With the start of the NBA Training camp around the corner, we take a closer look at some of the key dates for the 2023-24 NBA season. 

The dog days of the NBA offseason are officially in the review mirror and the start of training camps are less than a month away. Soon enough, basketball is going to be back in full swing and we’ll be overanalyzing every team’s start to the season. Heading into the start of the new basketball year, there are plenty of intriguing storylines to keep an eye on.

For example, will the Damian Lillard saga follow the Portland Trail Blazers and Miami Heat into the start of the season? Will LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers pick up where they left off in last year’s postseason, or will they fall back to reality in a deep Western Conference?

Amid the whispers, can Giannis Antetokounmpo fuel the Milwaukee Bucks to climb back up to the Eastern Conference? Is this the year that the Boston Celtics break through in the East and win their first Championship since 2008?

Will the overlooked Denver Nuggets be the favorites to repeat? Do the retooled Phoenix Suns finally have enough to win a chip? There is also a bevy of other eye-catching storylines in the Western Conference. Can the Golden State Warriors bounce back? Are the Sacramento Kings for real? Will the LA Clippers be able to remain healthy?

With some much intrigue surrounding the start of the season, it’s only natural to begin to look ahead.
