The limelight of basketball for most of its history has been the NBA and it makes sense—it's the highest level of basketball there is with the supposed highest competition level. However, every March, the basketball community's focus shifts from professional organizations to the many collegiate teams as the NCAA postseason begins, meaning nonstop basketball for a month.

While college basketball dominates the month, there are still major implications for the NBA. During March Madness, it's common for players to elevate their play to the highest level and prove they are NBA players. While most teams have started shifting their game plan and mindset to the playoffs, others will be paying close attention to the madness.
