NBA Power Rankings: The Wizards Are The Third Worst Team In The League

The Wizards haven't had the best season in the NBA, but surely there are a handful of teams in the NBA that are worse than them, right? That's what I thought, until I looked at SB Nation's newest Power Rankings, which have the Wizards as the 28th team overall, or the third worst. Here is what they have to say.

The Wizards' home games this week against the Bucks and Spurs are mere distractions from the glory that should be the Streak Bowl, where Washington's 0-25 road record visits Cleveland to face a Cavaliers team that by that point may have lost 27 straight games. Only the Pistons and Clippers can mess it up now.

I'm looking forward to that game too, I think it should be a pretty good one; relatively speaking. But about the ranking...

It's a little bit lower than I expected, but the more I think about it, I can understand their justification. The Wizards are the only team that hasn't won a game on the road this season, and that is a pretty big knock against them. Good teams win on the road, and the fact that the Wizards haven't won any means that they aren't that good. The occasional win at home is nice, but it doesn't mean that they are a good team.
