Finally, the NBA season is almost here. In just days there will be actual NBA games that matter (not just training camp and exhibition games).
The crew here at PBT has put together our NBA season previews for all 30 teams, which we started in the Atlantic Division and moved west through the entire NBA. To make it easier for you to find our preview of your favorite team — then tell us how wrong we are about them — we’re collecting all the previews in one place. Right here.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.
But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.
Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
We had an efficient Carmelo Anthony sighting in the preseason.
Anthony and the Knicks went up against the Wizards and ‘Melo hit 10-of-15 shots to score 21 points. He also had four rebounds and four assists.
Derrick Williams had 23 points on 11 shots to lead the Knicks in scoring, and New York won 115-104.
