Default Did u guy see this (Future Power Rankings)

Not sure how much you value Chad Ford and John Hollinger but they just released this on ESPN. Being a Jazz fan its nice to think the future is bright.


1. Miami Heat | Future Power Rating: 843
After winning the championship and then backing up the truck to load in some more veteran talent, we're bullish on Miami's future, too. The Heat have the game's best player in LeBron James, and that doesn't seem likely to change in the near future. And, of course, they surround him with two other All-Stars still in their prime; those facts alone push Miami to second in the players category, even with little to show for its investments in the roster surrounding its three stars. But sun and sand will take care of that part.


2. Oklahoma City Thunder | Future Power Rating: 822
The Thunder have arguably the best players and management, so what's not to like here? Oklahoma City places second in our latest survey, as it won the Western Conference with a core group still in its early 20s and figures to remain elite for several years to come.


3. Los Angeles Lakers | Future Power Rating: 816
We liked L.A.'s players before, but now we love them -- only Brooklyn increased its score more in this category, leaving the Lakers a close third behind Miami and Oklahoma City. Obviously, the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard are the reason. As long as the Lakers are willing to fork out $100 million in payroll and deal with the luxury-tax hit, they'll have one of the league's best rosters.


4. Utah Jazz | Future Power Rating: 774
A year and half ago, the Jazz looked dead in the water. Franchise legend Jerry Sloan retired in the middle of the season and All-Star point guard Deron Williams was abruptly shipped to the Nets at the trade deadline for a handful of prospects.

But after two really solid summers and a better-than-expected season in 2011-12, our optimism for the Jazz has never been higher. How does a No. 8-seed in the Western Conference without any stars warrant such a position?

Despite working in a less-than-desirable market, Jazz executive vice president Kevin O'Connor continues to be proactive in rebuilding this roster in a way that keeps the team winning while adding young pieces for the future.



5. Indiana Pacers | Future Power Rating: 702
The Pacers might not be the Miami Heat, but with Chicago's Derrick Rose expected to miss a large chunk of the 2012-13 season and the Celtics continuing to show signs of aging, Indiana might be the second-best team in the East right now. Given how young most of the Pacers' current roster is, they should stay in that position for some time.

how are the jazz 4 but the cavs 12? the cavs in kyrie irving have a young STUD and tristan thompson and waiters should be very good also...i think the jazz will be good but thats a little high...

id take irving, thompson, and waiters over hayward, favors, and burks ... that might be just me tho...we haven't seen how waiters will be but i'd honestly probably take irving and thompson over hayward favors and burks...irving is that good...

Not sure why the Clippers went from #4 all the way to #16. That is a joke, they had a pretty good offseason.
