I guess if you are going to have power rankings, you have to start somewhere even if you have absolutely no data from this season to base the rankings on. Power rankings seem to be popular amongst fans.
With almost the same Spurs team returning this year, I'm only concerned about 2 broad subjects by the end of the 82-game regular season:
1. Regain and retain their awesome offensive performance.
2. Strive and succeed in holding opponents to under 100 per game.
That's the only power I care about.
