Every Tuesday for the rest of the season, I’ll be posting 3 sets of power rankings: my college hoops top 10, my top 10 NBA teams, and a ranking of something unrelated.
Let’s do it!
Also Considered: Iowa State, Baylor, Northern Iowa, Wichita State, North Carolina
Villanova reaches their highest ranking of the season, while Gonzaga slides to their lowest. Oklahoma’s win over Kansas slides them into the previously vacant 10th spot.
Also Considered: Toronto, New Orleans
8. Oklahoma City
7. LA Clippers
5. San Antonio
1. Golden State
Wes Matthews injury drops the Blazers down the rankings as the Spurs slowly continue to creep higher and higher.
Characters on “The Wire”
Tons of spoilers. Some NSFW language. I warned you!
Also Considered: Prop Joe, Tommy Carcetti, Stringer Bell, Clay Davis, Maury Levy, Ziggy Sobotka, Wallace, Gus, Dookie, Nicky Sobotka, Prez, McNulty, Chris and Snoop, Marlo, Cheese, Poot, Cedric Daniels, Butchie, Snot Boogie
10. D’Angelo Barksdale
D’Angelo is surprisingly relatable. He deals with nepotism, morality, maturity, and on and on and on.
9. Bunny Colvin
The only character to look at the crazy situation they live in and try to shake things up. Everyone else either lives within “the game” or gets hurt trying the leave it. Bunny looked at the game and tried to flip the Monopoly board upside down.
Bubbles is strong enough that most of his storyline happens independent of the rest of the show and never drags or gets stale.
This ranking may be entirely based on the video above, in which Wee-bey confesses to three murders in exchange for a beef sandwich and some potato salad.
That caption says it all.
I don’t know that any character grows and changes as much as Michael, and he does it all in only two seasons.
The ultimate corner boy. From killing Wallace to his own death, Bodie saw it all.
And he looks EXACTLY like Russell Westbrook.
He’s good PO-lice.
Omar gets remembered for being really cool and saying things that blew your hair back, and it’s easy to forget how revolutionary he was as a character. Not only the first among non-stereotypical gay characters, but one of TV’s first beloved anti-heroes.
Omar is the popular choice here (He won Grantland’s bracket to determine the best), but for me it’s got to be the Bunk. He’s the funniest character on the show. He has some of the best quotes, both serious and humorous. And even when the show strayed (season 5’s serial killer story…), Bunk is the voice of reason.
I’ll leave you with one of the best scenes from the show, featuring my top two.
Now, I’m sure you all agree with all of this, so I can’t imagine any reason to comment on this post.
