Every NBA team has played enough of the 2012-13 season that it's now possible to give them legitimate grades for their performances thus far.
Going into the latest edition of the Association, some squads were expected to make the playoffs rather easily, while others were supposed to at least fight for a playoff spot. Some teams were expected lottery locks, while others were true title contenders.
Well, those expectations might be hard to remember now, but they're going to serve as the benchmarks used for determining these grades.
With dozens of games under the belt of each squad, the expectations have shifted. We now have a clearer picture of the NBA's landscape. The pretenders have emerged, if you will.
So, how does your team fare on this report card?
