The ‘What to Watch’ box displays the best matchup of the upcoming week, as determined by adding together the current Average for the two teams playing in each game. The smallest aggregate current Average will determine which matchup is listed in ‘What to Watch’.

The ‘Biggest Movers’ box shows which teams moved up and down the most from their Guru Rank (current week versus previous week) and by how much.

The numbers in the ‘Average’ column are calculated by adding together a team’s rankings in the List of Seven and then dividing by seven. The List of Seven includes: ESPN, Yahoo, CBS Sports, SI, NBA.com, SB Nation and ProBasketballTalk.

If two or more teams have the same Average for a given week then the team with the better Strength of Schedule will be ranked higher.

The ‘Guru Rank’ column indicates each team’s ranking based upon the Average for a given week.

The ‘Move’ column shows each team’s movement by comparing the Guru Rank for the current week with the Guru Rank for the previous week.

The ‘Hi/Lo’ column shows a team’s highest and lowest power ranking for the current week across the List of Seven weekly power rankings.
