NBA 2020/21 Season: Top Teams To Look Out For

Basketball is a game that is loved by people all over the world. And, to entertain the audience there are various leagues taking place throughout the year. NBA is one such league, which is almost here and has many more playoff contenders that are set to take the NBA 2020/21 season by the storm.

Below is the list of top teams to look out for in the NBA 2020/21 season.

  1. LA Lakers

The LA Lakers has only got better in the offseason. They have strived hard to win all four exhibitions, which have made them one of the top teams to look out for in the 2020/2021 season. However, it cannot be denied that the success of the teams is built on a stifling defense, which is not something that always works. LeBron James is still the best player on the team but he will most probably be on a maintenance program after a short offseason. Although, Anthony Davis is still one player to watch for and help the team dominate the match.

  1. Milwaukee Bucks

The team extended the contract of Giannis Antetokounmpo, which gives hope for them in the 20/21 season. Although the team has lost both their games, Giannis still achieved double-doubles in quick time. Moreover, the good news for Bucks is that the trustworthy Khris Middleton has also displayed some improvements on the defensive end. Small changes in the team in the offseason means the team should play in their best form.

  1. Brooklyn Nets

With the best players like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving being healthy and being able to play, Brooklyn Nets is a team to watch out for in the 20/21 season. Although the team has been a struggling franchise the acquisition of some very talented players in the 2019 offseason is set to change everything for the team. Also, the hiring of the new coach Steve Nash is set to improve things for the Nets. All these new developments make the Nets a team to look out for in the 20/21 season.

  1. LA Clippers

With the presence of superstars like Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, there are huge expectations from the team. One major reason for the below average performance of the team has been the reduced usage of superstars. Mfiondu Kabengele has presented certain worthy defensive expertise whereas trade acquisition Luke Kennard has been a good asset for the team. The Clippers still have a long way to go but with the experience of the new coach, Ty Lue, things are sure to be good for the team in the 20/21 season.

  1. Miami Heat

The young team seems to be working hard to play a good game at the match. They play some of the most visually lovely games in the league. Although the team lacks in experience still it has shown incredible consistency in the game. It is because of the hard work of the team that it was able to beat some of the best teams in the campaign. Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and Precious Achiuwa are some of the best players that the team has, who work tirelessly to take their team towards success. The best thing about Miami Heat is that the team knows how to play together.

  1. Philadelphia 76ers

The offseason has been good for the team, with the team being able to sign some of the best players in the game. With the new head coach Doc Rivers, the team will be hoping to show a good performance in the 20/21 season. However, it is not wise to expect huge growth from the team, as the unusual conditions have put the team in a difficult place. Still, the capability of players like Danny Green, Seth Curry, and Dwight Howard can take the team to the top.

  1. Denver Nuggets

As the team lost Jerami Grant in free agency there are chances that their defense may take a hit, however, with players like Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. in the team, Denver has the best offense in the league. Moreover, with no new coach or system, the team has no obstacles to overcome like the other teams. The team has shown continuity and they are not resting their top playas, which will also work in their favor. With players like Will Barton, Facundo Campazzo, and Nikola Joki, it seems like the Nuggets are ready to rock the league. The team must also be hoping that the stars like Jamal Murray and Nikola continue their form.

  1. Boston Celtics

This team is all about elegance and the team was active in the offseason. With players like Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, the team has nothing much to worry about. The Celtics will also be expecting good support from Marcus Smart and Kemba Walker. Tristan Thompson must solve the team’s issues at the five for some time whereas Jeff Teague has also appeared good with his passing range. The team is expected to give a noteworthy performance in the 20/21 season.
