The NBA continues forward with an interesting and one of the most complex seasons yet. After the start of the season, basketball games are seemingly bringing in hordes of fans from all over the country.

Into the standings, the top teams in the conference have shown no surprise to the NBA community. In the Eastern Conference, the Brooklyn Nets are in first with a 17-8 win-loss ratio. In the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors are at the top with a 20-4 win-loss ratio. 

Player injuries and conditions have been devastating to teams in the conferences. All-star players such as Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum, and DeMar DeRozan are currently out of the league.

The Brooklyn Nets have been outperforming in the Eastern Conference with the players they have on their team. Players Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, James Harden, Blake Griffin, and LaMarcus Aldridge have been earning their place at the top.

To no surprise, the Golden State Warriors are dominating the league. Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Stephen Curry have proven their rightful spot, leading the conference with a 20-4 record.

As for Chicago Bulls fans, the team has not been able to perform at full capacity with the missing two stars on their team, Alex Caruso and DeMar DeRozan. With a bold prediction of the team being top of the league, fans have been disappointed with the performances they have done without specific players.

More than just Chicago fans have been underwhelmed by the team’s performances. The Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers, and Portland Trail Blazers have not played as predicted based on the rosters. Fans are still hopeful for the comeback of their favorite teams before the end of the NBA season.

Everyone has been stoked for the return of what basketball should always be. With the return of some amazing players, basketball fans are able to truly enjoy watching such a competitive sport.
