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 Southwest Division will be the focus. I believe every team beside the Mavericks, have a chance to make the playoffs. Spurs and the Rockets are the not only the top teams in the division, but the Western Conference. Grizzlies might take a step back and the Pelicans will be looked at to make some noise with DeMarcus Cousins there for a full season.
