One of the busiest offseasons in recent memory shook up the NBA landscape dramatically, but one thing remains clear despite flurries of high-profile player movement: The Golden State Warriors will return to the hardwood in October as the unequivocal favorites to repeat as champions. There are plenty of interesting questions heading the season: Can the Boston Celtics avenge last year’s Eastern Conference Finals loss to the Cavaliers? Will the Milwaukee Bucks make a leap? Are the Philadelphia 76ers capable of staying healthy and contending for a playoff spot? In this video, the Northwest Division will be the focus. This division, in my opinion is the best division in the league right now. Every team in this division has a chance to make the playoffs. Thunder, Nuggets, Timberwolves made big acquistions to improve their chances in the playoffs. Blazers will have Nurkic for a full season and Jazz will try to bounce back from losing their franchise player in the offseason.
