The 2012-13 NBA season is more than halfway complete, which means we have a pretty good idea of where each team stands.
Entering the year, every team had its own expectations. Some were higher than others, but every franchise had goals, and every fanbase had hope.
Midseason grades are based partly on production, although preseason expectations have to be taken into account. There’s a lot of basketball left to play, but it’s become clear which teams are on a path to success and which teams have simply disappointed.
