The 2022-23 NBA season has been a very exciting one, with some historic achievements, monster trades, big disappointments, and shocking surprises.
But every basketball fan knows that the regular season is wholly different from the postseason.
Everything changes when the playoffs begin.
And those playoffs will begin soon.
As noted by NBA Muse on Twitter, March 9 marks one month from the end of the NBA regular season.
Exactly ONE MONTH left of the 2022-23 NBA Regular Season.

This means that within the next few weeks, there will be a lot to pay attention to.
In fact, this might be the wildest conclusion to a regular season that we have seen in some time.
A big reason for this is the close proximity of many teams in the standings.
When you look at the Western Conference, for example, multiple teams are sitting just one or two wins away from each other.
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks have the same 34-33 record right now, and the Los Angles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans both have 32-34 records, while three teams below them have a 31-35 record.
Things are tight across the board, from the top of the standings to the near bottom.
That means that every single win or loss is very important and incredibly consequential.
But the Eastern Conference has some serious competition too.
The Milwaukee Bucks are barely ahead of the Boston Celtics for the top spot in that conference, while other teams such as the Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks, Toronto Raptors, and others are all scrapping with each other to climb higher.
Meanwhile, multiple injuries are popping up all over the league, meaning that teams’ chances are rising and falling daily.
The next month will be a very eventful one and NBA fans will be eagerly tuning in.NEXT: Devin Booker Has Become A True Team Leader Lately
