Timberwolves and Thunder in the top 5, Magic and Kings in the top 10. Love it! Out with the old, in with the new....

Agree with Boston on top despite Philly being such a close second. Boston is still my Eastern Conference favorite. They have not played their best yet -- and Porzingis has, not surprisingly, drifted somewhat since the hot start -- but they’re still managing to win games. As this group accumulates more playing time together, look out.

As for the Mavs: they have become utterly predictable. The loss to the Clippers over the weekend was pathetic. It’s also ironic that their offense-or-bust identity has been upstaged thus far (at least as far as watchability goes) by none other than Coach Carlisle.

Nice to see some new teams succeeding at the quarter point. Looks like Miami made the right call on not trading for Beal. Nice to see the clippers struggling so. Are you not entertained?

Having watched all, or almost all, of the Bulls games, I'm disappointed that you didn't just put a picture of a literal dumpster fire as your team analysis

Nineteen teams are playing .500 ball or better and ten teams are playing .600 ball or better. I'm enjoying the competitive balance.
