NBA season predictions are in full swing as the basketball season kicks off

The NBA has already started, but it is still not in full swing. The teams are still looking for their style, and the fans are amazed by some of the leader’s decisions. To help you keep an eye on the NBA season, we’ve rounded up the Top 5 NBA teams and players to watch out for as the season progresses.

NBA Prediction: Top 5 teams that want a title

Let’s start with Grosbasket’s NBA prediction with each team’s goal for the season: the NBA championship title. Last season, it was the Golden State Warriors who beat the Boston Celtics in the finals. Of course, both teams are already on our list, and three others have joined them – two from the East and one from the West. American bookies also came to help us predict the NBA season and they have these five teams in the first five places. Which will prevail in the end?

NBA Prediction: Top 5 basketball players we haven’t seen in a long time

Injuries are terrible, no doubt about it. In sports, they also cause several months or even several years of absence from competing . It’s the same in the NBA, but the next five basketball players are finally returning. John Wall last played on April 23 last year, when he had 27 points, 13 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 blocks. The attractive organizer of the game was definitely missed, so we are excited to watch him play again in Los Angeles.

Ben Simmons last played against Atlanta in the last game of the playoffs on the 20th of June last year, he scored 5 points, 13 assists and 8 rebounds. He can be seen as the third member of the big three in Brooklyn.

The next one is Jamal Murray he will play for Denver for the first time since April 12, 2021, when he scored 17 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals. Although Khris Middleton last played in the first round of the last playoffs against Chicago, the Milwaukee wing was injured in the second game. Would Milwaukee’s ultimate success have been different if he were still around? We’ll see this season. Without a doubt, by far the most interesting is the return of Orlando Magic center wing Jonathan Isaac. He last played in the bubble on August 2, 2020 to be exact.

  • John Wall
  • Ben Simmons
  • Jonathan Isaac
  • Khris Middleton
  • Jamal Murray

NBA Prediction: Top 5 rookies to watch

This year’s NBA rookies are truly special. Even though the only one from our region to make an appearance is Nikola Jović, who signed with the Miami Heat, the excitement is still high. The second pick Chet Holmgreen is injured, which means he is not on our list. But there are rookies from Orlando, Sacramento, Indiana and Detroit on our list. Detroit Pistons are the team that has the two rookies that deserve our attention.

  • Paolo Banchero
  • Keegan Murray
  • Jaden Ivey
  • Bennedict Mathurin
  • Jalen Duren

NBA Prediction: Top 5 teams looking for the first pick in the draft

In the last few seasons in the NBA, there are a handful of teams that “deliberately” lose games or make a conscious decision to do so. It was very noticeable with the arrival of Zion Williamson a few years ago and it will be even more noticeable this season. The team with the first selection will get to pick the young Frenchman, who is a miracle of nature. Victor Wembenyama stands 223 centimetres tall and has a 245 centimetre arm span. His game is magnificent, which is why most of the NBA wants him. Well, the second choice is not bad either, is it?

  • San Antonio Spurs
  • Houston Rockets
  • Oklahoma City Thunder
  • Indiana Pacers
  • Orlando Magic

NBA Prediction: Top 5 MVP candidates

We conclude our Grosbasket NBA Top 5 Prediction with a pleasing list. Five candidates will fight for the MVP award this NBA season. Who among them will be the most valuable player in the strongest league in the world? Will it be Nikola Jokić for the third time in a row? Will it Giannis Antetokounmpo for the third time after a two-year hiatus? Will it be Jayson Tatum or Joel Embiid, the stars of the East for the first time? What if Luka Dončić becomes MVP? That would be a wonderful way to crown his career and the release of his first Luka 1 basketball sneakers.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
  • Joel Embiid
  • Luka Dončić
  • Nikola Jokić
  • Jayson Tatum
