Unhappy Stein's Power Rankings: Best & Worst Over Past Six Seasons

Remember that "surprise" we vaguely mentioned in our final regular-season helping on April 14? As requested by a few loyal readers, here it is: a look at how all 30 clubs have fared with the committee (of one) since the 2002-03 campaign.

We've clicked back through the archives to find the rankings highs, lows and average placement for every team in our weekly, thoroughly un-automated pulse take of the league. The annual batch of rankings that will take us into training camp for the start of the 2008-09 season is coming Monday.

You can rank the teams yourself or click here to comment on our first six years together.

We've said this many times, too: If ESPN ever opens a Canadian bureau, we'll be first in the relocation line. But none of that can offset the suffocating nature of the Raptors' losing culture before Bryan Colangelo was hired away from Phoenix to run the franchise. The Raps averaged 29 wins from 2002-03 through 2005-06.
