Five teams to keep an eye on
Five notable players with new teams this season
Five rookies to know
Wait, we did an entire NBA Preview and didn’t mention Anthony Davis?
It’s the Brow’s league now, and everyone else is just playing in it. Davis was recently tabbed by a staggering 86% of NBA General Managers as the player they’d most like to start a franchise with. He’s got a center’s body with a small forward’s skillset, and videos of him draining threes in offseason workouts reemphasize that the sky’s the limit. Nevertheless, the Pelicans have only made the playoffs once in Davis’s career, and they got swept last season. It’s still unlikely he can carry them much farther in the stacked Western Conference, but it’ll be exciting to watch it play out.
