The preseason’s intensity is certainly not close come playoff time. It’s a platform for teams to figure out how their nucleus and support cast will function. This preseason, teams identified as “super teams” have already been showing signs of dominance. The east is no longer a joke when the playoffs arrive. LeBron isn’t having another cakewalk to the finals, as the stacked Bulls, Knicks, and Celtics squad present a huge challenge. On the other side, the outcome in the west is basically decided. The Golden State Warriors already have their superiority felt with a only few preseason games. It’s nearly impossible to match their starting lineup, let alone outperform their bench. Who will stop the splash bothers? Will Kevin Durant be contained? Will they take home this year’s Larry O’Brien trophy? Though the Dubs seem as favorites, it’s still difficult to conclude since the other super teams haven’t unlocked their complete potential yet. Overall, “unpredictable” is how the entire season will turn out.
