

In the past few weeks, you've been trading the No. 1 spot between the Celtics and Cavaliers with the Lakers close behind. So what happens when the Celtics lose to the Lakers and Warriors back-to-back while the Cavaliers keep winning?

The Christmas Day loss to the Lakers followed immediately by a 10-point loss to an 8-22 Golden State team has taken some of the luster off the Celtics and stoked the debate about the best team in the league.
