After four months of no basketball, the NBA is gearing up for the resumption of the 2019-2020 season. With such a long hiatus fans can be forgiven for forgetting the current narratives surrounding the NBA. We have taken a look around the league and selected the three main plots to follow upon its resumption.
The Western Conference has, for a while now, been nothing short of stacked. The playoffs are the prize and the competition to make it is as fierce as ever.
As we get closer to the trade deadline the rumours keep coming. This time it is Jrue Holiday. He is currently on the New Orleans Pelicans roster playing either point guard or shooting guard.
The worst start under Popovich proved that the San Antonio Spurs are in a pinch for the first time in years. The front office has a tough decision to make: Should they keep their star shooting guard DeMar DeRozan or trade him and develop the young core they currently have?
This offseason we have seen the Warriors dynasty get dismantled which had us thinking where do they rank amongst the all-time greatest dynasties?
The NBA Playoffs begin this Saturday. Late season drama was limited, with the Detroit Pistons holding onto the eight seed in the East. We have known the Western Conference playoffs for a while, but the seedings altered in the final days of the regular season, changing the first-round matchups.
San Antonio Spurs are riding a 8-0 streak in March. DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge are competing for the title of the Spurs' best player.
Will the Rockets really contend again?
San Antonio and Kawhi Leonard have a lot of work to do over the next few weeks. The outcome could prove to definitive in the NBA offseason.
