NBA Power Rankings - All-Star Break Edition

The all-star break is here. With less than half the season left it's time to see where the teams are ranked for the home stretch of the season. The best record wise and in many power rankings are the Warriors, who not as good record wise as last year are still dominating the NBA. The Spurs in the West look to give the Warriors some competition. The East keeps getting better and chasing the Cavaliers but the Raptors with the edition of Ibaka was a piece they have been looking for. The Celtics are another team which is close behind but still maybe one superstar away to pose a real threat to Cleveland. The MVP race is turning into a great race down the stretch. We know the story of Westbrook and all the triple doubles, but the team isn't winning enough for him to be placed in first. LeBron James is quietly having one of his best seasons ever has the Cavs sit atop the Eastern Conference. James Harden's team who is winning and he is putting up some incredible numbers, currently in first in the MVP race.
