A Quick-Ass 2022-2023 NBA Preview

Yeah I know, I’m late with this.

But you know what, this comes with juggling a full-time career (not job, CAREER) and family. Remember boys and girls, I’m not getting paid for this shit.

However, I do enjoy sports blogging as it keeps me close to a lot of the sports I loved since childhood. In this case, the NBA preview (albeit a late one) is on the docket.

I won’t go into specifics division by division, as most of us (including me) only care about two things: who’s gonna make the playoffs and who will win it all.

And you know what, most teams only played ONE game so far, so I’m kinda in the clear if you think about it.

At any rate…

Eastern Conference

Top six seeds

  1. Milwaukee Bucks
  2. Boston Celtics
  3. Miami Heat
  4. Philadelphia 76ers
  5. Cleveland Cavaliers
  6. Brooklyn Nets

Play-In Participants

  • Atlanta Hawks
  • Chicago Bulls
  • Charlotte Hornets
  • Washington Wizards

Extra analysis: the Nets are gonna fall short again with their no-defense playing, Ben Simmons’ non-scoring selves with another early playoff exit. Look for Kevin Durant to try to bitch and moan his way out of town AGAIN.

Conference Champ: Milwaukee Bucks

Western Conference

Top six seeds

  1. Golden State Warriors
  2. Memphis Grizzlies
  3. Los Angeles Clippers
  4. Phoenix Suns
  5. Dallas Mavericks
  6. New Orleans Pelicans

Play-In Participants

  • Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Denver Nuggets
  • Los Angeles Lakers
  • Portland Trailblazers

Extra analysis: this was SO TOUGH to pick. The West is mad deep and will make for one fun ride to follow. Oh and by the way, as long as the Lakers employ Russell Westbrook, they won’t go but so far.

Conference Champ: Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Finals: Bucks over Clippers (long live the Greek Freak!!!)
