There has already been a lot of change in the NBA this offseason and with the Carmelo Anthony and Kyrie Irving (reported) impending trades still looming over Knicks and Cavs' fans, more changes are still to come.

Like with all change, some people welcome it , while other people may not be so thrilled with it (looking at you, PacersNation).

Either way you look at it, the upcoming NBA season will look very different than what we're used to seeing and that can make it fun, whether we like the changes or not.

Oklahoma City Thunder


We're showing some love to the MVP by putting the Thunder at No. 1 ahead of the Rockets, but really you can flip them if you so choose.

Before you do that, remember OKC not only traded a bag of chips and a Dyson vacuum to Indiana for Paul George, but they also re-signed Andre Roberson, they'll have Dougie “McBuckets“ McDermott's sharpshooting all year, and they brought in Patrick Patterson and Ray Felton. Now would you switch them with Houston at No. 2?
在你那样做之前,记住雷霆不仅通过交易一大单便宜薪资,清理空间,得到了步行者的保罗·乔治。 而且他们续约了安德烈·罗伯森,接下来一年,他们还将有道格·迈克德莫特的精准投篮。不仅如此,他们还买下帕特里克·帕特森和雷·费尔顿。现在相比火箭,你会将雷霆换到第二位吗?

Houston Rockets


Honestly, Nos.1 and 2 on the list are interchangeable, it just depends on who you like watching more James Harden or Russell Westbrook. Chris Paul gives the Rockets one of the best backcourts in basketball alongside Harden.


With Nene re-signing and Six Man of the Year Eric Gordon coming off the bench, Houston will be a high-octane offense in 2017-18. The only thing that may come into question is if they can slow anybody down or if they'll just have to put up 130+ points per game in order to get the W.

Minnesota Timberwolves


Whether naysayers want to believe it or not, Jimmy Butler does make the Timberwolves that much better. You know what else does?


Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, and Gorgui Dieng have one year under their belt playing in Coach Thibodeau's complicated defensive scheme. Good thing Butler already knows it, he'll help this young team live up to the hype.

Boston Celtics


Adding Gordon Hayward gives the Celtics a slight edge in the fun category over the Raptors and Wizards — who will both be contending with Boston to take down the Cavs as the kings of the east.


Philadelphia 76ers


It isn't just because of the three guys in the photo (Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz, and Joel Embiid) either. They also have Jahlil Okafor, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, and J.J. Redick. You have even dive a bit deeper and add Nick Stauskas and T.J. McConnell, too.

这也不仅仅是因为图片中的三个人(本·西蒙斯,马克尔·富尔茨,和乔尔·恩比德) 。他们同样拥有贾利尔·奥卡福,达里奥-萨里奇,罗伯特·卡温顿和J.J·雷迪克。你也可以看的更深层一点,加上尼克·斯陶斯卡斯和T.J 麦康奈尔。

This team is stacked with talent and the guys' personalities are quite entertaining as well. If you're a Sixers fan and have been trusting the process, your patience is about to come to fruition.
