2018 NBA Power Rankings: Week Six

11/30/2018

The Detroit Pistons have found themselves back on top of the rankings, becoming the first team to reach the top spot more than once. This is especially impressive considering they are only the fifth best team in the East in terms of standings. The Mavericks are another team that finds itself toward the top of the rankings despite an average record, thanks to their consistent winning over the past 10 games (8-2 during that time.) The Bucks continue their up-and-down season, at least in terms of these rankings. Last week's top team finds itself in the cellar, just ahead of the tanking Chicago Bulls. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have established themselves as the biggest surprise of the early NBA season, claiming the #2 spot in the rankings, as well as the top spot in the Western Conference standings.

In this week's edition of FIFA proving they might be the most immoral and despicable organization on the planet, FIFA President Gianni Infantino took center stage. He claimed that the reason the World Cup should take place every two years is so that Africans will find dignity and stop migrating to Europe. I'm not joking; he really said that.

If I see or hear one more person complain about the NFL's overtime rules, I might lose it, so here I am to get my take off my mind so I'll stop bothering my close friends and family with it.
