NBA Power Rankings: Season Preview & Predictions

It was just a few months ago the Golden State Warriors were parading down the streets of Oakland in celebration of an NBA Championship. Basketball is back and just in case you missed it we will review some of the offseason highlights before we get to our rankings.

Teams spent the offseason pointing to the injuries of teams the Warriors faced in the playoffs to explain why Golden State won the championship. DeAndre Jordan told the world he was headed to Dallas then some of the Clippers locked him in a room. He stopped answering his phone and re-signed with the Clippers. The Spurs were the big winners of free agency as they signed big man LaMarcus Aldridge. Finally, Billy Donovan decided to leave the Florida Gators and is now the coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
