It’s October, so it’s Halloween season, but it also means the NBA is back. All the talk and some drama will be moved aside as teams return to the court, hoping to do what the Golden State Warriors did last season in raising the Larry O’Brien NBA Finals trophy.
In the NBA, we don’t often see as much turnover year-to-year as we do with the NFL with contending teams. Most years, we can count on a team or two to emerge in the hunt, especially now with extra postseason spots available. In the Eastern Conference, I think two teams will climb up the standings from where they were in 2021.
