With a wild NBA trade deadline finally over and there being about 6 weeks left of the regular season, this is the time where teams will begin to separate themselves and we will get to see who the true championship contenders are in the league this year.
With all of the talent that exists on every team, the NBA is as competitive as it has ever been and there is going to be a ton of exciting basketball to watch down the stretch. With some of the NBA’s biggest stars expected to return from injuries sooner than later as well, plenty of teams should be gearing up to make what they hope is a deep postseason run this season.
Last year, the Los Angeles Lakers were dominant from the opening tip of the season to the final buzzer sounding in the NBA Finals down in the NBA Bubble, but do they have what it takes to repeat as champions?
Or what about the Brooklyn Nets who have a loaded roster with their players combining for a total of 41 All-Star appearances? Can the Nets, led by James Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving win their franchise’s first championship this season?
Plenty of teams have a real chance to win a title this season, but let’s take a look at the four best equipped teams to win it all, especially after some of the moves they made at the trade deadline and in the buyout market.
