The NBA season hasn’t started yet. However, the true basketball fans are barely waiting for the next season to start. You can hear them talking about the potential winners of the year next season. It is hard to give precise answers at this moment.
However, after the NBA draft, trades made in the league, and some other parameters, we can start discussing this topic. If you want to find out more about our predictions, continue reading!
We know you expected to see the Golden State Warriors in the first place. However, we will give a small advantage to the Celtics for a pretty simple reason. The Boston Celtics missed their chance to win their 18th championship ring, but we do believe that the NBA team with the most championship titles is ready to fix that this year.
They have been that close! We are sure Tatum and Smart will be even better next year and lead their team to the ring!
Golden State Warriors
Golden State Warriors certainly are one of the strongest teams that have ever played in the NBA league. No, they do not wear magical shoes or have some rituals that bring them additional happiness. All the individuals that play there are extremely talented. They already had the chance to win 4 consecutive NBA titles. Why do you think they are not capable of repeating the previous season?
All the players that were “responsible” for the title are still there. Curry won’t leave by the end of 2026, and Thompson and Green are there until 2024. It may happen that Wiggins will have to leave because of the luxury tax that this club has reached. But, we will see what will happen exactly.
The team that has Giannis Antetokounpo in the team must be one of the favorites of the NBA league. They could be good even in the previous season. However, a lot of players there experienced injuries that automatically influenced their performances.
If they manage to avoid them this year, we are sure Giannis, Holiday, Middleton, and others will reach the semifinals (in the worst case).
Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Reggie Jackson…these players certainly are some sort of synonym for victory. We will see if they will play as a team next year, but we are sure they will be one of the favorites to reach first place in the West.
But, in the previous season, they played only 36 games together. They had good results which confirm the bench is also capable of playing good games. Because of all these factors, we put them in fourth place on this list.
Are you surprised to see this team on the list? Well, Luka Doncic certainly is one of the best players in the world. We are sure he will manage to win a lot of MVP titles in the future.
Unfortunately, he is no longer together with his best friend Boban, but we can agree Dallas made some great trades this season. How far they will manage to go mostly depends on Luka. However, if other players wake up and show their talent, then we are sure Dallas will also be a serious competitor to GSW, Boston, and other teams mentioned on this list.
In our opinion, these are the top 5 teams in the NBA for next season. Of course, there are also some other teams that may have the chance to win the ring. For instance, the Denver Nuggets also have a chance to do something serious next season.
But, they truly have to improve their rooster. Nikola Jokic, who managed to be an MVP for the second straight year can’t play alone. He needs assistance! We truly hope the season will be interesting like the previous one!
