The NBA is a league of storylines, and this season will be filled with them. What is every team’s biggest question leading into the 2018-19 season?
Every fall the teams of the NBA approach the season with questions. How will they perform this upcoming season? Were their offseason decisions the right ones? Can anyone challenge the Golden State Warriors for the title?
Last year saw plenty of questions after an action-packed summer.
Who would end up winning the trades for Paul George and Jimmy Butler? Were the Houston Rockets or the Oklahoma City Thunder bigger threats to the Warriors in the West? How good would the Boston Celtics super-team be?
These questions were answered, and often in unexpected ways. That should prove to be the case this season as well, both for teams in contention and those simply trying to find a path forward. Eve team has a story to tell, and those stories are yet to be written.
Everyone thinks they know the ending, that the Warriors will win their fourth title in five seasons — something not done since the Bill Russell Celtics.
Yet even the Warriors have questions coming into the year. What is the big question facing each team this season, and how might those questions be answered?
