This NBA season has been, well, rather to form so far.
In the West, the Lakers got Anthony Davis, caused Dwight Howard to become sane, and have raced out to the best record in the conference. The Clippers have been similarly good, the Mavericks and Grizzlies have been pleasant surprises, and we are already wondering if the Warriors will prove that Andrew Wiggins is "actually good" (spoilers: he's not).
In the East, the Bucks have become even more terrifying, the Raptors have currently won 15 straight and look like title contenders after losing Kawhi, and the Sixers are doing Sixers things, which is as good or bad as you believe it to be.
It's about to be the All-Star break, which is changing the format to honor the recently-deceased Kobe Bryant, and features a ton of new young All-Stars like Luka Doncic, Trae Young, and Brandon Ingram. Also our lord and savior Dame Lillard will be there and will probably score 1000 points just because Russell Westbrook is in his immediate vicinity.
