The NBA season is halfway through, but before it started, I made this list. Here are my predictions for the top 10 teams for the 2017- 2018 season.
The 10th best team will be the Los Angeles Lakers with the most hyped up rookies, Lonzo Ball, Brook Lopez, and Brandon Ingram.
Number 9 will be the Portland Trailblazers with Damian Lillard. Portland didn’t change that much this summer but have had potential the last few years.
The 8th best team, in my opinion, is the Minnesota Timberwolves. Their big three are Jimmy Butler, Karl-Anthony-Towns,and Andrew Wiggins.
The 7th best team in the NBA will be the Charlotte Hornets. Their only all -star type players are Kemba Walker and Dwight Howard.
The 6th best team from this off season is the Toronto Raptors. For the past couple of years, they have been competing with the Cavs. They have two amazing players - Demar Derozan and Kyle Lowry.
The 5th best team is the Houston Rockets, with the new big two, James Harden and the new addition of Chris Paul. They will definitely make it to the third round of the playoffs.
The team that will be the 4th best team is the Boston Celtics with a big three of Kyrie Irving who already won a NBA championship with LeBron and the Cavs, Gordon Hayward, who played with the Jazz, and finally Al Horford, who is pretty old and might retire soon.
The team that has to make the third round of the playoffs, the 3rd best team, is the Oklahoma City Thunder. Their big three are Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and our state player who left Carmelo Anthony.
The 2nd best team, the Cleveland Cavaliers With LeBron James , Isiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, and Kevin Love.
The #1 team in the NBA is the Golden state Warriors with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. They will be the best team for years.
These are who I think will be the top 10 teams in the NBA for the 2017-2018 season. I can’t wait to see how the season ends up looking like.
