NBA Team Season Previews

Charlotte Hornets Team Preview

The Charlotte Hornets are suddenly one of the most exciting young teams in the NBA. Second-year stand-out LaMelo Ball has brought new energy and swagger to the franchise.

Washington Wizards Team Preview

The Washington Wizards underwent drastic changes during the offseason with the hopes that Bradley Beal will be around long-term. After finishing last year at just 34-38 it was clear the roster was going to need reconstruction.

Orlando Magic Team Preview

The Orlando Magic took a step back during the 2020-21 season after back-to-back playoff berths. It all started in “the bubble”, when Jonathan Isaac tore his meniscus, causing him to miss the entire season.

Detroit Pistons Team Preview

The Detroit Pistons went into the 2020-2021 NBA season with little expectations after winning only 20 games in the 2019-20 NBA season. Blake Griffin only played in 20 games before both sides agreed on a buyout agreement.

Sacramento Kings Team Preview

For the 15th season in a row, the Sacramento Kings failed to reach the playoffs, tying the Los Angeles Clippers for the longest NBA playoff drought. While they look to be headed to a 16th straight year, the Kings have promise and can see their bright future start to come to fruition in 2021.

Houston Rockets Team Preview

Toronto Raptors Team Preview

The Toronto Raptors missed the playoffs for the first time in seven years last season. They dealt with injuries to key players throughout the season and could never find their rhythm.

Oklahoma City Thunder Team Preview

The Oklahoma City Thunder were terrible in the second half of last year and their fans can expect a full season of it this year.
