With Christmas right around the corner, it’s time to take a look at the most important item on each and every NBA team’s wish list.

One of the biggest days of the NBA calendar — and the most wonderful days of the year in general — is approaching. With only one weekend separating us from Dec. 25, it’s easy to start looking ahead to the slate of games for Christmas Day, the haul of gifts that await basketball fans and the turning of the calendar year to 2019.

However, before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we’ve got one last chance to take a look at what our favorite NBA teams should have at the top of their holiday wish list.

All 30 teams in the association have given their fanbase a gift at one time or another. From game-winning buzzer-beaters to championship runs to underdog stories and everything in between, NBA basketball is the gift that keeps on giving.

With that being said, no team is perfect — not even the Golden State Warriors. Each and every one needs something heading into the holiday season, so with Christmas just around the corner, now is the best time to examine what those things are.

In that holiday spirit, it’s time to take a look at the biggest item at the top of the wish list for all 30 NBA teams (in alphabetical order). Some of these gifts may take a while to materialize, but for the most part, they provide a good idea of what each team should be wishing for with the remainder of the 2018-19 campaign in mind.
