NBA Power Rankings: Suns move up to second as West dominates top five
Only 3 of the top 10 teams in the rankings are from the East. 1. Jazz (38-12, Last Week No. 1). Casual fans will say that defense/Donovan Mitchell/Rudy Gobert are behind Utah’s run to the top of the standings (and these NBA power rankings). They’re not totally wrong, but the reality is it’s the 3-ball that propelled the Jazz the NBA’s best record. Utah is averaging 43 attempts from three a game — the most per game in NBA history, topping the 2017-18 Houston team — and is hitting 39.5% of them. That’s 17 made threes a game on average, blowing out the previous record of 15.3 per game by those same Rockets.
In a move that some might call a reaction to, Kansas made sure to tie down head coach for the rest of his coaching career.
Roy Williams was Self’s predecessor at Kansas and left thein 2003 to join up with the Tar Heels. The move worked out for both sides though, as UNC won three national titles under Williams while Self won a national title in 2008.
But Kansas clearly didn’t want history to repeat itself this time around. So within 24 hours of Williams calling it quits, they gave Self a lifetime contract to keep plying his trade at Allen Fieldhouse.

Signing Bill Self to a lifetime deal is more than just an effort to keep other NCAA blue bloods from taking him away. It also shows that Kansas will back Self evenin the future.
The reaction on social media is one of understanding. Just about everyone recognizes that Kansas and Self are now tied at the hip for everything that happens in the future:
This move makes it clear Kansas is backing Bill Self no matter what happens with NCAA.

Baylor vs. Gonzaga for men's national title looking like classic Lakers vs. Celtics
In a must-see matchup two years in the making, No. 1 seeds Baylor and Gonzaga finally meet Monday night for men's NCAA national championship.Now that the goal has been realized and No. 1-seed Baylor will meet No. 1-seed Gonzaga in the final Monday night, Drew quipped: "I guess he won’t get that prayer text before this one.
Extending Bill Self was a must. The NCAA situation aside, KU had to get him signed for much longer. This (inevitable) move clearly shows where KU stands on the whole “Bill Self/KU vs. the NCAA” situation, too.

NBA Mock Draft 3.0: Four-man race at the top with no true consensus No. 1 pick
NBA Mock Draft 3.0: Four-man race at the top with no true consensus No. 1 pickHere’s a look at Yahoo Sports’ updated first and second round for the 2021 NBA draft.
Bill Self is 58 years old so he still may have upwards of a 10-15 years left of coaching. In 18 years at Kansas, Self has never had a losing season or missed an NCAA Tournament. Self himself hasn’t missed an NCAA Tournament since 1998 when factoring in his wildly successful runs at Tulsa and Illinois.
His Jayhawks are 522–118 overall and have never finished worse than third in the Big 12 standings. Self is 729–223 as a head coach.
Suffice it to say, Kansas have enjoyed a pretty good run with Bill Self at the helm.
That relationship will now continue – for better or worse – for the foreseeable future.
Will Bill Self win another NCAA title at Kansas?
