We take a look at each team’s early season storylines, and decide whether to buy or sell
In every NBA season, there are many things that we can expect to happen over the course of the 82 game schedule. And plenty of the time, those said things fluctuate. Although, for some, we know what each team is, or is eventually going to be, when it’s all said and done.
This season, though, it’s quite different. So many different moving parts this offseason has caused uncertainty around the league.
Heck, five games into the season, we don’t even know what the San Antonio Spurs are going to be this season. Even though we can assume that they’ll be the “Spurs” once again, we can’t assume that yet. It’s quite weird.
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are both missing big time, LeBron James is trying to gel with his new team, Kobe Bryant doesn’t have a worthy squad around him and there’s no clear contender favorite in the Western Conference.
We kind of, sort of know what’s going to happened this NBA season, but we’re also not certain.
That’s why we need to buy and sell some of the NBA’s stock. Here we break down each team’s stock and decide whether to buy or sell one of their bigger storylines in the early NBA season.
