We're a month into the NBA season, and the standings are beginning to take shape.

There are certainly a fair share of surprises -- like the Houston Rockets, a few months removed from a Western Conference Finals appearance, firing coach Kevin McHale and currently sitting at 5-9, their worst 14-game start since 2010-11. After a 17-win season last year, the New York Knicks and rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis are impressing the NBA world, sitting above .500 after 17 games.

The Golden State Warriors faced some unfair skepticism entering the season, but any fan who claims to have predicted their current success is more than likely a liar.

At 16-0, Golden State is following up their championship campaign with the NBA's best start ever. They've cemented themselves as the class of the league. The question that remains: Who's their biggest threat in the West.

In this week's edition of our rankings, we try to figure that out.

Click through the gallery above to see how we see things, and tweet us at @AOLSports with your answer to this question: Is it time to cross the Rockets off the list of contenders?
