In just one week, a bunch of storylines will start and people will be watching the league with a renewed interest in certain fans and teams, who are all aiming to dethrone the Golden State Warriors as NBA champions.
Which teams will you be watching closely?
The NBA Begins
The last few months have given NBA fans a wild offseason they won’t soon forget.
There was the exciting celebration of the Warriors but that was short-lived once Kevin Durant decided he wanted to leave the Brooklyn Nets.
Then there was endless speculation about Russell Westbrook with the Los Angeles Lakers, the total dismantling of the Utah Jazz, the moves of Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, Jimmy Butler‘s hair, Chet Holmgren‘s injury, Ime Udoka‘s suspension, Robert Sarver’s scandal, and finally, Draymond Green‘s punch heard around the world.
Yes, it’s been a busy summer.
But all of that will soon be in the rearview mirror.
In just one week, the teams will have to start playing regular season games and attempt to prove they have what it takes.
Right off the bat, all eyes will be on teams like the Nets, Lakers, Celtics, Cavaliers, and more.
It’s going to be an exciting season from the very first game.
NBA fans have waited patiently for the games to start and they are expecting to be rewarded with one of the best seasons in years.
